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.

Doom 3 framerates are very interesting. The lack of memory bandwidth at high speeds rears its head at high resolutions. At lower resolutions, the MSI NX8600GTS-T2D256E-OC impresses us for how well it kept up with higher end videocards.

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.
