Gaming Performance - Quake III Arena
An extremely dated benchmark, Quake III Arena has become much more of a CPU and platform test than anything because of the fact that current generation graphics cards are no where near stressed by it. We used our old 1.29f build of the game with the classic demo "four" at High Quality defaults, with everything maxed out at 1024x768.
Bound by no graphics limitations, the very old Quake III Arena engine ends up being a great stress test of FSB bandwidth and platform efficiency - the 800MHz FSB comes in handy here.
