Picasso96 or CGX ???

Since the board I currently use (picassoII) and my new one (piccoloSD64) are supported by both rtg systems, I was wondering if there was any benefits for using either one... currently I have picasso96 and I have never tried CGX... any suggestions?

CGX4 has some nice features, including screen dragging, but I've found P96 to be faster and more stable.

like ant512 said

only exception I suppose is the damn Mac PPC version of
Fusion doesn't provide for P96 so I still run the
8.5.5 on the 060 part of the 233 :P

not that I have run that much in recent months...

Picasso96 is more of a "standard", so I would go with it. I use Picasso96 with my GVP Spectrum video board and I must say it works rather nicely, even on my old Amiga 2500. I have found that the main things you need when using a graphics board is 2 megs of Chip memory, lots of Fast memory, and a processor board, preferably a 68060.

For me CGX is quite a bit faster than P96 but P96 is a bit more compatible

I prefer CGX but maybe itīs just because I have a BVision gfx card ?
