Unreal Tournament 2004


Unreal Tournament 2004 is the latest instalment to the Unreal Tournament series. The full version of the game is based on DX9 and has faced quite a big make over and is a lot more intensive then its predecessor.




At the higher resolution the new 4.8 drivers increase in performance while the 4.9 drivers seem to be slower. There seems to be a bit of a trend with the 4.9's being slower - hopefully the final release isn't like this.


Doom 3


Doom 3 is the latest game to hit our test lab and is one of the most intensive games to dates. With our own custom time demo we are able to give a realistic rating on what kind of FPS you will be achieving.

At the lower resolution both the 4.8 and 4.9's see an increase when compared to the 4.7's but when moving to the higher resolution the 4.7's seem the quickest with the 4.9's being only slightly slower.
