Agreed - performance-wise AIUI VPod > VF (R128) using RO6 driver > VF (R128) on 4.X using JK driver, due to the bus bottleneck and native video abstraction support on RO6 respectively. The actual GPU speed is unlikely to have a significant impact AIUI, simply because on the Rage 128 on the RPC even when commands are queued there is often insufficient data for a 'command queue' to occur - graphics operations are performed 'instantly' as far as the OS is concerned!
