Here are a few reference values from old gear :-) :
P4 3.0 with FX 5200/64: wildly varying with values from 760 - 1440 (75% @
the higher value)
XP 1900+ with FX 5700Ultra/256: 4340 - 4660 50% in 43xx / 50% in 46xx
same gear 2nd run: 4990 - 5040 50% below / 50% above 5000

...and here's some newer gear:
A64 X2 4600+ with FX 7600GS/256: 3720 - 3740

So, what does this tell us?
glxgears is no benchmarking tool.

Btw: driver 100.14.3 with Suse 10.1 / 10.2 (the X2 is 10.2)
