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.

 

 

Another OpenGL game clearly shows how much nVidia dominate this market in this format. All cards bar the GeCube offer a clearly playable experience at the lower resolution, moving to 1600 x 1200 it is clear thought that you're going to want to have a 7300GT under your belt.
