Overclocking The AMD 4200+ AM2 Processor Part 2Wed, Aug 09, 2006 - 12:00 AM
ID Software; Quake 4 v1.2
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 1280×1024 the 4200+ scored 68.59 FPS with the overclocked processor coming in at a faster 93.44 FPS. With nearly an extra 25 FPS or 36% performance improvement the game play was smooth as can be.
