Does make you wonder what the original RO5 driver on the Iyonix actually /does/ with its GeForce 2MX, tho', doesn't it? Does it take this super-powerful 2D and 3D accelerator with a local processor, 2 texturing pipleines and 2 pixel pipleines, buckets of RAM and the ability to draw 700 million textured pixels a second or 20 million polygons, including texture-mapping, shading them, lighting them and transforming them... and treat it as a dumb unaccelerated framebuffer?
