> I'm wondering, what is the output of /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status ?
$ cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status
Status:          Enabled
Driver:          AGPGART
AGP Rate:        1x
Fast Writes:     Enabled
SBA:             Disabled

As I said, I had to set a variable in os-registry.c of the NVIDIA_kernel
source (static int NVreg_EnableALiAGP = 1). By the way, I use the nvidia
driver version 1.0-3123. I have to force the AGP rate to 1x in the BIOS,
otherwise X won't even start.

Under Win32, the logfile says AGP is disabled.

I did a few flybys under Linux:
10.829952 / 16.560066 / 39.988850 fps         rand[1043303418]
Score = 16.566875

7.400313 / 25.939060 / 57.456963 fps         rand[1282053515]
Score = 25.955568

This seems a bit low for my system.

This is with the standard settings. I say this because I I don't know
where to change the benchmark settings. My in-game settings are those
generated by default.

And under WinXP:
27.009920 / 45.303852 / 143.390854 fps         rand[21984]
Score = 45.331013

26.559963 / 63.332687 / 215.978577 fps         rand[21893]
Score = 63.361439

Note again that under Windows I don't have AGP.
