any good ?
that's about 10 times faster than my ati9200se.
if that is the fps while running in the standard window it's fast i think.

I can see the animation window but maybe the numbers depend
not just from the graphic card,the overall setup maybe

Im on 2600xp athlon with 512 ddr 400

and 2.6.10 kernel

i've got a sempron 3000 w 512mb/333 ; 2.6.11.11 kernel
that cannot make such a diff.

i've got this in my xorg.conf for that card :

----------
Section "Device"
Identifier "card"
Driver "radeon"
ChipId 0x5964
Option "Overlay"
Option "EnablePageFlip" "on"
EndSection
-----------

would you mind posting yours ?
( only the section "device" )

Run glxinfo | grep direct ,

and don't minimize or defocus the glxgears window when running it because it will show wrong results. (however if you have software rendering minimizing the window will make no effect, but if you've hardware acceleration, it will.

Your numbers look a little weird to me... You're getting 500-600fps for the first 40s, which is a little more reasonable for your video card's capabilities, and then suddenly jump to 10's of thousands of frames per second? What's even more interesting is that your numbers drop back to where they should be in your last iteration.

Did you cover the window, or minimize it, or do something else to obscure the window so it wasn't fully being drawn? And what resolution are you running your desktop at, since that seems to have an effect on the result on my system?


For reference, my system's configuration is:

Athlon XP 2200+
1024MB DDR366 (OCZ PC3000)
ATI Radeon 9550 256MB DDR (I used to have a 9600Ultra, but that bit it with some help from an ESD)
DRI enabled, using FireGL's OpenGL render engine

And the result I get is pretty consistently 1379fps when I haven't touched the window, and over 3,000fps when the window is shaded or obscured.

And my laptop's configuration:
AMD Athlon4 1.2GHz (1197MHz actually)
256MB PC133 (128 soldered on board, 128 in expansion slot)
S3 TwisterK (using the built-in Savage driver), 16mb shared video
No DRI, using Mesa OpenGL engine

That one gets exactly 100fps if I leave the window alone, and exactly 200fps if I obscure it.




EDIT: oh yeah. Desktop is 1920x1440@75Hz. Laptop is 1024x768@whatever the LCD does

( and not 6550 ).

so i'd like to see how it's configured....

egag here it is


Code:
Section "Device"
    Identifier  "mygraph"
    Driver      "radeon"
    #VideoRam    131072
    # Insert Clocks lines here if appropriate
EndSection
i don't think there is something interesting here to see

yip, covering the glxgears window gives me about 4200 fps.
( and the processor is used only some 28 % )

props666999: you could try to add the " pageflip " option.
that made a change here from 550 to 750 fps.

but i still don't understand the huge values from your first post ?

my screen resolution is 1280x1024 75 Hz


Code:
glxgears
2823 frames in 5.0 seconds = 564.600 FPS
2936 frames in 5.0 seconds = 587.200 FPS
2937 frames in 5.0 seconds = 587.400 FPS
2936 frames in 5.0 seconds = 587.200 FPS
2937 frames in 5.0 seconds = 587.400 FPS
2936 frames in 5.0 seconds = 587.200 FPS
2937 frames in 5.0 seconds = 587.400 FPS
2937 frames in 5.0 seconds = 587.400 FPS
2936 frames in 5.0 seconds = 587.200 FPS
2937 frames in 5.0 seconds = 587.400 FPS
2936 frames in 5.0 seconds = 587.200 FPS
2937 frames in 5.0 seconds = 587.400 FPS
2935 frames in 5.0 seconds = 587.000 FPS
2937 frames in 5.0 seconds = 587.400 FPS
2937 frames in 5.0 seconds = 587.400 FPS
