As it should be, as it is supposedly lower speed (250 vs 400). I'm just saying that in my tests so far, Double-X seems to be grainy, whatever I'm doing wrong without trying... so I bet if one were to try, one could get some pretty amazing grain out of the stuff. See the restroom assault scene near the beginning of Casino Royale (2006) for an example of extreme Double-X grain. I suspect they pushed the heck out of it, because it got pretty contrasty too.
