I have a 8600M GT and with compiz, euphoria screensaver runs slow. This is not normal.
I have a Geforce 8600GT and the euphoria screensaver runs quite well on my system.
Maybe there is something wrong on your system.
I have to say that the situation has quite changed since I started this Thread.
Now I use ubuntu 7.10 with the latest beta drivers v169.04 and the 3D performance is better and smoother as it was.
My results for q4demo:
resolution | 1280x720 Hight Quality
compiz | 114,5 fps
without compiz | 127 fps
My results for ioquake3:
resolution | 1920x1200 Hight Quality
compiz | 296,5 fps
without compiz | 303,5 fps
Sure I have some more fps without compiz but the difference is so small that I can live with.
I mean it is still not perfect but to my mind I have to say that I use compiz every day without big problems. Sure there is always something that you can improve.
Now back to your post.
Maybe you could tell us something about your System.
- driver version
That would help to solve your problems.
