id Software just released a new beta patch for their latest game Quake 4. It improves performance for multiprocessor machines be it HyperThreading, dual CPUs or dual cores.

id Software and Raven have worked with Intel to dramatically improve QUAKE 4 performance on systems with HT Technology, multiple processors, or dual core processors. Players who have a system with one of these configurations will notice performance gains in QUAKE 4 of anywhere from 25% - 87% depending on processor type.
Here are a few download sources:
