And that's not even the SM3 enabled Far Cry. I've noticed a rather significant performance and IQ gain from my 6800u from my former fx5900u@5950bios. Especially in High Resolution AA/AF performance in Far Cry.
Doom3 and IL-2 FB are a couple of Glide games we play.
When we compared FarCry,using the same graphic settings, the 6800u would be faster in some scenes and the 5950u would be faster in others. Bear in mind though my son has the FX-51 proc., compared to a 3200+ barton.

Hehe. Didn't know Doom3 used glide. Maybe I'll try running it on my Voodoo 5 then.

Processor speed makes a difference in a game like Far Cry. But so does the video card.

I agree, about the processor/vid card part anyway.

Hehe. I was joking with you. OpenGL is probably what you were talking about, but you said Glide instead. 3dfx glide was a proprietary 3d API designed specifically for the long dead Voodoo line of video cards.

I tried the 66.81 drivers but they didnt make any difference. The IQ is better in far cry tho!!

I havnt got any white lines in CS:S so i'll stick with these drivers as they arnt causing any problems. YET!

Im gonna try enabling SM3.0 in far cry. Where can i get the 1.2 patch from???

Cheers
