Default Re: 8400M GS : Low performences

Code:
The gf8400m GS is just slow.
I have couple of words about this part...
But please keep in mind that at this point this is just to THINK from end-user point of view...

So back in a days when 3D started, amongst cards I had, was Voodoo Banshee, basically slower V2 with 2D.
Guess what, I played Forsaken, Quake2/3, Max Payne and really, it was not bad. Quake/MaxPayne had it's explosions, blood etc. going around which can be compared to "fire" in compiz for instance, then in forsaken there was that big bomb which created semi transparent explosion wave which can be compared to compiz "cube" thing...

That was what? Year 1999? Yes, it was when we were running on 100Mhz core and 133Mhz SDR 16Mb memory, P200MMX with 32Mb of memory and Windows98...

And 2D was good too, I don't really remember slowdowns, actually...

So now we are complaining that this is bad and that is bad with recent cards that has features, clock speeds, memory etc., basically n times powerful!

Think...

P.S. Yes, I know that now we have antialiased text and Quake is not quite directly comparable to compiz
