I stand corrected. Perhaps it was a limitation in the X server that
wouldn't drive them so high.
I seem to recall there being an architectural aspect of the GX
processor that limits its use for X acceleration...something to do with
the GX's polygon model differing too much from X's polygon model or
something like that? Can anyone comment on that?
