Unreal Tournament 2004
Like in Half-Life 2 , Far Cry and Painkiller , all the participating graphics cards, including the ASUS Extreme N7800GTX TOP and the RADEON X1800 XT, have identical speeds in the Torlan demo.
The Metallurgy demo puts a smaller load on the central processor and a higher load on the graphics on and gives us an opportunity, at least in the “eye candy” mode, to evaluate the performance of the ASUS Extreme N7800GTX TOP. The ASUS card is a negligible 4fps ahead of the reference GeForce 7800 GTX, the absolute frame rates being about 120-125fps. Anyway, the Extreme N7800GTX TOP and the GeForce 7800 GTX take the first two places since the RADEON X1800 XT and, moreover, XL can’t show their best in games that do not use complex pixel shaders.
