Quake 4
id Software, in conjunction with developer Raven, 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 1280x1024 and 1600x1200 without anti-aliasing enabled and then again with 4X AA and 8X aniso enabled simultaneously.



Our Quake 4 results have much more in common with the earlier benchmarks, dropping the X1950 Pro squarely behind the GeForce 7 triumvirate, in all but the low-res testing with anti-aliasing and aniso enabled. The drop-off of both Radeon cards is quite evident at the higher resolution, where the X1950 Pro performed 17-20% slower than any of the GeForce cards.
