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.
Here we can see at the lower resolution Quake 3 gets a slight increase in performance although it's not something you would notice. Moving to the higher resolutions the game relies on the graphics card more.
