Videocard Benchmarks: Doom 3, Quake 4

ID Software Doom 3 1.3

Source: id Software

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 and with the third run being recorded.

At the High Quality setting with a resolution of 1024x768 the PowerColor X1550 512 MB framerate is low. Anything higher though.... and well, you know the story.

ID Software Quake 4 1.3

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.

Framerates at 1024x768 are pretty good even with high detailed enabled. It's impressive to see the PowerColor X1550 512MB perform relatively well in Quake 4.
