Advanced Videocard Benchmarks: Quake 4, FEAR

ID Software Quake 4 1.3 - AA/AF Tests

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 video cards 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.

We found a strange discrepancy when running at 8xAA on our Diamond HD 3650 PE 512 while using our catalyst 8.3 drivers - other combinations of AA and AF worked normally, so this particular error was fairly easy to work around.

Sierra FEAR 1.08 - AA/AF Tests

FEAR is Sierra's latest first person shooter which relies heavily on DirectX 9 features. With its "Soft Shadows" feature enabled, even the fastest video cards run at a crawl.

Like many low-end video cards, the Diamond Radeon HD 3650 simply can't run FEAR with anti-aliasing turned on and get acceptable frame rates.
