Performance problems
I have had some issues with Nvidia card performance. I have three different systems with Nvidia cards in them. A dell inspiron 8200 640MBDDR (geForce 4 go), Pent 3 733Mhz 512 MB pc133(goForce 2 MX 400), and an AMD 1333 Mhz 256MBDDR (Geforce 4 440 MX, Geforce 2 MX400). Now the performance on the Laptop and Pent 3 systems seems fine, but on the AMD the performance seem to be sub-par. I have tried both the 3123 and 4191 drivers on the AMD system, and don't seem to get any improvement. The geForce 4 440 upgrade only seems to get me about 8 more frames per second over the geForce 2. Even though I enabled FastWrite on GeForce 4 and never did for geforce 2.

here is a link to benchmark test results, and system setup for all three system.


Any help would be great.

same with me. I have Athlon-xp 1800+ geforce2 mx 400. performance is bad. I swap the card and is still the same.

At what resolution were the Q3A test done on??

Test at 800x600
All tests were done 800x600 on all systems.

Hmm, those benchmarks are slower than I thought.

I get 153.x fps @ 1280x1024 32Bit everything maxed out.

That sucks for me. I wonder what my issue is. I guess I will try to remove all packages, and make sure all GL, and glx files are removed from the system, then I will reload and mess with XF86Config-4 file

Hmmm... I've just realised too... That I'm running a GF4 Ti4600 (128MB)...(NOT overclocked)

I seem to read about alot of performance issues with GF4 MX's etc regardless with it be with Linux or Windows...

I don't know what else to suggest... :confused:

There must be an answer some where, I'll keep and eye out...
