Testing:

Quake 4 is next up for testing. We will be using the Hardware OC Quake 4 Benchmark Utility version 1.5 to complete the testing with this game. You will need to update to the most current version for the latest time demo and bug fixes. Average FPS (frames per second) will be the measure used.

 

The settings we will use are listed below:

  • IDsoft Demo
  • Quality: High
  • Aspect Ratio: [4:3]
  • Anti-aliasing: 4×
  • Anisotropic filtering: 4x
  • Symmetric Multi-Processing (SMP) enabled

 

 

 

 

 

 

The HD 3850 keeps within eleven frames of the powerhouse in this review, the 8800GTX, at the resolution of 1280x1024. Considering the market that this card is designed to compete in, it does well in this comparison. Crossfire does not give as large a performance increase as I feel it should in this benchmark. At least it did show an increase, unlike the decrease in BioShock.
