Hey All!
Ok I got this info from MaximumsPC mag aslo from their online the mag vas July99 Vol4 No. 7. In the review they reviewed 5 cards, such as: 3DFX V3(both), S3 SAVAGE4, NIVIDIA TNT2/TNT2 U, ATI RAGE 128, and MAxtor G400.
ok and on the PG 72 they had Dare to compare chart w compares all cards together and i saw that TNT2/TNT2 U has suport for bump mapping (single pass) i dont what it means
and MATROX had suport for Bumpmaping but (Enviromental mapped) i wounder twhat is the diff.. between the two.

All cards except the g400 use software bump mapping, or emboss. Its more or less, quasi bumpmapping. The g400 uses hardware when applicable, otherwise uses embossing.
