Re: Lower than expected performance, FreeBSD 6 + PCI Express GeForce 6200 + nvidia 76
A small correction to what I posted earlier, logging into X as root does not influence my performance apparently. Not sure why I thought it did, maybe it really did - but but I have not been able to reproduce it.
I have at this point given up on getting decent performance in FreeBSD 6.0 and OpenGL apps. Someone in #nvidia on Freenode told me FreeBSD / nvidia-driver PCI Express support is limited to normal PCI bus speeds, which would be a perfect explanation for my problems, and this was also confirmed to a post of mine on the FreeBSD-questions maillinglist.
I wish you good luck
