Unreal Tournament 2003
In general, the High-End cards go on a par (remember about the "optimizations" in this test). In the Middle-End sector the Connect3D cards lose in the heavy modes, though the RADEON 9600 PRO wins in the light one (without AA and anisotropy) and in the AA mode, and the RADEON 9600 keeps close to it.
In the low-end sector the RADEON 9200 is still ahead.
Unreal II: The Awakening
The RADEON is matchless!
While the RADEON wins in the High-End and Middle-End sectors at the expense of more efficient shaders, the RADEON 9200 loses because it doesn't support DX9 and its shaders v1.1 are pretty slow, the FX 5200 performs not bad in the v1.1. with its crawling DX9 functions.
In general, the cards perform quite well as compared to their competitors. They have both victories and lost battles. But I can't say that one or another RADEON or GeForce FX can be considered an undoubted champion. It's for you to decide and make the choice.
I'd complain about so poor accessory packs and miserable retail packages. But some mass media sources shows with their poll results that many of those who buy cards of even High-End level don't care much about the packages. I can't agree with them, but it's my own opinion.
