    video card

    I drew some 3D solids with opengl and I works very slow on 4MB video card.
    I think this is normal, but I run my application on 32MB video card but there is
    no difference.
    Can anyone tell what I have to do to take advantage of power of the video card ?

    Can you give more details of the 2 boards and what you are doing and how you are testing.
    Reality is for idiots only the best over come it!

    Re: video card

    You are running in software rendering in every video card.
    This may be: a pixel format not supported, or no opengl drivers installed.
    Check with glGetString(GL_RENDERER): if it returns "GDI Generic" you are not using hw acceleration.
