Where are you getting an "expected FPS" from? Have you recently upgraded to 6.1 and it was working faster before?
Have you switched display resolutions in moving to 6.1? Definitely using Direct Rendering (from output of glxinfo) ? Have you switched versions of the display driver? What has changed to make your current fps seem not so good?
I have to admit I also use glxgears as a quick-n-dirty speed check as well... but for me (fortunately) it's been a pretty steady upward progression as NVIDIA cards increase in number (and of course I upgrade the main CPU as well).
