View Full Version : Geforce 8800GTX Performance

Hi, I am new and please forgive my English.

I just bought and installed the EVGA Geforce 8800GTX 768MB graphic card and try to increase the modeling performane . With my previous Radeon 1600XT XGE 512MB card, the perspective viewport will become very sluggish when I try to move around or rotate the objects in "high" polygon counts(poly count: 248900 ). That's why I get this new card and hopefully this problem can be solved.

But I don't see any improvement after installing the card, actually the performance even go down a little bit in WinXP 64.

My question is what component in computer will affect the polygon moving/refreshing performance ? I read some posts on the board says that LW9 cannot take advantage of (graphic card) hardware OpenGL acceleration , is this the reason I cannot get a faster polygons refresh rate ?

Any input is very welcome and thanks in advance !

My computer spec:

WinXP 64
ASUS P5B Deluxe MB
Intel QX6700 QUAD CPU
4G RAM (DDR2 667)
8800GTX 768MB graphic card.

I have an EVGA 8800GTX card too, as Neverko has said, major OpenGL performance enhancements have been made in 9.2, but not 9.0.

Having said that, there are currently some OpenGL issues that need resolving before 9.2 goes Gold.

Thank you very much guys and I will try the v9.2 later to see if it helps. :thumbsup:
