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 and 1,600 x 1,200 without anti-aliasing enabled and then again with 4X AA and 8X aniso enabled simultaneously.



The XFX GeForce 7800 GT smoked the All-In-Wonder X1800 XL in our custom Quake 4 benchmark. In this test, the XFX GeForce 7800 GT had a significant performance advantage at both resolutions, regardless of whether or not anti-aliasing was enabled. The performance deltas separating the two cards were much larger in the default tests, but even with AA and aniso enabled the XFX GeForce 7800 GT was between 21% and 25% faster than the All-In-Wonder X1800 XL.
