Default Unreal Tournament 3 FPS.

Alright so I was playing UT3 with my new computer. and they don't believe that at heavy action areas my FPS does not drop lower than 45FPS and averages higher than 55FPS most of the time(60FPS when low action most of time but dips sometimes). I was running at 1900x1200 and had max details on and all that vsync and smooth framerate and all that checked. Should this video card and computer be able to put out the performance I am getting or am I just lucky?(computer is in sig)

[Case = Corsair 400R][CPU = Core i5 3.4Ghz to 4.6Ghz /w Noctua NH-U12P SE2 CPU Cooler][Mobo = Asus P8Z77-V LK][RAM = 16GB DDR3 Patriot Viper 3 1600Mhz RAM][Video Card = PNY GTX 670][SSD = 240GB Force GT][Samsung S27B350 27inch monitor][Running Windows 7 64Bit]

Default Re: Unreal Tournament 3 FPS.

If you have Vsync on then the frame rate won't go above your monitor's refresh rate anyway. The Unreal 3 engine does seem to run very well even on older cards, so I would say that is definitely normal for an 8800GTS 512.
Here are some benches for UT3 and the GTS:


AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE @ 4.0GHz + TU120E lapped - MSI 770-CD45 AM3 - 2x2GB OCZ DDR3 1333MHz - Sapphire HD 4870 - Samsung Spinpoint 500GB 7200RPM 16MB cache HDD - Tagan TG600-BZ Piperock - (Currently open test bed) - Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit.

Yeah, the Unreal 3 engine was built to be very scalable, and even on older hardware (well...I'm not talking Geforce 2 here), can run pretty much maxed out. I was built to run well in High with hardware of now, unlike the Crytek 2 engine running Crysis.
