The biggest question about this card , is the support in the future, even if like the Programmer have explain to us, the next revision of open GL will be the same for every graphics cards companies (no specific extensions , for ATI or nVidia). Unfortunetaly, there is no radeon 8500 in France, i must play with my geforce 2 mx, and play at 800*600 high qualities in quake 3 for mac os X (1,31 b3 version) Sign In or Register to comment.
