Benchmarks: Quake 4, Battlefield 2

Quake 4

Source: id Software

Quake 4 is the latest shooter from ID and is based on the Doom 3 engine. Tweaked to for more eye candy, Quake 4 promises to be tougher on videocards and systems than its predecessor was. Quake 4 also does not have a 60 fps limiter like Doom 3, with the Ultra setting, graphic textures can surpass the 500MB mark!

Quake 4
LQ 640x480 Custom Demo FPS Ranking
2x 512MB Patriot PEP5125600ELK PC5600 (200/400) 136
2x 512MB Centon GEMiNi PC3200 (200/400) 135.7
2x 1024MB OCZ PC4000 Gold (200/400) 135.8
2x 1024MB Corsair TwinX2048-4400 Pro (200/400) 134.6
2x 1024MB Corsair TwinX2048-4000PT (200/400) 130.5
2x 1024MB Patriot PDC2G4000ELK (200/400) 132
2x 1024MB Patriot PDC2G4000ELK (276/552) 142.4

Things are very close in Quake 4 between all modules. The Patriot PDC2G4000ELK performs quite well. Overclocking boosts the overall framerate nicely even though the processor is clocked at a similar speed.

Battlefield 2

In Battlefield 2, players will choose to fight for one of three military superpowers: the United States, the Chinese, or the newly formed Middle East Coalition. Armed with the latest modern weaponry, players can take control of any of the games 30+ vehicles to engage in major conflicts with over 64 players in some of the largest online battles on the PC. Test is run five times, which will then be averaged with the highest and lowest runs disregarded, settings are high quality at 1024x768.

Battlefield 2
HQ 1024x768: FPS Ranking
2x 512MB Patriot PEP5125600ELK PC5600 (200/400) 190.94
2x 512MB Centon GEMiNi PC3200 (200/400) 192.11
2x 1024MB OCZ PC4000 Gold (200/400) 314.55

2x 1024MB Patriot PDC2G4000ELK (276/552) 358.41

In the last benchmark of the day, it's obvious that there is a difference between 1GB and 2GB of installed system memory. The Patriot Memory PDC2G4000ELK modules perform very well in Battlefield 2, this game really does require at lest 2GB installed RAM.
