Proper GLX Gears Comparision


I'm just curious to hear what frame rates you are all getting but I need to be sure that we are all testing things the same way. Please quote your fps figure when running IN FULL SCREEN 3 gears, solid, both sliders to max and note your default resolution.

Thx.

Slack 9.1, Nvidia 4496, Geforce2 GTS (32 meg), 1152x864 159-162 fps


I did extensive testing of nvidia drivers, and made a thread here about it.........for my box and video card, the 4496 driver gave me the best performance........so I will stick with it..........I'll boot into my LFS partiton and see what fps I get there and re-post those results..........

Fine for me - don't game in linux.

By the way, I thought I saw someone post somewhere that the nv driver gives better 2D performance. Has anyone else heard this? I didn't notice a difference personally when I tried - just curious. Maybe I was dreaming.

586 frames in 5.0 seconds = 117.200 FPS
583 frames in 5.0 seconds = 116.600 FPS

585 frames in 5.0 seconds = 117.000 FPS

Slack 10, Athlon XP2600, FX5200 (128MB), 5336 driver, 1024X768 32bit, with some apps open but not active.

Seems really slow compared to everyone else. It doesn't bother me, I don't game, but why walk when you can run? Any ideas why it's so slow?


Code:
]# lsmod | grep -i nvidia
nvidia               2071432  12 
nvidia_agp              5788  1 
agpgart                28392  2 nvidia_agp

try a "cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/*" so you can see an eventual problem.

Have you the line 'load glx" in the section module of your X config file?

with the same card and an athlon XP 2400, I reach 600 fps per second (debian sid, driver nvidia 6111, 1280*1024, depth=24)

Thank you everyone.

It seems that MX based stuff should achieve about 150 fps and FX kit at least 500 fps. I guess it's time then to update the MX4000 to a cheap FX series card.

The next time I see someone brag about a gears fps in the thousands, I'll remind them to run it fullscreen :-)
