Quake 4 v1.1


Performance Comparisons with Quake 4

Quake 4
id Software, in conjunction with developer Raven, recently released the latest addition to the wildly popular Quake franchise, Quake 4. Quake 4 is based upon an updated and slightly modified version of the Doom 3 engine, and as such performance characteristics between the two titles are very similar.  Like Doom 3, Quake 4 is also an OpenGL game that uses extremely high-detailed textures and a ton of dynamic lighting and shadows, but unlike Doom3, Quake 4 features some outdoor environments as well. We ran these Quake 4 benchmarks using a custom demo with the game set to its "High-Quality" mode, at resolutions of 1,280 x 1,024 and 1,600 x 1,200 without anti-aliasing enabled and then again with 4X AA and 8X aniso enabled simultaneously.

NVIDIA powered cards typically offer better performance in Quake 4 than ATI's, and you can see that's the case here. The EN7800GT TOP Silent shows up the X1800 XL by a few frames per second at both resolutions.  The standard clocked 7800 GT lagged behind the XL though, proving the EN7800GT Top Silent's increased clocks give it the edge here.
