Performance Intel® HD Graphics graphic card

Hi i have problem with Performance my graphics graphic. I talk about Intel® HD Graphics located in Gigabyte MSH61DK-SI Motherboard.
Problem is when i play some game, for example Open Arena and i see black screen. I can heare sounds form game menu but i didn't see anything.
When i play Serious Sam 3 i can't se all texture in game menu only some polygons. When i play in Trine2 i have 3-5fps?
Beside this problem i was with Wifi card based on rtl8188 but i compiled oryginal drivers and copy firmware and i solve this problem.

$ lspci | grep VGA

In glxgears i have 60fps.

Can you help me?

Re: Performance Intel® HD Graphics graphic card

Just to be sure that you aren't stuck with software rendering, check this:

m@sauron:~ $ xdriinfo
Screen 0: nouveau
m@sauron:~ $ glxinfo |grep -i renderer
OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on NV98

If the system is properly configured for hardware acceleration, your problems are probably caused by some bugs in Linux or Mesa. Try updating these components (or "downdating" if you can find some known good version in /var/cache/pacman/pkg).

Re: Performance Intel® HD Graphics graphic card

Hello i have something like this

$ xdriinfo
Screen 0: i965
$ glxinfo |grep -i renderer
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Ivybridge Desktop x86/MMX/SSE2

My system is currently updated. Maybe i must configure mesa or xorg.conf ?

Re: Performance Intel® HD Graphics graphic card

The Intel driver doesn't use gallium, but that renderer string looks ok for intel HW accelaration.

keep in mind that intel onboard graphics are not known for having great performance.
There have been cases where 15 euro for a cheap discrete videocard improved graphics performance drastically.

Having said that, the WM/DE you use can make games performance a lot worse then possible.
What WM/DE are you using ?

Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them
