I don't know wether its a driver regression or a GPU regression, so that at least the 6600 series isn't able to perform subpixel-AA as fast as a cheap FX5200 with the same drivers.

Post your .fonts.conf file in your home directory on both PCs. Also, what font are you using, on both PCs? Can you try arial? Arial has byte code info in it, so it makes for a good test.
Ok, I'll have a look, the next days I'll get access to that computer again.

There has to be something that is different... A duron beating out an a64 running the same seems impossible.
Well there are some different things, another graphic card and another chipset. However I hardly believe its tha chipset since many people reported problems only using the 6x00 series.
