ATI fglrx drivers being slow


I installed the fglrx drivers from ATI and it worked fine. Installed straight from the rpm, glxinfo says direct rendering is on and the version/renderer strings say ATI, the module is loaded, X works, fgl_glxgears works, everything works. However, glxgears is giving me about 700-800 fps and from what I've read on the forums it should be giving around 3-4000. Is this wrong? Anyone have any ideas? I've tried with and without the internal agpgart module, same results.

Setup:
FC2, kernel 2.6.8-1.521
X.Org 6.7
KDE 3.3
ATI Radeon 9200SE, fglrx driver version: 3.11.1
P4 1.6 GHz
512 Mb ram.

That seems just correct, especialy on ur system. I've used a radeon on a few systems, with both DRI and FGLRX. The most I've seen was 2200, that was with my Radeon 9600. And my Celeron 2.0Ghz, and 512 megs of 3200 ram. I seriously believe that DRI is better then Fglrx. Try DRI, theres one for the 9200, not the 9600, but whatever.

Hmm, ok, thanks, I tried them a while ago, I don't really remember how well they did, maybe I'll try them again. I didn't think the card was that much worse though, oh well.
