Real-World OpenGL Benchmarks

 

Quake III Arena

 

Quake III 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 range of different products.

 

 

Quake III Arena shows how well the Ti4200 does compared to its predecessor, the Ti500. It also shows just how well it compares to the leader of the pack, the Ti4600.

 

Star Trek Voyager

 

Star Trek Voyager is a real-world OpenGL benchmark. Based on the Quake III Arena engine, this game is a OpenGL master utilizing DirectX 8. We also apply the new Opt3D patch to allow for the use of Hardware T&L's use as well as new optimizations for AMD Athlon XP and Pentium 4 SSE2.

 

 

Based on the Q3 engine, Star Trey Voyager shows the same trends, only with newer driver support and much better graphics.

 

Jedi Knight II

 

Jedi Knight II, Jedi Outcast is a newly released OpenGL game that many have been waiting for. It has much improved graphics over its predecessor. It fully supports advanced shaders as well as very high texture resolutions and effects. There is one demo included in the multi-player section that is good for benchmarking use. In order to enable the benchmarking mode, you have to make a shortcut to the jk2mp.exe program located in the GameData folder of Jedi Knight 2. You have to put the switch "+set sv_cheats1" (no quotes) at the end of the line in the Target Area so that it looks like this: "C:\Star Wars JK II Jedi Outcast\GameData\jk2mp.exe" +set sv_cheats 1. The demo file used is jk2ffa.

 

 

Jedi Knight is a new generation of game so it is fitting we test it on the new generation card. As you can see, the Ti4200 is able to smoke the Ti500 GF3, especially in FSAA operations.
