Benchmarks: Quake 4

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!

As with Doom 3, the S3 Chrome S27 videocard can dish out adequate framerates at 1024x768 when running in high quality mode. Rather impressive considering S3 is not well known for its 3D performance.
