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 GeForce 7950 GX2 tore right through our custom Quake 4 benchmark. It absolutely crushed all of the single card configurations, and the XFX version even hung right up there with a GeForce 7900 GTX SLI rig.  The reference GeForce 7950 GX2 performed just a bit lower than the X1900 XT CrossFire rig, but the XFX GeForce  7950 GX2, with its higher GPU and memory clocks, outpaced the CrossFire setup by significant margins at both resolutions we tested.
