I know that the GeForce FX5200 officially supports core image. I've wondered about this, though. I've had 5200s in G5s, iMac G4s, and mobile 5200s(12" Powerbook). I've seen 5200s described as "barely" having core image support. Even so, systems so equipped list Core Image support as "hardware accelerated." I also know that 5200-equipped systems don't show any of the "eye candy" in Leopard usually associated with Core Image like the translucent menu bar or "ripples" in the dashboard, while these are there on better core image cards(Radeon 9600 and up, GeForce 6 series). Is there any real advantage to the Core Image support in the 5200? I'm asking because I'm trying to get a PCI version flashed to work in a B&W, and am wondering if it's worth giving up OS 9 support for the(seemingly) limited core image functionality of a 5200. BTW, I'm currently using a Radeon 9200 in the B&W, which has 128mb of VRAM. The 5200 I'm trying to flash has 256mb-not 64mb like most of the Mac versions of this card.
