Conclusion

   Now is a great classic: the Quake III Arena benchmark. Quake III is a famous OpenGL game that intensively uses the GPU as well as the CPU of the computer. The results below speak for themselves!

 

 

 

With Quake III Arena, the GeForce 4 Ti 4600 is obviously ahead of the race since it offers the highest framerate. The gap between the GeForce 4 Ti 4600 and other cards becomes really significant in high resolutions. In 1280*1024*32, the GeForce 4 Ti 4600 is 20% faster than the GeForce 3 Ti 500.

Then again, with the 2x antialiasing mode the GeForce 4 Ti 4600 outclasses every other cards. In 1280*1024*32, the GeForce 4 Ti 4600 gets the awesome framerate of 134.8fps: it's 82% faster than the GeForce 3 Ti 500. The ATI Radeon 8500 clearly lags behind NVIDIA cards in almost every resolutions.

Testing Quake III Arena in FSAA 4x highlights the fact the GeForce 4 Ti 4600 is the card for those who want to experience high quality graphics with a high frame rate! Note that in FSAA 4x, the ATI Radeon 8500 cannot render scenes in 1280*1024. In 1280*1024*32 the GeForce 4 Ti 4600 is 50% faster than the GeForce 3 Ti 500.

With Quicunx enabled, there's a massive gap between the GeForce 4 Ti 4600 and the GeForce 3 Ti 500. In 1280*1024*32 the GeForce 4 Ti 4600 is 120% faster than the GeForce 3 Ti 500! All those benchmarks have demonstrated the ability of the GeForce 4 Ti 4600 to render complex 3D scenes with an extraordinary fluidity when using antialiasing modes to enhance the visual quality of the graphics. The GeForce 4 Ti 4600 is simply the most powerful 3D graphics card available on the market, today.
