Regular readers of Go2Mac will remember that we posted PowerBook G4 Quake III Arena benchmarks on 03 February 2001:

  16-bit color 32-bit color
800×600 29 fps 18.1 fps
1024×768 20.4 fps N/A

Since everyone is nuts for Quake III Arena benchmarks, we’ve got ‘em. The following benchmarks are from a PowerBook G4 Titanium 400 MHz with 512 MB RAM and Mac OS 9.1. Thanks to ZoInKs @ bartsource for the juice.
