6600GT TDH Low Peformance ...
 
Hi,

I get a LeadTek 6600GT TDH (AGP) and low performance :
~4200 FPS with glxgears (3500 with a 9600 Pro !)
~30 FPS with doom3, Medium Quality, 1280*1024

Strange visual bugs on FarCry and bad perf (Windows).


My hardware :
AMD64 3200+ Core Venice
2*512 PC3200 Corsair Cas 2
ABIT AV8
Antec SmartPower 2.0 400W

System :
Debian 32bit
Gentoo 64bit
Windows 32bit (only tested with farcry and Trackmania)

I Tried to use another Power Supply only for the card, to unplug DVD and DVDRw to plug only the card, etc ..

I'm using last drivers.

Some infos:

Lack of AGP support likely explains your performance problems. Please generate and attach an nvidia-bug-report.log file.

Re: 6600GT TDH Low Peformance ...
 
I tried with :
nvagp + NvAgp 1 (no dmesg error, but /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status tell me the same thing ...)
agpgart + amd64_agp + NvAgp 2
agpgart + amd64_agp + via_agp + NvAgp 2
agpgart + via_agp + NvAgp 2

and there is always this problem.

Please use agpgart/amd64_agp (NvAGP doesn't support the Via K8T800Pro), leave the "NvAGP" option unset, start X with the NVIDIA driver and generate an updated bug report file.

With agpgart/amd64_agp on Gentoo 64Bit
NvAGP set to 2 ..
http://xf.iksaif.net/nvidia/nvidia-bug-report2.log
I will try without NvAGP after a bios upgrade ;)

NVRM: unable to initialize the Linux AGPGART driver, please
NVRM: verify you configured your kernel to include support
NVRM: for AGPGART (either statically linked, or as a kernel
NVRM: module). Please also make sure you selected support
NVRM: for your AGP chipset.
NVRM:
NVRM: note that as of Linux 2.6 AGPGART, all chipset/vendor
NVRM: drivers are split into independent modules; make sure
NVRM: the correct one is loaded for your chipset.


This shows that AGPGART was loaded and detected a bridge, but that it failed to initialize. This doesn't look like an NVIDIA Linux graphics driver bug, unless it only happened after the NVIDIA kernel module was reloaded.

Re: 6600GT TDH Low Peformance ...
 
bios update, nothing new (a line in mtrr maybe ?) :'(

I tried to test with the program in this post :
http://lkml.org/lkml/2005/12/31/88
the result is :

if it can help ...
