It looks like it might, but I'm CPU limited so much on this game I can't really tell how much help it gives.

Yes, It does, very much so!


1920X1200 0AA/16AF 16 Player Deathmatch game running fraps


90 FPS Min

165 FPS Average

295 FPS Max

eVga 8800GTX's in SLI
Intel Quad @ 3.00Ghz



If you play online the game is limited to 90FPS MAX.

So I never drop below 90 while playing online.

Very nice. Can you post a pic of task manager showing the core usage? I'm curious as to how well it is loading all 4 cores.

Just a heads up in case anyone else experiences this, I got the same problem on installing as outlined in this thread:

http://utforums.epicgames.com/showthread.php?t=585672

I've never had a game crap out on an install like this before. In the end I deleted all registry keys, moved the entire DVD contents to a folder on my hard-drive, and installed from there. Fortunately that worked.

Anyway, couldn't get the multiplayer running yet so just tried some single-player stuff. It plays super fast but it feels VERY like UT2004 with a facelift. No disrespect to the folks at Epic, but seriously, isn't it about time they wrote some new music for the UT series? Also, I think it'll be more fun when there's more maps released. Apart from that, graphics are impressive, and it "feels" very right. I hope there's some more graphics options to tweak soon and patches to improve the menus/multiplayer browser.

These are just my immediate thoughts that will probably change with more play!

Just picked up my collectors edition. Installed without any issues (took a while... long while). Did some CTF and campaign online, the texture work is impressive. Seems higher res than the Demo, but it was different maps so its hard to say. Overall it looks amazing considering how well it runs (60 fps capped most of the time).

Listening to the video tutorials now while messing with the new UnrealEd.

You bring up a very good point. It has the exact same limited options for graphical settings as the demo. A modern game needs these to make these features configurable in order for it to scale back with older hardware. Crysis ran better on my old X800XT than UT3 just cause I could disable stuff.

The multiplayer menu and scoreboard needs serious work. There is no display for kills, deaths, or even latency.

Right now, it does feel a lot like a console port in those regards. =/

I've noticed this annoying issue: ingame it will lock up for 10-12 seconds (on any map) and will then unfreeze like nothing happen (it's not unstable oc since nothing crashes and I can alt tab without any graphics error). Anyone else have this? A thread about it here:

I really like it so far and I'm really enjoying the Gateway map. It seems to be running well on my setup (x2 4800+ / 8800GTX).
