Well, My laptop is not exactly battery friendly.. it also has a 17" Cinema Wide screen Display and Bult in Wireless and a built in digital camera.

It does not go into "power conservation" mode like most other laptops around today. This thing Runs Lights out till it shuts off.... which is about 1 Hour and 12 minuets till it dies...

I reran the test again and got similar results.. but that silly 5 FPS low score is now where it should be in the teens. I personally never saw the FPS get anywhere near that low so i have no idea why its throwing numbers like that.

The average looks about right.

Yikes! The Geforce 4 with 2500XP combo beats the Radeon 9700 with 2400XP and 1GB DDR in every test. That is just scary. The GeForce has lower lowest frames (but it should!!!) I'd just like to know how/why the hell it's beating my 9700!!! I wouldn't think that 2400 to 2500 processor would make more difference than video card.

TWIMTBP indeed. Sigh...

The benchmark looks to be CPU limited & leans towards it more than the graphics card being used .
if you look at the bechmarks posted in this thread you will see they'r close whatever the card , except if its too old of course .

i agree with you about the Ti4400 results its great nevertheless , & dont forget that the 9700 should spread its wings with the AA,AF are enabled or at higher resolutions & i dont see you'r using any of those .

i'm getting this since UT2003 benchies with both ATI or Nvidia cards .
i guess its the cpu effect when you run the benchmark diffrenet times , still looks weird to me ...

It's strange because during game play, I never notice my frame rate dipping to the levels indicated in the benchmark. There has to be a flaw/incompatibility between the benching style of UT2003 and this game. That's the only thing that I can think of to explain such a huge discrepancy among some of the scores.

Fallguy-

I think you can manage higher settings by manually changing the ut2004.ini settings for "D3Drender." If I recall you could set graphic settings to UltraHigh or Highest, anisotropic filtering, etc. You could tax your GPU that little bit extra!

Cheers.
