I've been all over google seeking a solution to my problem but without any luck, so I'm hoping I may get a solution here. Anyhow, the problem is what the title says. To start, I'll provide some hardware & software specifications.
CPU: 1.7 GHZ Celeron
RAM: 512 DDR
Video: 256MB ATi Radeon 9550
OS: Debian Sarge
I have the ATI Proprietary Linux x86 Display Driver 8.36.5 installed and both OpenGL and DRI seem to be working correctly.
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: ATI Radeon 9550 / X1050 Series
OpenGL version string: 2.0.6458 (8.36.5)
glxinfo | grep direct
direct rendering: Yes
I've ran glxgears and the FPS is horrible.
2621 frames in 5.0 seconds = 523.671 FPS
2785 frames in 5.0 seconds = 556.174 FPS
2749 frames in 5.0 seconds = 548.710 FPS
2819 frames in 5.0 seconds = 563.351 FPS
However, this varies from low 100's to 600's (sometimes even 1k+ but rare).

If anyone can provide a little assistance, that would be excellent.
