X2: The Threat

X2 is a gorgeous looking space sim game. While the game was just officially launched a while ago, this rolling demo benchmark has been around for a while. It's the same basic engine though, so we'll stick with it for the time being.

Both 5950U's pull way ahead of the 9800XT, especially the 2004 GT. 15% is quite a lead!

Things are even more pronounced when the resolution is increased; this time the 2004 GT is ahead of the 9800XT by the same 10 FPS margin, but this time it's a 25% difference!

Even with good filtering performance, the 9800XT is still behind both 5950U's.
