Hello out there! It has been a long time since I've had any issues with my system, but lately I've noticed low FPS while playing WoW (World of Warcraft). So for the first time in a long while I decided to check out glxgears output, and it's EXTREMELY slow (the graphic of the cranks) and reporting this back to me:
[tux@tuxcomp ~]$ glxgears 35512 frames in 5.0 seconds = 7102.107 FPS 35618 frames in 5.0 seconds = 7123.487 FPS 35695 frames in 5.0 seconds = 7138.990 FPS 35163 frames in 5.0 seconds = 7032.441 FPS
Intel P4 Processor (2.8 GHz)
Latest 2.6 Kernel
512MB of RAM
Nvidia 6600 AGP 128MB
Sure hope someone can help
Tux has helped me close the gates!
Yes but what he's saying is that the gears are moving jerkily despite the reported speeds...
I also have this "problem".The glxgears are slow but the fps which i get is normal.I think you don't need to care about this if all which use 3d is good working.
I had the same thing in Xorg 7.0, gears looked like shit but the numbers were still right. 3D performance as a whole wasn't bad though so I figured glxgears must have had issues. With X 7.1 glxgears seems fine.
glxgears isn't a good test anyway, install GLOBS from AUR and see what it says.
