Interesting. I ran the same tests in XP SP2 Parallels on my PacPro. I *did* see textures in software lighting test in Parallels, but not in the hardware lighting test. My Parallels numbers (OS Window mode only): OpenGL-SW-L: 834 OpenGL-HW-L: 446 My OS X numbers: OpenGL-SW-L: 2007 OpenGL-HW-L: 4211 The really strange thing is that the Parallels hardware numbers are LOWER than the software ones, both in your tests and in mine. I've no idea what that's all about!
