3D Performance: Quake 4
Quake 4 is very heavy game that uses the same engine of Doom 3. We used the id_demo001 available on version 1.2 of Quake 4 to make our benchmarking with this game. We run this demo four times at 1024x768x32 resolution and image quality settings on “low”. The results shown on the chart is an arithmetic average of the collected data. The results are in frames per second. For more information on how to use Quake 4 to benchmark a PC, read our tutorial on this subject.
On Quake 4 the on-board video provided by Radeon Xpress 1100 was one more time faster than GeForce 6100-405, this time by 17.69%. GeForce 6100-405 was again beaten by the two low-end PCI Express video cards we installed: GeForce 6200 TC (64 MB, 64-bit) was 170.31% faster and GeForce 6200 (128 MB, 128-bit) was 440.92% faster than the on-board video of the reviewed motherboard.
When we installed a GeForce 7800 GTX on the reviewed card it didn’t achieve the same performance level of an ASUS M2N32-SLI De Luxe with the same video card installed: the motherboard from ASUS was 11.59% faster.
