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
I tried many different combinations of drivers and settings to get Quake 4 to run with the onboard ATI graphics boards and all I received were errors of incompatibility. If you choose to play Quake 4 with this board, you cannot install any patches past 1.3. The higher patches will cause an initialization error, which suggests that the graphics board or driver combination will not work with this setup. A driver update will possibly fix this matter.
