Default glxgears scores w/ 46.20 driver

Well im using an nforce 2 board with a Geforce FX5600 w/ 256MB ram and the 46.20 drivers.
here are my scores:
(im keeping glxgears at default size)

10357 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2071.400 FPS

Im just curious what everyone's scores are because my friend has a geforce 4 ti4200 and he gets just over 5000FPS in glxgears and im curious what others get and why mine is as low as it is.

Post Scores

I have a Geforce 4 ti4800se and I used to get around 4600 with the 4496 driver. Now with the 4620 I get around 4150 on average. The games I use are much better performance wise though.

Thumbs down well

I have a Dual Opteron system running Mandrake 64bits on it.

And My card is a Quadro FX 2000

and I have 2 Gigs of RAM

And the sucky driver can't get GlxGears over 50fps

Nothing wrong with the "sucky" driver, there's something wrong with your system. You either didn't install the driver right, a software upgrade broke the driver, or Mandrake has some weird incompatbility with the driver (similar to the FC1 /usr/X11R6/lib/tls issue).

If you're going to rant about suckiness, rant at the people responsible. ;-) Or, post a detailed thread with all the information you can think about the problem, and someone will help you fix it.

A dual opteron system should do far better than 50fps in software alone.

P4 2.0a i850e at 4x AGP, GeF4 ti4400.
I run ~3600fps on 46.20 and just before upgrading was running 44.96 at ~3800fps, but previously have seen this system run ~4300+ using 44.96 and 43.63 using the 2.6.0-test5 kernel with some patches. Right now I'm on 2.6.0-test9 patches and there seems to be some performance loss, but haven't tested with a well controlled set of parameters (and glxgears is a poor benchmark anyway).
