Default gtkperf slow on 8500gt

Sorry for my poor English.

I have an AMD Athlon64X2 5600+, 2GB of RAM and two cards (PCI-e), 7600GS and 8500GT. I use a 171.06 latest beta driver.
In gtperf:
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/g...ar.gz?download
8500GT is much slower than 7600GS. I swap only cards, not drivers, or other things.
Why newer card is slower?


8500GT test:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
GtkPerf 0.40 - Starting testing: Tue Mar 18 19:51:49 2008

GtkEntry - time: 0.04
GtkComboBox - time: 2.30
GtkComboBoxEntry - time: 1.81
GtkSpinButton - time: 0.35
GtkProgressBar - time: 0.18
GtkToggleButton - time: 0.99
GtkCheckButton - time: 0.66
GtkRadioButton - time: 0.85
GtkTextView - Add text - time: 1.19

GtkDrawingArea - Lines - time: 0.37
GtkDrawingArea - Circles - time: 0.51

Thanks.

Join the Club. Most people that have upgraded to the 8xxx series have this issue. It probably due to immature drivers.

The same problem here with 6800XT. My friend has got GeForce 5500FX and it's much faster in Firefox or Konqueror than my card.
