Reader: follow-up on OpenGL support

Guy Broker followed up on yesterday note about OpenGL support on older machines:

"I have a Lombard PowerBook (ATI LTPro), and also experience the lack of pan & zoom in the screen saver. However, I have run a few of the open GL demos from the Developer Tools package (/Developer/Examples/GLUT) and they run fine, if a little slow. Under 10.0.4 the pan & zoom in the screen saver was pretty slow and jerky, so perhaps they have simply determined that these machines arn't powerful"

Reader: Quake under OS X 10.1 performance

Rob Art Morgan passed along some observations running Quake under OS X 10.1:

"I upgraded my G4/800MP to 10.1 yesterday and installed the latest 1.30 b1 of Quake 3 Arena for OS X. I set s_chunksize to 2048 as Graeme Devine suggested. At 640x480, 32 bit, "Fastest" settings, I got 163 frames per second! And at 1024x768, 32 bit, all settings maxed out, I got 120 frames per second! (Graphics card: GeForce3)/ This shows the great potential for the Power Mac running 10.1. It's no wonder Graeme and other game designers are so excited about developing hot games for OS X."
