    Plasma performance is also miserable because of this. Specially when you turned on the Folder View. So I tucked a R7 240 inside my resurrected Core 2 Duo (Allendale, G33) computer, and the problem was "solved" immediately.

      I'm just looking at Wikipedias list:

        Meh, my Thinkpad T60's graphics were always a bit slow anyway. Can't even run Doom 3 at a decent framerate on 640x480 at minimum...and apparently, Doom 3 was probably using 2.0 extensions, so this might be a boon for that?

        In that vein: GZDoom requires 2.0 or higher. Doomsday engine's site claims "1.4 or newer" in the requirements page, though I seriously doubt it.

        Not that anybody gets an Intel-only T60 for gaming in the first place. :P
