Slow Redraw ATI and Win2K



New Member
OK, something's up here....Two systems:
600 Mhz P3, 256MB Mem, ATI 3D Rage Pro 8MB running Win2K and 450 K6 III, 64MB Mem, ATI Rage II 4MB running NT4.

Comparing Adobe Framemaker drawing a full page graphic, the 450 IS WAY FASTER!!! Drawing speed on the 600 is unacceptably slow - even though I have much more muscle on this PC.

I suspect the ATI driver for W2K on the 600. Have tried both W2K's and ATI's beta - still the same poor results. Or could it be the difference between W2K and NT4? (I think not). Anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Are you running in 24 bits color depth? I got an ATI Rage IIc and the drawing was much more slower in 24-bit than in 16 or 32-bit.
