Doom3 Linux and Windows Battlegrounds
 
Doom3 was a turning point for a lot of us as it marked an important milestone in next generation game engines. We have been keeping a very close eye on id's Linux adventure, and at the core of id's Linux development is Timothee Besset, the Linux port maintainer.


"I'm getting surprisingly good performance compared to the Windows version."

Timothee Besset, Linuxgames.com [1]

This sounds like the premise of a wonderful opportunity to put Doom3 through its paces. We crafted this entire analysis around Timothee's expectations.

Our goals for this analysis are twofold. We want to take the newest working video cards that we can find and test their performance on Linux using Doom3. This is slightly a continuation of last week's GPU roundup as the Doom3 engine will ultimately become the next cornerstone for Linux first-person shooter games. This includes exhaustive image quality (IQ) testing. Secondly, we wish to run comparative analysis on how Doom3 performs and looks on Linux versus Windows.
