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 1024x768 and 1280x1024 with 4X AA and 8X aniso enabled simultaneously.

In our Quake 4 tests, we saw more of the same, with all of the cards performing similarly to what we saw in Prey.  Once again, the GeForce 8600GTS was the top performer with the HD 2600XT and 2600Pro OC performing around the level of the GeForce 8600GT.  The Sapphire HD 2400XT dipped fairly low, proving even medium quality gaming at 1024x768 just isn't a realistic endeavor.
