X2: The Threat

Today we'll introduce this benchmark into our suite of video tests. This is actually a rolling demo, not a 100% gameplay demo. So until we find a better DX9 based benchmark, we'll use X2 for a while.

Same old story here; the 9600XT falls behind both NVIDIA powered cards in 1024x768. Again, the 5900XT pulls way ahead.

Even more of a difference in high resolution...

Once again, we are seeing strong filtering performance allowing the Bravo to pull within the 5700 Ultra. Unfortunately, it is no longer competing with that card, and doesnt' stand a chance against the 5900XT.
