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 with 4X AA and 8X aniso enabled simultaneously.


The HIS Radeon X1900 XT IceQ3 performed relatively well in our custom Quake 4 benchmark, but NVIDIA's traditional dominance in this test and the Radeon X1900 XTX's higher clock speeds meant a last place finish for HIS here. The HIS Radeon X1900 XT IceQ3 finished this test between 5 and 10 frames per second behind the GeForce 7900 GTX here depending on the test configuration.  It trailed the Radeon X1900 XTX by approximately 3 - 4 frames per second at both resolutions as well, and the GX2 simply couldn't be touched.
