While in X, open a terminal window and type glxinfo. What SAX is reporting is probably software rendering enabled via Mesa, but Tuxracer required hardware rendering from the card itself. Post the ouput from the lines near the top about "Direct Rendering" and "GLX vendor".
It took me a long time to get 3d to work on my IGP 320M. I finally did with the dri-common and dri-radeon packages from sourceforge.net.
