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.

    Umm...right whatever, at least we can spend $2000 and get a powerful monster where as you get a let me see...133Mhz G3?! (OK, that's pushing it but you get the idea.) Besides, I might get a 3.0C Pentium-IV! BUAHAHHAH! Reply

    Umm, make that the APPLE Powermac G5, and it's not 800MHz, it's 1GHz!

    You pee cee people crack me up. Enjoy your little kids toys!
