Default Re: FX5200 in linux low performance

Windows Q3 runs openGL as well as Linux, so despite having DX9.0c installed it is more or less irrelevant (he's used a valid test game). I haven't seen a similar problem with the cards I've used with Q3, but have not tested a 5200 under linux. That is a huge performance hit however, so I wonder if you have some hidden settings different. You did verify things like FSAA and aniso being the same right? Color depth?

Keep in mind some settings in Q3 won't be active even if you have them set.. and require restarting Q3. Its best to start it up, exec the config to test with, quit, and return to the game for the test.
