, i have heard a bout hardware instancing , so im assuming there must be software instancing

there is code in directx DrawIndexedInstanced as well

there is also geometry instancing


so , could any one explain what the term hardware instancing means and in which situations you would use geometry instancing because from i what i can tell its only really usefull for particle systems and billbording
and what kind of instancing would be used for full complicated meshs ?
