X2 The Threat + ATI X1000
Written by Michael Larabel in Gaming on 12 April 2006 at 01:00 AM EDT. Add A Comment

On top of our ATI Radeon X1000 benchmarks we also have up today a few X2 The Threat benchmarks. For those not staying up to date with the X2 The Threat happenings, the Beta 8 candidate is the most recent release to the closed testing community -- and it will likely be the version that goes gold. While the game is not yet available to the general population, we have completed a few in-house tests with this Linux-native game and the ATI Radeon X1000 series. The 8.24.8 display drivers were used, which were just released about an hour ago, and the system specifications were the same as what we had presented with our ATI Radeon X1800 Linux Preview. While Linux Game Publishing doesn't have a large emphasis on ATI Linux, the benchmark with these new drivers and Radeon parts seemed to create no apparent troubles when using the Beta 8 release. Below are our findings.
