Same settings except for 16 bit desktop:

6983 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1396.600 FPS
6983 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1396.600 FPS
6954 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1390.800 FPS
6980 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1396.000 FPS
6984 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1396.800 FPS
6983 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1396.600 FPS
6980 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1396.000 FPS

Kind of ironic that Nvidia put 3dfx out of business partly because of not losing any performance at higher color settings. Must be a bug or something isn't turned on or off by default and we just haven't ran across it yet. I really don't care about glxgears, but the huge discrepancies in Quake3 between win2k and linux performance on the exact same system really bother me. I really want to eliminate any need for windows, but as long as I'm getting 2x the framerate, there's no way I can go exclusively with Linux.

Looking forward to some kind of answer, even if that answer isn't what we want to hear. Thanks for any help that may come.
