Hey there,

 

This is a poll — Easy enough, give me the card on which you most often play TDM.

I'm also interested to know about older/Intel/laptop/S3 stuff that plays it reasonably well.

 

This helps me to figure out if we can use high quality compressed normalmaps everywhere, or we need to try cater for legacy stuff.

 

Thanks!

serpentine: I have a Club3D Radeon HD5870 1GB DDR5 PCIe 2 x16 with reference HSF. Hope that helps. Also, m8, have you seen this: http://imgur.com/gallery/IV3KY

Intel might also be valid if you have switchable graphics... but you're probably (hopefully) using the nvidia Geforce instead   Don't worry, laptop manufacturers are notorious for making it hard to f

Serps you may want to setup more choices and make those multiple choice as I have the following that I test TDM on -

 

nVidia -

GTX480 1524MB - desktop

8400M 128MB - laptop

 

ATI -

HD3850 512MB - media

 

Not sure what my video would fall under. It's a geforce 105M in my laptop.

Its an rebaged 8400GS, both have 8 cores, but the 105m is clocked 4x faster The 105 will run cooler as its made on 55nm process compared to the 8400 on 80nm.

HD4650 1GB AGP.

 

3Dc arrived with X800 hardware but I recall you had a discussion where OpenGL didn't have an eqivalent till DX10?

 

Even so, HD2xxx is DX10 so your dividing line should be X1xxx and lower if DX10 is the minimum for 3Dc in OpenGL..

Older cards use the legacy drivers, which is something I find hard to care about.It also gives a better indication of other extensions and GL compliance, since it's easier to use with a list like : http://feedback.wildfiregames.com/report/opengl/

So a brief look shows that the HD2900 has the vendor neutral LATC and proprietary ATI 3Dc in OpenGL

 

While the X1800 only has 3Dc in OpenGL (unless the feature list is out of date...)

 

X800PRO is missing both...

 

LOL... If you have an Nvidia 9400M on OSX, no LATC for you. Windows and Linux you're good to go...

 

My card has LATC and 3Dc so I'm in the clear I suppose B)

ASUS k53ta-bbr6 - Radeon HD 6720G2 1 GB (actually an HD 6520? haven't installed TDM yet)

TDM will fly on this see notebookreview, but you are using driver version 11.0 and newer you will have to create a game profile so you can disable Ai catalyst for the upside down sky issue.

 

2 x 9500GT sli nvidia v285.58

Blimey never seen that combo before, this must be an only gaming laptop..?

ATI Radeon x1950xtx 512MB GDDR4.  It was great in its time, like 2006, but sadly, not anymore.

If I can make this change nice and easy on the assets (currently theres a little issue to resolve), it should be a bit quicker at least :)

Also, Nah I dont really need reports on what card you have unless it's old and still running TDM, then it'd be appreciated :)

Too bad, you're gonna get them anyway D:< (also, having an idea of what the 'average' power of the TDM community GPU is could enable the team to put in/accept higher quality stuff, if there's no fear most of the users are gonna lag out with it)

I used to play TDM on a Geforce 7600GS. It was playable in 800x600, average 20/30 FPS. The AI was what held me back on a lacking CPU. As I said in some other thread, when I overclocked to 2.4 GHz from 2.2, it made a quite large difference. Somebody should try one of those legacy cards in a system with modern components to see how well it can perform without other bottlenecks.

made a oopsie with my OS, CCC no longer functions after install, cannot disable catalyst AI. looks like time to upgrade finally....

Also my legacy card performs fair, most performance-intensive areas run between 15-20 FPS, with a couple notable exceptions running at 7-10.
