Kit: dual opteron, GeForce Quadro FX 700 (AGP - think it's a 700 model! 128Mb RAM on board)
e.g. tri-stripped dataset (approx. 950k triangles, ~2k nodes in scenegraph) was 35.8 mtri/sec, is now 11.8 mtri/sec!!!
Other egs: 500kpoly dataset (~22k nodes in scenegraph) was giving 3.2 mtri/sec, now 2.7 mtri/sec
On the other hand, the old RIVA TNT cards now work again :-)
I noticed a significant slow down down with the ("old") Enemy Terrirtory.
My FPS dropped from an average of 60 with the 6629 driver to about an
average of 15 FPS with the 7167 driver.
I went back to 6629.
This is on a Compaq 3000Z laptop with a AMD64 3000+ and
a 64MB Geforce4 440 Go.
At some point I'll study this more using the benchmark
