Benchmarks: Doom 3, Quake 4

Doom 3 Source: id Software

Doom 3 at its highest setting, Ultra quality, texture sizes pass the 500MB mark which means even tomorrow's videocards will have a hard time running everything. The frame rates in the game itself are locked at 60 fps so anything above that point is wasted. Each test is run three times with the third run being recorded.

The Foxconn 975X7AB-8EKRS2H does very well in the Doom 3 tests, again battling it out for top spot. You can definitely build a very capable office or gaming system from the Intel 975X Express chipset. The AMD based systems in this gaming benchmark aren't holding up too well, but the Intel Pentium D processor is even worse off!

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! Each test is run three times and with the third run being recorded.
