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
Quake 4 actually hammered the 8600GT harder than BioShock did. While 30fps is playable at 1024x768, the rest are a no go. The card can do better if the video quality settings are lowered though.
