Unreal Tournament 3

Crysis

Unreal Tournament 3 is a first person shooter developed by Epic Games and is the follow up to best selling FPS Unreal Tournament 2004. UT3 is based on the Unreal Engine 3.

For more detailed information on what UE3 is capable of, check out Epic’s Unreal Engine Technology site, here.

Thanks go to the guys at Olrac.org for putting this benchmark together.

Settings

Specs: 1600 x 1200, Level detail 5, model detail 5.
Map: CTF-Omicron-Dawn-bots
No. of Bots: 12
Time:
60 seconds

Something that must be noted before reading the results is that Unreal Tournament 3’s benchmark is based around bots running around a level. This means that the benchmark runs differently each time although the environment is the same. This has an affect on testing which is why we repeat them 3 times and take the average of the scores.

Aeneon XTune PC12800 Results

Weirdly here, the Tracer kit gets trashed by the others. I doubt that memory could influence such huge differences between FPS, but even repeating the test 3 times threw up the same results. Take these ones with a pinch of salt, or at least compare them to the little difference shown in the Crysis ones before judging the kit.

Cost

These modules will set you back £82 on the Crucial website, which seems like a great deal for the money. A few months back, DDR3 was costing over £300, now a 2GB kit will cost you £80? That aint bad.
