I don't think it would need to swap out an app in use to slow down the program. Swapping anything could slow down the system. Anyway, I'm now trying to get the R9700 to work in Linux. It's interesting...agpgart won't recognize my nForce2, so x won't start using ATI's drivers.
Hrm, that brings up a possibly different problem. The stuttering would definitely be more pronounced if DMA was disabled. I checked /proc/ide/hda/settings
Under "Using dma" there was a value of 0.
Do you know how to enable DMA?
