Default Re: Demo with dual render: OpenGL/Direct3D9 (benchmark inside)

I'm running cpufreq/powernowd (with userspace policy governor), which can be thought as a GNU/Linux-equivalent for "Cool & Quiet". I wouldn't pay too much attention to reported CPU clock as it could be read at startup instead of at the end of benchmark. When the demo is just started, the governor has not yet had a reason to increase processor frequency. Normally, the governor would notice increased CPU demand withing one second. It is also possible that the demo is significantly more GPU- than CPU-bound, and the CPU clock frequency never needs to be brought up.

Thanks anyway.
