Default Re: well, new ATI driver release, and I got exactly what I expected

To be perfectly honest, Quake3 games seem to run quite respectably in Linux. I think the limitations there are more compiler related than driver. But as you get into more modern engines like UT's, and trying out newer technologies you see that ATI is crippled for things like lacking support for certain extensions, namely VBO's and PBO's. In games like Savage, you really see the hit there. It'd be nice if ATI would branch out some more and support more extensions in Linux, then I think you'd see some admirable results.
