    glxgears


    I just got 3d acceleration going with Slackware 10.1 with the 2.6.10 kernel but couldn't find a point of reference anywhere to determine how it is actually performing. Does this look good, middle-of-the-road or bad?

    Code:
    16629 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3325.800 FPS
    16631 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3326.200 FPS
    16628 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3325.600 FPS
    16628 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3325.600 FPS
    16626 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3325.200 FPS
    16626 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3325.200 FPS
    16625 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3325.000 FPS
    16625 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3325.000 FPS
    16625 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3325.000 FPS
    16625 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3325.000 FPS
    16624 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3324.800 FPS
    16600 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3320.000 FPS
    17537 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3507.400 FPS

    The default size for glxgears is very small, but that looks somewhat high, try running it in fullscreen, I get about 350 FPS on fullscreen with my Radeon 9200 ALL IN WONDER PRO

    Thanks. Here it is at full screen...

    Code:
    2266 frames in 5.0 seconds = 453.200 FPS
    2276 frames in 5.0 seconds = 455.200 FPS
    2277 frames in 5.0 seconds = 455.400 FPS
    2277 frames in 5.0 seconds = 455.400 FPS
    2277 frames in 5.0 seconds = 455.400 FPS
    2276 frames in 5.0 seconds = 455.200 FPS
    2277 frames in 5.0 seconds = 455.400 FPS
    2277 frames in 5.0 seconds = 455.400 FPS
    2277 frames in 5.0 seconds = 455.400 FPS
    2276 frames in 5.0 seconds = 455.200 FPS
    2277 frames in 5.0 seconds = 455.400 FPS
    2274 frames in 5.0 seconds = 454.800 FPS
    Look OK?

    it looks fine, that is a good amount of fps, you will be happy with it . I cannot say the same about your video card, if you have a radeon. I get nothing but **** from ati, the drivers are absolutely horrible. I cannot use any programs that require 3d exelleration with the drivers installed because my computer locks up. Threw in a nvidia card, and it works beautifully.

    I bought a new MX4000 Plus to replace my tried and true Geforce Ti 42000 SE that hosed a fan. The MX won't work right with the new Nvidia drivers, so I had to rig up a fan for my 42000 SE. It's working pretty well, but I hope Nvidia will come out with a fix for MX so I can use the MX 4000 Plus. I just got through playing Team Fortress for about an hour, and all seemed to be working as well as before. I'm afraid I'm not real educated on FPS and what is good or bad...

    You should leave the glxgears window sized as is and don't cover it with anything.

    FPs looks fine. For comparison my GForce MMX 2, 64Mb gets about 750 fps.

    Hi Chris H,
    What do you mostly credit for the FPS you have? The card? Your processor? Everything together? What would be the best ways I could go about increasing FPS? I have:

    120 G HD
    2 G Pentium 4
    512 RAM
    GeForce Ti 4200 Plus AGP 128 mb

    It's the card and the correct driver.

    There are one or two tweaks that people claim can speed up the fps for nvidia cards but I can't remember where I saw them

    If I get output of below 1000fps that means my 3D acceleration isn't working. With properly installed drivers I usually hit around 7500-9800fps.
