X2 Beta Performance

January 2nd, 2006 by Crusader

The hardware review site Phoronix sent in the following:

On December 31 of 2005, the folks at Linux Game Publishing entered their X2: The Threat Linux port into its closed BETA session for accepted applicants. For getting a better understanding of what this game will require, once it reaches the retail sector, Phoronix has posted some benchmarks using the first X2 v1.4 Linux BETA 1. The cards used are an FX 5200, 6600GT, 6800GT, and a 7800GTX. It is reported, however, that there are some memory leaks and other problems plauging the performance. The article can be read here.

    I still don’t see the point in benchmarking a beta version

    I always get worried about things which plauge the performance, even in a beta.

    This beta is only a test build. The developer has said in the beta mail list that there are known issues with font drawing etc… that are slowing the performance down. I think this is not really indicative of final performance, but a starting indicator. It’ll only get better.

    Oh dear. They’re porting X2. When I was shopping two days ago, I held a box of X3 in my hands.

    I, for one, will continue to support companies like Introversion, who release current titles on Linux, usually simultaneously with the windos and Mac releases.

    The X2 perfomance in Beta4 is great, and a whole lot of issues have been solved. I’m no expert, but maybe another Beta or two and it’ll be ready for release!
