Odd glx performance
Good day nvidia fans
I have come across and odd annoyance. When I decided to move the old t-bird 1.4 to a 2500+ barton, I first had been using the MSI k7n2-delta without issue on the 2.6.3 kernel. I decided to instead use the Asus a7n8x-e deluxe. Again, everything seems well under kernel 2.6.3.
There is one thing that I did come to notice, however, after almost a week with the new board. Games tend to have a hickup. In FPS terms, the total fps seemed to have dropped 10 - 15 in quake3. 130fps with the k7n2 and 120 to 115fps on the asus. The trouble is a slight pause that is only a millisecond or so, but is just enough to drop that many frames.
Current config is as follows:
GF4 Ti4200 w/ agp 8x und 128mb DDR
Asus a7n8x-e deluxe
AMD Barton 2500+
Corsair 512mb pc3200 (cmx512-3200c2)
Linux Debian (unstable/Sid)
Kernel 2.6.3 (custom) with the -mm4 patches
No odd behavior in the logs both system and game. Nvidia binary driver has been reinstalled.
Like I siad, this didn't surface until I switched to the Asus board .
