subzero,

T&L stands for Transform and Lighting. In earlier days, T&L operations were done by the CPU, which limited the game's geometrical complexity quite a bit and limited developers' creativity while creating environments.

A T&L capable card is one that contains two separate engines for Transform and Lighting operations. So the CPU is not stressed with the task of doing T&L operations and developers can create better artificial intelligence and physics using the freed CPU power.

Transform performance determines how complex objects can be and how many can appear in a scene without sacrificing frame rate. Lighting techniques add to a scene's realism by changing the appearance of objects based on light sources.

Your card, the Radeon 9550, is fully compatible with hardware T&L (that is, it is fully T&L capable) and even the newer DirectX 9.0 Pixel and Vertex Shader 2.0.

Hope that helped.

I'm also having trouble with this T&L stuff.
I have Asus L1400B laptop and I wanna know what my video card is, and I don't even know how to find out from my computer :wacko:
I try looking up the net, and I think it might be: Intel® 830 MG intergrated.
which I don't think is T&L capable...
any help appreciated

No check your graphics card, do the following:

1)Right-click on Desktop and select 'Properties'
2)On the 'Settings' tab, there will be a button 'Advanced'. Click it.
3)Now click on the 'Adapter' tab
4)Study the name of the adapter type and chip name

However, if it IS the Intel 830MG, it does not support Hardware T&L. This is a hardware limitation and nothing can be done about it. There is a program called 3DAnalyze (google it) which will allow you to emulate Hardware T&L. But I cannot guarantee it will work well.

The best you can do is upgrade your notebook graphics. I'd recommend the GeForce FX Go graphics card series (or better).

I personally recommend a GeFore 6 series and GeForce FX as minimum, but ATI Radeon is not bad either. Both companies have some great products now.

You might as well decide by seeing this link:

@Guest: In what sense do you mean 'upgrading'? Drivers or the hardware itself?

@Uriel: Yes, ATI has better value for money nowadays Smiley
