Ahh good old quake, gives me memories! Shame ID have fallen from being a company that were pushing the boundaries to making mainstream crap for low-mid hardware.

Rage has an awesome engine that pushed many boundaries for texture utilization. Well that is now that the kinks are worked out. (=

I don't think Quake is compatible with Windows 65 :)

It pushes one boundary and its more of a storage-gpu latency boundary push than anything else. A modern computer hardly struggles with the title, just that latency that causes most issues with it.

Sparse Voxel Octree that is stream read and id is currently working on it could be a major step however but its far off. Should be interesting to see what they can get out of that tech.

Voxels suck at non-orthogonal walls. If you want angles, you're gonna need polygons or similar.
