    Leadtek WinFast A300 Ultra MyViVo Review
    By Ryan "Speedy" Wissman :  June 2, 2003

    Quake 3: Arena Performance

    Quake 3 is the gold standard OpenGL benchmark, and is a prime reason why we continue to use it at Sharky Extreme. With its highly repeatable results, it is still one of the most popular methods of comparing different video cards. In this test suite we match up the 3D competition using the standard timedemo001. Quake 3 benchmarks were run with the default High Quality options and detail levels ramped to maximum in our special MAX setting.

    The GeForce FX's higher fill rate pays off in Quake 3 testing, as the WinFast A300 Ultra MyViVo is able to edge the Radeon 9700 Pro out by quite a few frames in each resolution.

    Unreal Tournament 2003 Performance

    Unreal Tournament 2003 is the mainstay of our Direct3D real-world game benchmarks, and offers up two specific tests. The first is Flyby, which takes a canned tour of the game world and then offers up a framerate score. The second is Botmatch, and this is a more game-oriented test than Flyby, but it also brings with it added CPU dependency.

    In the UT 2003 Flyby tests, the results are much closer, but the GeForce FX is still able to score a little higher than the Radeon 9700 Pro at the higher resolutions. The GeForce4 remains quite a ways behind the other two cards.

    The UT 2003 Botmatch test also show extremely close results across the board, with the Radeon 9700 Pro able to beat the Leadtek GeForce FX 5600 Ultra by a few frames.

    Comanche 4 Performance

    Novalogic's Comanche 4 benchmark has proven itself to be a solid gauge of 3D video card and CPU performance, and despite the relatively low framerate scores, remember that the relative position is all that matters. These tests were performed at 1024x768x32 with sound disabled.

    The scores are extremely close in the Comanche 4 tests, and are so much so, that a difference of 1-2 fps between them is hardly worth noting.
