Game tests are cool and always look good as well so we threw in one from each arena. The UT2003 tests are based on testing in the Direct-3D environment, while Quake 3 has become the so called Holy Grail of Open-GL game testing. Quake has held its own as a testing method for longer than any other game to date. Hats off to John Carmack, who probably never anticipated his game would become a standard for VGA testing and has had a very long life span. The AMD chips, both the 3200+ and 3400+ performed ahead of the Intel P4 across the board in this arena showing AMD's increased appeal to the gamer.
