Details of the test system used for this review is listed below. This is always a common question from readers. Two new features to note with X XT are a new texture-compression technology called 3Dc, which improves the image quality of surface details, and temporal antialiasing, a new strategy for improving overall image smoothness with less of a performance drain.

Testing with Far Cry at the highest detail settings, the X XT was able to display roughly 40 percent more frames per second than the Ultra. R was unable to reach high clock zti, having been designed to reduce the cost per GPU, creating s800 need for new top-of-the-line core.
