    Quickie: CPU-Bound Questions

    I did search, so don't flame me :P

    Just wondering... A couple questions

    1) Any word on how CPU-bound this game will be? My vid card is pretty pwnage (HIS X1900 XT which can OC past XTX speeds), but my CPU isn't so much compared to newer systems (2.8Ghz overclocked San Diego Core... 1GB of TCCD RAM with 280 FSB). It would be great if it relies more on the GPU, since, even on UT2k4, I max out at 85FPS, regardless of how high I set the resolution.

    2) Which options affect the CPU in the settings of UT2k4? I typically run with everything maxed at 1280x960 with said 85FPS, but I was just interested...

    Well seeing as how UT3 is much more shader intensive and utilizing next gen graphics, I would say at higher resolutions it should be GPU bound. Where at lower resolutions it would likely be CPU bound.

    This is an educated guess btw.

      The game is capped at this online, try against some bots offline. I guess your Engine bound at the moment

        turn vsync off as well because that will sync your framerate to your vertical refresh rate. assuming you are even running a CRT anymore.
