    Here is what my iMac 24" (256 7600gt) 2gb ram clocked on Doom3 in 10.4.7:

    1600 x 1200 - high quality everything on, 54.2fps
    1024 x 768 - ultra quality everything on, 50.9fps
    800 x 600 - medium quality everything on, 65.3fps
    1920 x 1200 - 44.7fps

    Here is what is clocked after the 10.4.8 update (with openGL improvements):

    1600 x 1200 - high quality everything on, 94.5fps
    1024 x 768 - ultra quality everything on, 50.6fps
    800 x 600 - medium quality everything on, 99.5fps
    1920 x 1200 - 49.5fps

    Some improvements generally (except with ultra on with the 1024 x 768 test) but nearly topped a hundred in the 800 x 600 test, with a slight improvement at 1920 x 1200 (thats what im interested in baby)

    its not totally scientific benchmarks but i hope its interesting to some.

    The above games are Universal Binaries, and he said he ran them in 10.4.7/8, esp for comparison purposes, you cannot run HL2/CS:S in OSX...

    Nice benchmarks speakerwizard. :)


    Except it is a bit more graphics intensive (slightly more modern game, but as you said, built on the Doom 3 engine). :)

    Yes it's the same engine, but I read a review yesterday that said quake4 unleashed some tricks that they didn't show off in Doom3. Doom3 ran fine on my windows box, but quake4 crawled.
