Quake 3 Arena

Quake3 Arena only uses OpenGL. The first person shooter is characterized by a large number of polygons and complex scenarios. Since many games are based on the Quake III engine, the tests with Quake III are very practical. In addition to the demo 001 already contained in Quake 1.17, we also used the NV15 demo from nVidia, which loads the processor to the utmost.The tests were carried out with both the normal config and a custom config (16 bit, low texture details, high geometic detail).

The first non-synthetic test in our test series is, as usual with us, Quake 3 Arena. The results speak clearly for the performance of the Pentium 4 with Rambus. A good 40 frames separate the two fast processors in low resolutions. The winner in this test is clearly called Pentium 4.
