BARELY better than a 8400GS..Fairly the same. Your memory bandwidth is about the same. It might be almost playable/kind of.

Last time I'll post in this thread...

I looked around, and actually HAVE a 8400GS laying on a shelf...

So I popped it in, and my FPS in Dal and such were in the same range as the OP. (No other settings changed from my 9600GSO). When I went to Ironforge, and "ran the circle" on my mount, the FPS was at 35 or so. With my 9600GSO, it's at 80 when nothing else on my system is taxing video at all.

Next, I tried it in Windows 7 64bit Ultimate. My FPS was about 5-10% lower in all those places than in Linux. But the percentage drop from my 9600GSO was about the same.

So I thought..."Why not pop my 9600 back in, and do a comparison between Linux/wine and Win7, and record the results?"

So I did.

And here they are.

I then tried the same thing with my 8400GS, but the video choked.

Basically, you need a better vidcard, OP.

And I've managed to prove that wine/WoW IS faster.

Mine?

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+
2GB DDRII ram
Nvidia 9600GSO 768MB DDRII

Nothing spectacular. Need to go to a X3 or X4 if I want to get better FPS in raids, etc

This is what I don't get. I did upgrade my card to something a little better. GT220. And I am having the same issues. It is making me wonder if something else is going on. I have an AMD x2 4400+, 4GB RAM. Power supply is a 400 watt. Not too far off from your specs.

In Windows XP I can't get the FPS past 60, even with all the video effects at the very minimum. In Vista with Aero off, I can get an average of 70 FPS with everything on except Shadow and Water effects.

In Wine with everything off it hovers around 20-30 fps with all effects off. In Dalaran it is in the upper teens to low 20's with everything off.

I am completely lost on this. It makes no sense.

Edit: With glxgears I am getting:

With the small default size window -
Quote:
31254 frames in 5.0 seconds = 6250.765 FPS
31273 frames in 5.0 seconds = 6254.476 FPS
31280 frames in 5.0 seconds = 6255.889 FPS
31259 frames in 5.0 seconds = 6251.609 FPS
31277 frames in 5.0 seconds = 6255.393 FPS
31285 frames in 5.0 seconds = 6256.908 FPS
31274 frames in 5.0 seconds = 6254.652 FPS
30942 frames in 5.0 seconds = 6188.245 FPS
31191 frames in 5.0 seconds = 6238.116 FPS
30831 frames in 5.0 seconds = 6166.114 FPS
With the window minimzed -

52869 frames in 5.0 seconds = 10573.781 FPS
52750 frames in 5.0 seconds = 10549.935 FPS
52346 frames in 5.0 seconds = 10469.041 FPS
52436 frames in 5.0 seconds = 10487.026 FPS
53112 frames in 5.0 seconds = 10622.385 FPS
53106 frames in 5.0 seconds = 10621.153 FPS
53116 frames in 5.0 seconds = 10623.191 FPS
53130 frames in 5.0 seconds = 10625.868 FPS
53119 frames in 5.0 seconds = 10623.724 FPS
53124 frames in 5.0 seconds = 10624.773 FPS
53088 frames in 5.0 seconds = 10617.574 FPS
51279 frames in 5.0 seconds = 10254.510 FPS
With the Window Maximized -
Quote:
2833 frames in 5.0 seconds = 566.455 FPS
2831 frames in 5.0 seconds = 566.199 FPS
2832 frames in 5.0 seconds = 566.229 FPS
2831 frames in 5.0 seconds = 566.088 FPS
2832 frames in 5.0 seconds = 566.390 FPS
2833 frames in 5.0 seconds = 566.532 FPS
2758 frames in 5.0 seconds = 551.580 FPS
2791 frames in 5.0 seconds = 558.167 FPS
These numbers are a little more then doubled with what I was getting with the 8400GS. But I am still getting the same ingame frame rates when using Wine and WoW with the GT220 as I did with the 8400GS.


I can't get a GT240 or higher since my computer does not have a PCIE 2.0, so a GT220 is all I can do with that. But like I said I am thinking it is not the Video Card that is the problem.
