X3 Reunion Demo Explored

Anandtech has published a brief overview of the new X3 Reunion demo which will likely become a widely used benchmarking tool. The team tests the demo on a wide variety of processors and GPU's to help illustrate how demanding this new demo truly is. Although a GeForce 7800 GTX 512MB was included, it would have been interesting to see how the X1900XTX would have fared.

We found that the X3 rolling demo makes a good benchmark due to its excellent graphics. The benchmark is fairly long and covers many different aspects of the game like fighting and building complex structures. In addition to being able to adjust standard settings like resolution and AA/AF, there are high, medium and low options for both shader and texture quality.
