Lucasart's Jedi Knight 2 Benchmark
"Which one of these buttons calls your parents to pick you up?"


Jedi Knight 2 is another OpenGL game that I personally am particularly interested in, being a consummate Star Wars fan. This game is based on a heavily modified version of the Quake 3 engine, and fully supports advanced shaders as well as high texture resolutions and effects. With some modifying of the multiplayer shortcut, you can use the built-in DEMO to produce some benchmarks.

At 1024x768, all cards are within 3 FPS of each other, and no clear-cut winner can be determined. Even at 1280x1024, the differences of the top 4 are negligible, although the GeForce 3 starts to drop off by 10 FPS. Only at 1600x1200 can we really make an observation of the differences in performance. For the second straight OpenGL game, the Radeon has shown some impressive scores, and actually takes first place, albeit at 0.1FPS over the GF4 Ti 4600. The two Ti 4200 cards are close behind, with the edge going to the Asus V8420.

Max Payne Benchmarks
No Payne...No Gain!

The last game I sunk my teeth into was Remedy's Max Payne. This is another graphically intensive game, and by applying a mod from http://www.3dcenter.de, we were able to get some DirectX 8.1 benchmarks using their custom VGA Demo.

We have the usual pattern from top to bottom in all three graphs here. At first, all but the Radeon have similar numbers, but the differences really begin to show at the higher resolutions. There simply is no way to keep up with the higher core speed of the Ti 4600. The slightly higher core speed and addition of 64MB of faster RAM keep the Asus card above the other Ti 4200.
