Default fx5600xt bad performance glxgears, what? if i hide the window i get better result!

glxgears give me:
6871 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1374.200 FPS

but if i minimize the window i get:
15169 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3033.800 FPS

what is the problem. maybe because of my refresh rate of my monitor? here's some info:


Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
HorizSync 30.0 - 96.0
VertRefresh 48.0 - 120.0
#Option "DPMS"
EndSection

(i commented DPMS, cause i read that performance can be better without it?)


Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "nvidia"
#Option "RenderAccel" "1"
Option "NvAgp" "1"
Option "NoLogo" "1"
Option "TwinView"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "31.5 - 68.7"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60.0 - 75.0"
Option "MetaModes" "1280x1024,640x480"
EndSection

(i don't think that the twinview option is causing the problem, cause even without it the perfermance are the same.)

Do you have anti-aliasing enabled? Check that __GL_FSAA_MODE=0 before you
run glxgears. Also, isn't the 5600 a low end card? maybe it can't score better with
glxgears. How's graphics in games?

patrick... you are absolutely fine... nothing to worry about. your graphics card doesn't have to draw the frames if the window is minimized... that's why you're getting a better score... anyway... the score's fine for a 5600XT...

p.s.: and you gave me a good laugh too... :-))))
