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 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.

As you all probably know, NVIDIA cards have a history of outperforming ATI cards in Open GL games, and that's what we see here. The $200+ cheaper 7900 GT Xtreme is outperforming the X1900 XTX at all settings. The benefits of SLI aren't really apparent until we crank up the settings to 1600x1200 with 4X AA and 8X AF, where SLI offers an increase of over 30FPS.
