SMP Performance for Quake 4 Reviewed
8:11 AM | Evan Holt | Comment on this story

Bare Feats has benchmarked the latest Intel Macs and a G5 to see how much of a difference the new Quake 4 SMP Patch makes. This was a patch to allow Quake 4 to be aware of multiple processors and therefore take advantage of them.

The Intel Macs outperformed the G5/2.0 Power Mac with the Radeon X800 XT when Low and Medium settings were used. However, when we bumped things up to High quality with Shadows ON and SMP ON, they not only fell behind the G5 tower but they failed to benefit from SMP mode.
Follow the link below to read the full benchmark from Bare Feats.
