QIII Arena Benchmarks

Quake III Arena

Source: ID Software

Quake III Arena is a First Person Shooter (FPS) that revolutionized gaming as we know it. Using multiple light sources and having graphics textures that can fill videocards, even after 3 years it's still able to bring a cutting edge system to its knees.

Quake III Arena MAX 1024x768 demo001
Video Card FPS Ranking
1. GeForce2 Ti 125.1
2. GeForce3 Ti500


3. Radeon 64 DDR 84.2
4. ATi Radeon 8500 201.7
5. ATi Radeon 8500 (oc'ed) 205.3

Video Card FPS Ranking
1. GeForce2 Ti 56.6
2. GeForce3 Ti500


3. Radeon 64 DDR 46.3
4. ATi Radeon 8500 60
5. ATi Radeon 8500 (oc'ed) 62.4

The separation with the demo001 demo is much more apparent between the older and newer cards. With the GeForce3 Ti500 and Radeon 8500's we're still CPU limited.

3. Radeon 64 DDR 22.6
4. ATi Radeon 8500 53.5
5. ATi Radeon 8500 (oc'ed) 56.6

Like RTCW, at 1600x1200 the cards are finally starting to be taxed. It's obvious because with the demo001 overclocking the Radeon 8500 brings a 21 fps increase! That's almost 20%!
