    ASUS AX800 XT 256-MB Review
    By Vince Freeman :  October 28, 2004

    Unreal Tournament 2003 Performance

    Unreal Tournament 2003 includes a benchmark program that automatically tests in two separate modes. The one we're going to be looking at is Flyby, which takes a canned tour of the UT game world and then offers up a framerate score and really hammers both the system and video card. The UT 2003 Botmatch results are no longer shown, instead leaving that for the newer Unreal Tournament 2004 to supply.

    Unreal Tournament 2003 Flyby benchmarking is a bit different story than the previous tests, and here we see the ASUS AX800 XT moving to the head of the pack. The lead over both the GeForce 6800 Ultra and GT is fairly noticeable, and this extends through both 1280x1024 and 1600x1200 resolutions. The initial benchmark test uses standard detail settings, and it will be interesting to see the scores once we rack up the AA and AF details.

    Unreal Tournament 2003 AA and AF Performance

    With 4X AA and 8X AF settings enabled, the Unreal Tournament 2003 rankings did not change, and the ASUS AX800 XT even extended its performance lead. While the first UT 2003 Flyby test did show a nice gap between current and last-gen video cards, the 4X AA and 8X AF settings really separate the two groups quite significantly.

    Unreal Tournament 2004 Performance

    Unreal Tournament 2004 is an upgraded version of the popular UT series, and also includes support for Botchmatch demos. This is the next step for Unreal Tournament graphics and performance, and is another serious test for current video cards. For this benchmark, we've used the UMark GUI interface with the following settings: Colossus map, 12 players and High Image Quality graphics.

    The UT 2004 Botmatch benchmarking is an extremely tight race between the ASUS AX800 XT and GeForce 6800 Ultra, with only a few frames-per-second separating the two cards. The GeForce 6800 GT is also not far back, while all three of the top-end cards move well ahead of the Radeon 9800XT and GeForce FX 5950 Ultra.

    Unreal Tournament 2004 AA and AF Performance

    The higher-end 4X AA/8X AF detail setting once again shows a close race between the ASUS AX800 XT and the two GeForce 6800-based cards, but this time it is the AX800 XT out to a slim lead. There's nothing slim about the gap between the ASUS AX800 XT and the Radeon 9800XT and GeForce FX 5950 Ultra, as the Radeon X800 XT nearly doubles these scores.
