Have a look at these examples:
I'm getting the same results with my "graphics-workstation" at work (P4 2.2, Quadro 4) as with my Notebook (Athlon XP 2000, Gefore Go32). Which is about the same as an Athlon 850 with Matrox G400!
Softwarerendering with my "workstation" gives me 250-300 FPS (Hardware is only 3-4 times faster!)
