Apple to be at QuakeCon
9:39 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
In an interesting move, Apple has announced its intention to be present at the upcoming fragfest QuakeCon 2001. Being held in Mesquite, TX, this event is a huge Quake tournament officially sponsored by Id Software and promises to be one of the largest of its kind.
Apple certainly means to make its presence known there. They will be running Quake III Team Arena under OS X under their new monster dual 800 G4s equipped with GeForce 3 cards. The machines will be available for both open and tournament play.

This is certainly a gratifying move for Mac gamers everywhere, and is sure to stir even more interest, and hopefully a little respect, in the Mac gaming community in general. Considering that the latest Q3A benchmarks (seen on several Mac hardware sites) are rapidly gaining ground and can now compete with a 1.3 GHz Pentium 4, the presence of the Mac hardware on the gaming floor is certain to erase some preconceived notions about Mac game performance.
