I was curious about the W-Buffer. I've heard that it is a means to more evenly distribute depth values between the near and far clipping planes, whereas the Z-Buffer will clump the majority of depth values closer to the near plane. I would assume that it would be highly advantagious to use the W-Buffer when you wish to render long distance scenes (Terrain engine), and use the Z-Buffer for shorter stuff (Interiors).
