Just a comparison, 6800GT on 3Ghz Pentium 4 box, video: twinview 3200x1200, KDE 3.5. royw-gentoo etc # glxgears 44741 frames in 5.0 seconds = 8948.200 FPS 56631 frames in 5.0 seconds = 11326.200 FPS 45769 frames in 5.0 seconds = 9153.800 FPS 45602 frames in 5.0 seconds = 9120.400 FPS 57139 frames in 5.0 seconds = 11427.800 FPS Then for grins I ran it again and maximized the window (filled one of the two monitors) within the first 5 seconds: royw-gentoo etc # glxgears 35083 frames in 5.0 seconds = 7016.600 FPS 4027 frames in 5.0 seconds = 805.400 FPS 4037 frames in 5.0 seconds = 807.400 FPS 4036 frames in 5.0 seconds = 807.200 FPS 4034 frames in 5.0 seconds = 806.800 FPS Have fun, Roy -- gentoo-amd64@g.o mailing list
