    last time i play an physX game it runs in wine right CPU only(amd card).

    physX for linux is just worst because x87 code no multicore and nvidia only on the gpu
    That's about to change- and it's HARDLY the same as "not there".

    my info is right just because UT3 need vertex texture fetch VTF and an vanilla OGL2.1 can't handle this you need OGL3 or extensions but for exampel dx9 amd hardware can not handle VTF
    However, the game WOULD run on DX9... Sorry, just because it wanted it doesn't mean it needed it. When will you figure out...you're arguing this with someone that does this stuff?

    if the game runs on 2.1+extensions this means the game do not run on 2.1 at all.
    Just because it can run on 2.1+extensions, doesn't mean it needs to or requires it.

    You may think you've proven your point, but all you've done is make yourself look sillier than usual here...

          2006 vs 2008 ? ''

          you are right

            you also can run this game on vesa and without video output at all.

              runs worst is the same as not there in my point of view.

              you also can play the game in vesa via software rendering just because if it wanted it doesn't mean it needed it.

              full game? no you only speak about the half game because the half game works on VESA with software rendering to with x87 code singlecore and super worst with only 1fps.

              to not release a game also means it runs bit not so good then better not release the game for linux.

                    Maybe this will just be another strange case of Valve Time!

                    Valve Time: "No comment."
                    Actual Time: "This christmas"
                    Item: "Steam for Linux"

                    It would make perfect sense! Right? Right?

                    I think they'll get Steam for Linux when it's done. Perhaps in time for Duke Nukem Forever.

                      Sure you can, but when your running them on those minimum requirement cards you are not running in VESA mode. They are running with hardware acceleration. When you said:

                      because you can not run it on dc9 hardware like an X1950
                      that is a bunch of bull. Here is even some benches if you wish:

                      Not even Epic stoops so low as to list cards that can only use software rendering.
                      In fact UT3 plays quite nicely on a 7600GT card as well with hardware rendering.

                      Yes the full game.

                      He is not talking about 1/2 the game. There are Physx and non-Physx versions of the levels. Also nvidia's Physx is being optimized for multicore SSE optimization as well in a soon to be released version of it. In any case even the older x87 base does not slow down to the extremes you are claiming unless for some reason you are running it on a underclocked atom processor.
