The Sequel to the award winning X3: The Threat will introduce a new 3D engine as well as a new story, new ships and a new gameplay to greatly increase the variety in the X-universe. The economy of X3: Reunion will be more complex than anything seen in the X-universe before. Factories are being built by NPCs, wars can affect the global economy, NPCs can trade freely and pirates will behave far more realistically. Extensive development has gone into the X3 engine, making full use of DirectX 9 technology, to create dramatic visual effects and stunningly realistic starships. Coupled with the massively enhanced A.L. (Artificial Life) system, X3: REUNION will present players with an ever changing, evolving universe; where a player actions really can shape the future of the universe.
X3 doesn’t seem to mind what board your using at 1024×768 with a total spread of 4fps between all of our settings.
Setting up a video card limited situation we see only a 2fps difference from the fastest result to the slowest. Considering what we saw in 3DMark06 this is an impressive performance by the ASRock motherboard.
