Default Few glclocks kill FreeBSD

I launched 5 glclocks and 2 glgears.

System became almost unresponsive.

Load went to 8.5, CPU usage 55% user/45% system.
GL apps worked with interruptions, but everything else was horribly slow, even mouse pointer almost didn't move. GPU temperature went to 92C degrees (ambient temperature was 45C).

Is this normal?

I think this is NVidia driver (1.0-8178) problem. GPU should be busy, but why OS itself is so busy? Apps only supply bunch of triangles, driver should just pass them to GPU and it should do the rest.

I use 6800GT, FreeBSD 6.1-PRERELEASE (32-bit) on AMD-64 3200.
