Quake Wars is the only test in our review to use OpenGL. The engine has MegaTexture technology which allows Splash Damage to create some nice outdoor environments with the Doom3 engine. Testing was performed at 1920×1200 with no anti-aliasing and 16x anisotropic filtering. All game options were set to their highest level.
 
Whereas the last few tests have shown the 3850 to perform at a lower level than the 8800 GS Quake Wars results show the two cards performing at near identical levels. At our chosen settings there would be no discernable difference when playing on either card which is good for both camps. The most interesting factor here is that this is the first test we have run which does not use anti-aliasing and so we will see if this trend of equal performance continues later in the article as we switch between AA on and off.
