Quake IV packshot image
In a desperate war for Earth's survival against an unrelenting alien enemy, the only way to defeat them is to become one of them. Earth is under siege by the Strogg, a barbaric alien race moving through the universe consuming, recycling and annihilating any civilization in their path. In a desperate attempt to survive, an armada of Earth's finest warriors is sent to take the battle to the Strogg home planet. You are Matthew Kane, an elite member of Rhino Squad and Earth's valiant invasion force. Fight alone, with your squad, or in hover tanks and mechanized walkers as you engage in a heroic mission to the heart of the Strogg war machine. Battle through early missions as a deadly marine, then after your capture, as a marine-turned-Strogg with enhanced abilities and the power to turn the tide of the war.

Quake IV

Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 16GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 16GB Performance Review

Playing Quake IV on the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 16GB, which is a 3 year old graphics card will likely return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. Those frames are achieved on Quake IV when being played at 1920x1080 screen resolution and on High graphics.

Playing Quake IV on Ultra 4k is certainly possible with this graphics card and we expect it will return around 200+ frames per second at that top scale resolution.

Finding a PC with this gpu or better would return some strong FPS in Quake IV. We would definitely recommend running at 4K screen res and on ultra, before trying any lower screen resolution. You would also need at least 0.512GB of RAM.

To summarise, with this graphics card you do not need concern yourself too much regarding Quake IV frame rates. Because Ultra graphics setting can be turned on across all resolutions up to 4K quite comfortably.We are seeing 4K getting 200+ FPS, 1440p will get 200+ frame rate and if you are interested then 1080p gaming can get 200+ FPS. Based around the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 16GB launch price, we calculate the cost per frame at different resolutions. 1080p Ultra frames will cost $0.25, 1440p frames cost $0.32 each and then the 4K costs $0.54 per frame.
