Just read a blog entry of a student with a story about developing a 3D demo
, mentioning that his hardware is pretty old. He's got a Radeon 9800 Pro.
I'm developing a quite popular 3D engine, and I've got a Radeon 9200 SE. So if his one is old, what's mine? Phew. Did I metion that I coded the first few Irrlicht engine releases only using the onboard 2.5D hardware of my Notebook? :) I think I'm a little minimalist when it comes to hardware upgrades.
