Quake 4 & X3: Reunion
ID Software; Quake 4 v1.2
ID Software?s QUAKE 4, developed by Raven Software, takes players into an epic invasion on a barbaric alien planet in one of the most anticipated first person shooters for 2005. Even today in 2006 Quake 4 is played by professional gamers around the world in the famed World Series of Video Games (WSVG) and still one of the most played first person shooters on the market today.
In our first test Quad SLI jumps out to a slight lead over the rest of the field. The extra power the 4 GPU’s seems to agree with Quake 4.
Egosoft: X³ Reunion
The Sequel to the award winning X²: 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 strangely enough still favors ATI’s video cards. The 8800 GTX is not really any faster than the 7900 GTX SLI. We ran the test several times and the outcome was the same on each.
