Pure 32-Bit Benchmarks: Quake 4, FarCry

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!

We see the same picture in Quake 4, the budget AMD Sempron 3600+ processor does not have enough power to keep up with the higher end processors.... but framerates are still pretty good all things considered.

FarCry Source: Ubisoft

Real-time editing, bump mapping, static lights, network system, integrated physics system, shaders, shadows, and a dynamic music system are just some of the state of-the-art features that the CryENGINE offers. The game was set to Ultra quality and the Ubisoft's Regulator and Training demos were run.

AMD Sempron 3600+ 66.02
AMD Sempron 3600+ (2.5 GHz) 70.32

At high resolutions the 2.0GHz Sempron 3600+ struggles with framerates, in this application the Sempron 3600+ might not be enough for high end gaming.
