Quake 3 Arena is a real-world OpenGL benchmark that we have been using here at TweakTown for quite a while now because it has proven itself to be one of the best gaming benchmarks around to compare a wide range of different products. Quake 3 Arena is getting very old, but is still one of the best ways of testing video and PC systems for any instability and best performance hence the reason we are still using it today.
At the lower resolution the extremely old Quake 3 shows no difference between the cards until we bump the resolution up to 1600 X 1200 and the optimized OpenGL aspects of the 6600GT card comes out again and shows it face.
