    And also open gl is slower then dx this I know for a fact.

    Thats the most stupid sentence I read in the last years.
    1) OpenGL and DX have nothing in common,and it should read D3D (DX is the name of the whole package)!
    2) This quote is totally wrong...the fact that some games (like UT2k3) run slower when selecting OpenGL is due to the fact that their GL-Renderer isn't as optimised as the D3D one (cause of the fact that UT2k3 was developed with D3D in mind and that it's GL-Renderer is only experimental)

    First of all learn to read In my first reply you see d3d and draw and I also said in my opinion I used dx in the 2nd thinking that I already siad d3d an draw (directdraw,direct,3d,dinput ect. I know it is a pack other wise I would have said dx in the begining so hope you learn to read before you act it is your opinon what you wrote and I respect that but please dont say I am completley wrong for you also proved what I said(utslow). The reason why opengl is slow is if you don't have a good 3d video card. With dx this aloso aplys but most of the time it is just if you dont have the latest ver. So I hope I got to you.

    I can't believe I'm participating in a Dx vs OGL debate. Pretty much everyone here already knows better than to believe whocares's comment, anyway.

    So, I'll just say this... if you've got an nVidia card try playing games based on id engines like Half-life or Quake 3 and see what gives the better performance. I get a LOT better performance with OpenGL.

    The truth is, if used right both APIs will give about the same performance, at least with nVidia cards. nVidia gives good drivers for both OpenGL and D3D.

    If you have a crappy video card, D3Ds software implementation may be faster, but who cares, it's still going to be crappy performance.

    thank you you have shown my point of dx dinput, d3d,draw ok dx what ever. Yes dx games apps ect.(I like using ect.)do run faster then Opengl ones if you have a bad video card. You missed one thing tho since dx is faster on bad video cards the same aplys if you have a very good video card like a nvidia geforce2. My point was that dx is good but opengl is better since you can port to other os. Ok blallala!

    No, the same does NOT apply for good cards. For good cards, there are good drivers for OpenGL and Direct3D that take advantage of the hardware, and therefore any speed differences are negligible. Speed differences you may see in individual games are due to the game favoring one API over the other. I've written identical demos in OpenGL and Direct3D just to make this comparison for myself and OpenGL was only slightly faster. Can you say the same? It sounds like you are making assumptions based on a limited set of experiences.

    Now under stand My point was that dx is good but opengl is better since you can port to other os. Ok! And I also siad in my opinion now thats that! Do you know what I mean by o.p.i.n.i.o.n! Now class lets have a session! The best movie of all time is A.I.! That is a o.p.i.n.i.o.n that is true to one but may not be to another now I hope you understand. See.noe.Hear.noe.Speak.noe.

    You implied that DirectX was faster than OpenGL in all cases. That is something that can quantitatively be measured, and therefore is not an opinion. I simply stated that it your statement is not always true. If you don't believe me that there are cases where OpenGL is faster, and that there are cases where they are virtually identical, then you are welcome to try and prove me wrong.

    I only have one thing to say to that so this will not go on any further See.noe.Hear.noe.Speak.noe. Ok? Oh and who cares! Enogh!
