Odd glx performance
Good day nvidia fans
I have come across and odd annoyance. When I decided to move the old t-bird 1.4 to a 2500+ barton, I first had been using the MSI k7n2-delta without issue on the 2.6.3 kernel. I decided to instead use the Asus a7n8x-e deluxe. Again, everything seems well under kernel 2.6.3.
There is one thing that I did come to notice, however, after almost a week with the new board. Games tend to have a hickup. In FPS terms, the total fps seemed to have dropped 10 - 15 in quake3. 130fps with the k7n2 and 120 to 115fps on the asus. The trouble is a slight pause that is only a millisecond or so, but is just enough to drop that many frames.
Current config is as follows:
GF4 Ti4200 w/ agp 8x und 128mb DDR
Asus a7n8x-e deluxe
AMD Barton 2500+
Corsair 512mb pc3200 (cmx512-3200c2)
Linux Debian (unstable/Sid)
Kernel 2.6.3 (custom) with the -mm4 patches
No odd behavior in the logs both system and game. Nvidia binary driver has been reinstalled.
Like I siad, this didn't surface until I switched to the Asus board .
Do you mean you get a slight "delay" or "skip" in your frame rate?
Because i'm having the same problem. I can also see it when i run
glxgears, looking closely at the gears moving, every few seconds
i see a slight 'skip' in the animation. It happens in all my OpenGL games.
I found that i can fix the problem by modifying my XF86Config and
removing some of the loadable modules.
Sehh, could you specify which modules you removed?
This problem sounds somewhat similar to mine (here) except that you're not getting the badness messages. I'm also using the ASUS A7N8X - Deluxe. It was more noticable with my 5200 FX than with my Ti 4200.
Harshy, did you try the NVidia AGP module instead of the kernel AGP driver?
I solved the problem by only using these modules:
The problem is that extmod isn't there which means you loose XVideo extensions etc.
So i have a special XF86Config just for playing games, so OpenGL isn't affected.
Re: Odd glx performance
I had this same problem with a brand new 5900. I found that when I switched the 12/5V connector (It has one of those onboard power connectors ) to a different cable the stutter went completely away.
My symptoms were that with quake 3 my 125fps frame rate would drop to ~20fps every few tenths of a second, Making game play extremely choppy/nearly unplayable.
