- Mar 31, 2007Hi, Carel.
If you want smooth panorama viewing I strongly suggest you to search for
notebooks/laptops with accelerated video cards, such as Nvidia's "Go"
series. With a hardware accelerated GPU you could take advatage of the
Spi-V viewer and get the smoothest viewing you could dream of. Do some
research on accelerated video cards for mobile computers and see what's
I'm quite sure that even with a pretty modest accelerated card you would
get incredible frames per second rates, regardless of the main processor
speed or type.
Surely Aldo could put some more light over this matter..
