Autogen Game Objects Creating Shimmering Effect on X1600

    I'm using an X1600 on a Pentium 3.6 under Windows XP running Microsoft
    Flight Simulator FS2004 and now the demo version of FSX. On both
    versions, the X1600 is making every one of thousands of autogenerated trees
    shimmer. From altitude it almost looks like they are all moving like a
    swarm of angry bees. It looks incredibly ugly, unnatural, and it cannot be
    an intended effect. Does anyone have any idea on why this might happen,
    and why does it look so bad on the X1600 in particular? On another
    system, running RADEON 9800, I don't see this effect nearly as much. Is it
    a driver setting, a problem with the X1600 hardware specifically, or a
    problem with RADON X series cards in general?
