I remember some old Voodoo cards had maximum texture dimensions of 256 x 256. What about hardware in use today? I know that my relatively old TNT and TNT2 both support textures up to 2048 x 2048. Are there still cards out there today that are limited to textures smaller that that?

Generally, you''d be safe assuming 1024x1024.

But it''s definitely a good idea to check the hardware caps anyway

I thought that none of the Voodoo cards prior to 4 supported 1024x1024 in hardware ?

I was thinking of "recent" cards. If you''re thinking older voodoo (1-3) they only supported 256x256 or 512x512 max.

Again, ALWAYS check the hardware caps...

I guess I didn''t know that a Voodoo 3 was an ''older'' card. I know 2 people struggling to use them.

One of those online databases (forget which one) had incorrect info on a card that I personnally own and was able to verify. Makes me leary.

Thanks for the link Spartacus! Even if the info is not always 100% accurate in such databases, at least it gives a good idea of what one can generally expect.
