Performance in Simulators
Radeon X1000 family cards do not support vertex texturing, so they cannot use Shader Model 3.0 to render the water surface with the highest quality in this game. This is only possible on Nvidia’s GeForce 7 cards.
The GeForce 7900 GTX is surprisingly slow if compared with itself in the Quality mode, but the EN7950GX2 is, on the contrary, a little faster, nearly reaching 85fps. This is good news for all the virtual pilots who run this game on a GeForce 7950 GX2.
The GeForce 7950 GX2 used to compete with the Radeon X1950 XTX in 1600x1200 and higher resolutions before, but now it can do so in 1920x1200 only. From a gamer’s point of view, the EN7950GX2 and the Radeon X1950 XTX are equally well suited for space flights in X3 , but the latter provides a bigger reserve of speed in low resolutions.
