Quake 4 v1.3

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 this 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 through 2,560 x 1,600 4X AA and 8X aniso enabled simultaneously.

The performance trend we witnessed in virtually all of our previous benchmarks played out again in our custom Quake 4 test. Here's the Asus EN8800GTS once again finished alongside the reference GeForce 8800 GTX 320MB card and just behind XFX's higher-clocked model. And once again at the higher XHD resolutions, framerates dropped off quite a bit.
