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 results are very interesting because the nVidia G84 core apparently runs into a bandwidth bottleneck. Even though the core is heavily overclocked, the framerates don't increase by much at higher resolutions.

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.

Even at stock speeds the Albatron 8600GT-256 videocard performs pretty well; certainly the scores here are quite nice for a videocard that's priced at $150 CDN.
