Thread: G400Max & QuakeIII Performance

    Post G400Max & QuakeIII Performance

    I would like to get some feed back on the performance of QuakeIII using G400. I don't think I'm getting the maximum thruput from this card despite having the latest driver installed:5.41 including the latest turbogl.
    MY System
    500III O'C 585
    256MB system memory
    MX300 Sound card

    Timedemo 1 demo dem001= 30FPS
    Graphics settings: 1024*768 details set to medium.

    You're slow. I got the following numbers running texture quality mid-way, and bilinear filtering:
    35.3 FPS w/ 1024x768x32
    45.8 FPS w/ 1024x768x16

    w/ max texture quality and trilinear filtering:
    23.2 FPS w/ 1024x768x32
    33.2 FPS w/ 1024x768x16

    I've seen even higher PIII/450 numbers.
    I delete my .cfg file before running the benchmark (resets to default), turn off sound and vsynch.

    I posted free advice on this board but people dont seem to care.I dont think 92.4 FPS in 800x600 16bit is too shabby.

    Thanks acs48, I'll try that for speeding up my on-line play. I use DSL for most things but I'm behind a firewall so I have to get fragged over my 56K modem.
    The numbers I were reporting are based on a standard way of benchmarking Quake games (tish beta2 proposed this.).
