I recently got a new computer. It is intended to be an upgrade from my old G5 which specs out as Dual 2.7ghz G5, 2gb RAM, ATI X800. My new computer is a Dual 3.0ghz Quad Core Mac Pro with 16gb of RAM and the ATI X1900 graphics card. In just about everything so far, the new computer is much faster. Interestingly enough, I opened the same LW scene on both computers but on the older computer, the open gl response is much better. Why would this be? I would think the new computer with the faster card should be better. I'm confused. This only seems to be the case in LW9 because when I try out some vid games on both computers, the new computer is clearly faster. Strange....

Is that the universal binary, or the CFM?

Is there a 9.0 universal binary?? If so I'll definitely download it. Right now when I got to the download section after logging in, it only shows a 9.2 beta version that is available as universal binary.
