Keen to get your mits on the new blockbuster hit "Quake 4" but a little concerned about whether or not your hardware specs are up to scratch for the task? Well then, you might want to head over to Hardware Zone where they have a dedicated article up researching the performance characteristics of the game in various conditions, as well as some other brief info and eye-candy.

A nice and informative readup all-round!

Quite a number of us have been nonchalant that the next installment of the highly successful Quake first person shooter game, would only be in stores either during Christmas this year or next year seeing that Doom 3 only made it out August last year. So what's the connection with Doom 3 and the new Quake 4 you ask? Well, both games are by the same developers, id Software, so it's only natural for the uninformed to assume that it would be a while longer till one can lay their hands on the continuation of the classic. However, both games utilize the same game engine (albeit updated for the new Quake) that id software toiled to recreate the nightmare Doom 3 masterpiece last year (environmentally speaking), and this is the very reason why Quake 4 was developed much faster than anticipated and it's here today!
