Power Color 9800 Platinum Edition - Manipulated Radeon 9800 Pro - Benchmarks - Unreal Tournament 2004

After doing a little digging, we quickly discovered that the 9800 Platinum Edition is nothing more than a Radeon 9800 Pro GPU which is cut-down a little to help reduce the retail price for consumers. The 9800 Platinum Edition only uses a 128-bit memory bus compared to the 256-bit on the "true" 9800 Pro and the memory speed is a little slower on the Platinum Edition by around 40MHz (80MHz DDR) which gives the "true" 9800 Pro the ability to push about 2GB more bandwidth per second.

Unreal Tournament 2004 or UT2004 for short is the latest instalment to the Unreal Tournament series. The full version of the game is based on DX9 (the demo only uses DX8.1 like UT2003) and has faced quite a big make over and is a lot more intensive then its predecessor.

 

 

 

In our first real-world game benchmark, the results even up a little. In fact, at the lower resolution the 9600 XT is able to beat the 9800 PE by a small margin. As we increase the resolution, the 9800 PE takes the lead back and the higher powered cards take charge.
