For two days, I've been trying to determine why my ATI Radeon X850 XT has been limited to 16 bit OpenGL display in the FPrime 3.01 preview window on Windows XP SP2. Knowing that my graphics hardware is capable of 32 bit OpenGL, I finally made an educated guess that the Catalyst A.I. algorithm was probably emphasizing OpenGL performance over quality, so I turned it off... and voila! The FPrime 3.01 preview window is now displaying 32 bit OpenGL.

To observe the difference, view...

'Hope this helps.
