    Radeon Dawning

    When I first saw Nvidia’s new GeForce FX Dawn demo I was quite impressed. ATI’s demos done by Alex and the ATI Research crew are of course impressive as well, but the Dawn demo had a certain appeal. Maybe it was the human form, life-like facial expressions, realistic skins tones and texture, or most likely the sexual appeal. So it was disappointing to find out that this magnificent demo would not be able to run on ATI’s DX9 graphic cards. Luckily a group of MIT engineering students were disappointed by the same thing (also rumoured that they were unhappy with Nvidia's image quality and performance) and were up to the task of making it work on ATI hardware (and the brains!). The end result was an opengl wrapper that made the demo run smoothly on ATI hardware. Most impressive!

    I just watched that demo...quite nice (but wasn´t anything REALLY special! :rolleyes: :rolleyes: )

    I hope someone would make that kind of "openGL wrapper" for the NAKED version of that demo... :drool: :drool: :drool: ;)

    PS. if you´re gonna watch that demo, make sure that you have enough virtual memory! :hammer: I had set my virtual memory to 526Mb and got Low virtual memory warning! When I set it to 766Mb (XP´s recommendation), it worked fine. :cool: :)

    Someone in this forum asked what´s the optimal amount of virtual memory in Win XP and minibubba said that

    "a guy that used to work for M$ told me that the amount of RAM + 14 MB is the optimal size for the paging file.
    any more than that is dosn't improve anything

    but whatever you chose for your swapfile, it needs to be a fixed size. don't let windows arrange it for you"

    so I set my virtual memory to 526 Mb because I have 512Mb of Memory! (512 + 14 = 526Mb) :hammer: Now I realised it was a bad choise. ;) :D :D

    :cheers:
