Unreal Tournament 2004
We can’t see any difference between the participating graphics cards in the “pure speed” mode.
The difference also evades us in the “eye candy” mode, yet we can discern that the GeForce 6 family is inferior to the RADEON X8 series in 1600x1200. The MSI NX6800GT at its default frequencies is only capable of competing with the RADEON X800 XL.
The Metallurgy map outlines the gaps between the graphics cards more clearly, and in all resolutions, excepting 1024x768, we see the NX6800GT have a higher speed than even the RADEON X850 XT Platinum Edition.
The MSI card performs well enough even after we enable full-screen anti-aliasing with anisotropic filtering, but it drops back to the level of the RADEON X800 XL in 1600x1200, while the more advanced RADEON models go ahead thanks to their efficient memory controller and high operational frequencies.
