DX 8.1 vs. DX9
Unreal Tournament 2003
While we see some slight differences with the RADEON 9700, 9500, and 8500 at lower resolutions in flyby, for the most part performance is the same among these graphics cards regardless of the API. Therefore, if you feel uncomfortable upgrading to DirectX 9, feel free to stick with DX8 and reconsider the upgrade once DX9 content becomes available.
