X3: Terran Conflict Rolling Demo

A rolling demo for X3: Terran Conflict is now available, offering a look at the latest installment in EGOSOFT's space combat series. This should not be confused with a playable demo, as a rolling demo is non-interactive, offering the chance to see what the game looks like using the actual game engine. As such this rolling demo can also benchmark your system to show how it can handle running the game. The 422 MB download is available on AtomicGamer, ComputerGames.ro, FanGaming, FileFront, Gamer's Hell, and Strategy Informer. X3: Terran Conflict was released a couple of weeks ago, and can be purchased through Steam.

Framerates

Scene "Trade" 29.3 average fps 8.0 minimum fps 68.0 maximum fps
Scene "Fight" 64.3 average fps 23.0 minimum fps 155.0 maximum fps

Overall average framerate: 52.4 fps

I must admit I was expecting slightly better results... Not that 52.4fps is "bad", but I did expect the 4870 to be significantly better than the 8800. Wonder if it's poor ATI drivers, or something else?
