Seems like a useful tutorial. However, I'd recommend against using "renderdemos" (ie, those captured with "recordDemo", and played back with "playTimeDemo" and "playDemo"), since they do not test system performance very well. Stick to "recordNetDemo" and "playNetTimeDemo", as was described at the top of the article.

See http://www.iddevnet.com/quake4/Benchmarking for more detailed information on why this is (from TTimo @ idsoftware).

There are also a couple of other tips in there like remembering to benchmark SMP systems with r_useSMP 1 etc.
