Default Re: GPU gets not utilized (G84)

I had some interesting, talk to a well know wine dev. To sum things up:

-it's not the conversations (dx->opengl) that makes wine slow, they are quite efficient today

-some dx stuff is hard to implement with opengl, cause it lacks sometimes the equivalent opengl calls
-also due to compatibility reasons, not the most efficient opengl calls are used

This means:
The rendering speed of wine doesnt depend that strong on the cpu.

But,
were still using the old 100.x codebase on linux. Some people might know that the 100.x drivers on windows had similar speed issues, and the 7600GT and 8600GT had not that big speed difference.
So problems will hopefully fixed when the next major driver bump appears.
