Quake 4 is a popular first person shooter that lets gamers fight in space. The Hardware OC Quake 4 Benchmark Utility version 1.5 is what we'll be using to complete the testing of this game. To get Quake 4 to work correctly, you'll need to update to the most current version for the latest bug fixes. Average frames per second is what we'll be recording at three different resolutions.
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
After we tried multiple different combinations of drivers and settings on the AMD board to get Quake 4 to run with the onboard ATI graphics, we received errors of incompatibility. The G33T-M2 got the exact same error and if you choose to play Quake 4 with the board, you cannot install any patches past 1.3. Any higher of a patch will cause an initialization error, which means that the onboard graphics or driver combination will not work with this setup. A new driver update could possibly fix this issue.
