Quake 4 is one of the latest new games to be added to our benchmark suite. It is based off the popular Doom 3 engine and as a result uses many of the features seen in Doom. However, Quake 4 graphics are more intensive than Doom 3 and should put more strain on different parts of the system.
For some reason the new drivers caused artifacts in Quake 4 for the X700PRO for us. Using the same engine as Doom 3 we expected similar performance increases but only the decrease at the higher resolution on the X850XT carries over.
