The Tom's Hardware Guide Power Box

3D Gaming - Quake 3 Arena

The Pentium 4 is known to score particularly well in Quake 3 Arena's Demo001-run. Still the Power Box is able to beat it.

At higher resolution and true-color, which represents a more realistic setting for the end-user, the difference between the three systems is negligible. The reason for this behavior is the fact that here the 3D-card is actually limiting the scores. GeForce2 Ultra is not able to score more than about 130 frames per second in this benchmark, regardless what processor is being used.
