I know, i was just proving my point, even the old video cards are still not yet fully supported for 3D.

yep, i agree, yet this is not the Nouveau forum, and while it's great that ATI provided the docs, and while i would like a similar move from nVidia to help Nouveau, i doubt it you would buy a HD5850 just to have 2D via open-sourced drivers and to wait another month or another 6 months or whatever for some 3D support ( OpenGL 2.1 specs while the card supports the recently released OpenGL 4.1 ) enough to play UT2004 and Q3.
Oh, well it's your money so have fun!

what test case? KDE4 settings? driver settings? pics? screen captures? or you just posted for nothing?
