stop using 'ondemand'.
I have only 1/3 to 1/2 of the fps in ut2004 I get with 'performance'.
Sometimes even lower.
Switching frequencies IS time consuming. So, if you measured runtimes for any
app with ondemand, you have very 'wrong' results.

Again, everything you measured with ondemand, is not worth the time you spent
