ID Software?s QUAKE 4, developed by Raven Software, takes players into an epic invasion on a barbaric alien planet in one of the most anticipated first person shooters for 2005. Even today in 2006 Quake 4 is played by professional gamers around the world in the famed World Series of Video Games (WSVG) and still one of the most played first person shooters on the market today.
Quake 4 runs on an updated version of the DOOM 3 graphics engine, so performance is expected to be on par with that of DOOM 3. We ran Quake 4 with the version 1.2 patch, which adds dual-core processor support. At 1280x1024 with 4xAA/16xAF Intel's latest and greatest processor takes the lead by nearly 4FPS.
Since we had SMP enabled in the game we thought 1600x1200 performance might show a difference between the two processors, but no such luck. At 1600x1200 with 4xAA/16xAF we were GPU bound as both processors ran 57FPS.
