VGA Charts VIII: PCI Express Winter 2005

Quake 4

Quake 4 is replacing Doom 3 in our benchmark suite. This first-person shooter makes extensive use of dark levels with shadows and bleak lighting. As was to be expected, the newer graphics chipsets achieve very good results across the board. The older generation, on the other hand, was brought to its knees when the Ultra-Quality setting and quality-enhancing filters were enabled. Once again, ASUS GeForce 7800 GTX Extreme came out as the winner with this game.
