DirectX 7.0a vs. 8.0 and 8.0a

  1. I was wondering how much of a performance drop I would have if I went from DirectX 7.0a to 8.0 or 8.0a. I have a Pentium III 533Mhz, 128 MB RAM, GeForce 256 (3D Prophet), and also I have the TNT3 drivers installed (4.12.01.0631). How much performance will I loose if I upgrade? And are the new DirectX drives more stable than what I got? Thanks for any help people could give.
     
  2. The performance decrease very little actually. Don't worry about it. I'd recommend Dx8 and not the new a version though. There have been some bug reports coming in on the a version for w98 users.<P>------------------<BR>Hilbert Hagedoorn - Chief Editor<BR>- "Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else."
     
  3. Thanks a lot! I'll download the 8.0 version. And thank you for having a great site! I visit it daily.
