Aspyr Media, Inc. has released a free update for QUAKE 4™, which updates any previous version of QUAKE 4 to version 1.2 (Universal).
This official update addresses issues found in both multiplayer and single player since the release of the game, and includes several new multiplayer maps. In addition to the changes and fixes outlined below, this update enables QUAKE 4 to take advantage of the SMP of Intel® Dual Core Processors. Players who have computer systems with this processor will notice significant performance gains in QUAKE 4.
With the update, Macintosh systems with an Intel Dual Core processor, which uses the SMP, will have a performance jump of 15 to 30 percent.
In short, systems with this technology will see the game run faster and smoother than before.
As with any new technology, SMP is reliant upon several components working in unison. Such components include the motherboard, CPU, GPU, system ram and sound card.
