Quake 4

What would a video card review be without the latest game from id Software? Life itself isn't complete unless you play Quake.






This time the tables are turned. Just as you'd expect an ATI card to do better in Source engine games, the same goes for nvidia cards with Quake/Doom engine games (and most other OpenGL games for that matter).

With some tweaking, I think either of these cards could do 1280x1024. We were probably a little hopeful with 4xAA on a $150 card.
