3D gaming performance (in fps)  (Longer bars indicate better performance)
Unreal Tournament 2003 Flyby-Antalus 1,024x768  

To measure 3D gaming performance, CNET Labs uses Epic Games' Unreal Tournament 2003, widely used as an industry-standard benchmark. We use Unreal to measure a desktop's performance with the DirectX 8.0 (DX8) interface at a 32-bit color depth and at a resolution of 1,024x768 and 1,600x1,200. Antialiasing and anisotropic filtering are disabled during our 1,024x768 tests and are set to 4X and 8X respectively during our 1,600x1,200 tests. At this color depth and these resolutions, Unreal provides an excellent means of comparing the performance of low-end to high-end graphics subsystems. We report the results of Unreal's Flyby-Antalus test in frames per second (fps).

eMachines offers reasonable support and repair polices for its desktops, including the eMachines T3092; this is especially true considering the low price the company charges for its systems. eMachines' Web site will be your primary source for support with this system; it features FAQ pages, driver downloads, and live chat with an eMachines tech-support rep, available weekdays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT. eMachines provides phone support seven days a week from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. PT during the first year, but it's a toll call. Hardware repair via depot service or through a parts exchange is free during the initial year. You can upgrade the standard one-year warranty to either a two- or three-year plan for an additional charge, and the highlight of these extended plans is a "more than three repairs, and it's replaced" policy.
