Wireframe REALLY slow on a GeForce2...what's going on?

Hey guys,

OK I think this question has been asked before but I can’t seem to find the post about it.

I’ve got a GeForce2 GTS 32MB DDR RAM (the Creative Labs version.Anihilator2) with the latest Detonator 3 drivers.Now,when I switch to wireframe mode,my FPS drops like crazy! Why is wireframe so slow?

Wireframe (especially PolygonMode GL_LINE, which is an extremely inefficient way of doing wireframe) is slower than solid mode. That’s just the way it is.

Hi TheGecko !

Here are the links:

I know the “search” facility of this board is not quite cool (it takes forever to do a general “search”) but I had those in 3 seconds by searching posts with “wireframe” posted by “mcraighead” in the “Advanced” forum at “any” date !

Best regards.
