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.

 

 

Doom 3 and Quake 4 being so similar see almost the same results, with about 20% of an increase at the lower resolutions but closer to 15% at the higher but this is probably just enough to make that higher resolution more playable.
