Listen very carefully I will say this only once.<br><br>glxgears is a -lousy- way to test 3d/opengl performance. You may as well measure the framerate of the windows opengl screensavers.<br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">

Hi,<br><br>there are some reports in the net saying that the new free radeon driver<br>can do better 3D acceleration than fglrx, at least for 9200 cards. So<br>after debian etch was released, i checked this out. Good old UT99 is
<br>playable, but UT2004 was too slow (8 fps vs. 50 fps).<br><br>Has anybody got some experiences with this? Is it a configuration<br>problem or is the free driver just not as good as pseudo-benchmarks like<br>glxgears suggest?
<br><br>By the way, i've got a radeon mobility 9200 which is not exactly a 9200<br>chipset.<br><br>Regards,<br>Lothar<br></blockquote></div><br><br clear="all"><br>-- <br>Alex Boag-Munroe<br><br>Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine.
