Unreal Tournament III
Unreal Tournament 3 only confirmed many of the preceding results, again pointing up the closeness of the performance of the 9600 GT and the HD 3870. The latter was symbolically ahead here, due to the penalizing limitation of a frame buffer of only 256 MB with antialiasing (which, incidentally, shows why the 9600 GT comes with 512 MB.), We also noted the inability of the HD 3850 to keep up (12% behind without filters) in spite of its having 512 MB.
I see the lowest priced 9600GT at $90, %65 after rebate, with free Far Cry 2.
Not bad at all.
