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.




Quake 3 Arena can even be a bit of overkill on a cheap Radeon 9250 graphics cards so we didn't expect these cards to struggle one little bit. At the lower resolution the 9600 XT takes the win but as we increase the resolution the 9800 PE just takes back the lead. Even using such an old game as Quake 3 Arena, the more expensive cards are still able to show their worth.
