AMDZone has added to their exclusive benchmarks of their own custom 16 player Quake 4 deathmatch demo to include GeForce 6800GT, 7800GT, and 7800GTX performance numbers. They test with high quality AA off and 4XAA and include some SLI 7800GT numbers.
We have been Quake players since the first test came out, and it has been too long since Quake 3. While we have played just a few hours of Quake 4 multiplayer it is too early to comment on too much. While the DM17 conversion is not to our liking game play seems OK so far, but we have yet to get into a zone with the rail gun likely because our settings still need to be tweaked. While Quake 4 unlike Quake 3 includes a true single player experience today we focus on multiplayer performance. Our first tests were run on the following hardware.
