It's time again to play Unreal Gold with 3Dfx Voodoo5 5500 Agp Arctic Accelero L2 Plus Version, a special graphics card modded by ciacara, as you likely already knows. This time our modder likes to match the 3dfx card with a CPU Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6800 working at over 3300 MHz, and to test this setup with the historical benchmark 3DMark 99 (getting an interesting score too). Unreal's graphics settings include the Full HD (1920x1080 pixels) video resolution. Furthermore, it's interesting to note ciacara has chosen to run Unreal via its Direct3D engine, but visual quality is near to Glide APIs. Is maybe he using a 3dfx card :) ?
