Released yesterday afternoon was the Quake 4 v1.1 point
release patch. Among appending four new maps for professional game-play,
there is also a new Forcemodel option as well as Brightskins. Another
major feature to come down the pipeline in Quake 4 v1.1 is
Hyper-Threading Technology and dual-core support, however, that is
presently limited to the Windows version. At Phoronix, we have analyzed
the performance abilities of this latest Quake 4 point release under
Linux with a Pentium D processor and GeForce 7 solution.
