Unreal Performance Test 2002 Released

Can today's PC hardware stand-up to the increasingly complex and intense computer games of tomorrow? Although designers continue to push graphical detail and performance, hardware manufacturers often test their wares against the standards of yesterday. Epic Games today unveiled the Unreal Performance Test 2002, a benchmark intended to be indicative of the future of gaming.

Aiming to stress test the functionality and power of today's graphics performance, the benchmark is a barometer of how current hardware technology measures up against next generation gaming applications. The Unreal Performance Test utilizes Epic's own Unreal Engine to torture test today and tomorrow's CPUs and graphics processors. The content being used in the current version of the test shows as much as 1,000 times the detail seen in Epic's 1999 title, Unreal Tournament.

The benchmark represents the latest internal build of the Unreal Engine. It is designed to test polygon counts, CPU performance, AI and animation at the highest possible settings. As Epic's next-generation Unreal engine is constantly evolving, the Unreal Performance Test 2002 will be continually updated.

Most gaming sites talk about it but there's no download link :)
