Q3 Engine Based Freebie

Wolfenstein: ET
We also ran through a batch of timedemos with the OpenGL game Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory. Wolfenstein: ET is a free, standalone multiplayer game that is based on the excellent Return to Castle Wolfenstein, that was released a few years back. It uses a heavily modified version of the Quake 3 engine, which makes it a very easy to use benchmarking tool. We created our own custom demo and used the built-in timedemo feature to check each card's frame-rate. The tests below were run at 1024x768 and again at 1600x1200, without anti-aliasing and again with 4X AA and 8X aniso filtering enabled concurrently.

This is one of those older tests that is becoming less and less taxing on today's video hardware.  This time we saw a rare stance by the PCX 5750, which took a second place spot at 1600x1200.  Nonetheless, this was still the X700 Pro's show, maintaining a minimum of 20 FPS over its closest competitor at either resolution.  When we enabled the AA and Anisotropic Filtering, the differences were a few frames short of double in most cases.
