I think that's the issue isn't it. Whilst AMD was allowed to purchase good 'ol Canadian ATI, the same may not fly for an attempt at Intel trying to buy NVidia.

Question Re: nVidia 8000/9000 Series Performance Issues

Sorry if this was covered in this (lengthy) thread, but how can I test the 2D performance of a card on Linux ?

(For 3D there's e.g. glxgears, say.)

gtkperf is an old (obselete?) benchmark

or xrenderbenchmark or x11perf

for xrenderbenchmark or gtkperf you'll porbably have to download sources and compile them, but x11perf should be included in your distro's packages (if not installed by default).

Or you could also get phoronix's test suite (benchmarks the entire system and includes its own packages).

Bear in mind that the results are fairly meaningless unless you know what it is you're testing.

Also as for the original question, glxgears is NOT a benchmark...(in the sense that the results are conclusive or have any meaning beyond "it works")

Exclamation Re: nVidia 8000/9000 Series Performance Issues

Thanks !

Can anybody tell me why does the runtime of GtkPerf scale worse than linearly with the number of runs ?
In my case:
Quote:
gtkperf -a -c 100
Total time: 14.06
but

Quote:
gtkperf -a -c 1000
Total time: 202.10

closed vs open source drivers aside, i do hope nVidia gets their groove back regardless.

Add me to the list of disappointed customers.

Now I reget not to get the same laptop with cheap intel graphics. That would be a lot faster for every day use, cost less and would need less power. Virtually everything is better with them. (except 3D performance, but that is not really important, when your normal Desktop is soooo slow)

Will Nvidia buy me a new laptop (it is not possible to replace the graphic card in it). If I were a judge, I would Nvidia force to buy me a new laptop (Nvidia would get my old one, they could try to sell this). ;-)

If I were a judge, I would foce nvidia to release their drivers open source. They effectively scammed us by not providing working drivers.

Thumbs down Re: nVidia 8000/9000 Series Performance Issues

And again someone disappointed. I've been happy with the NVidia performance until KDE 4.0 came out - now I see how horrible the XRENDER implementation is... My next piece of hardware won't have any NV in it, sorry... Bought it already. Maybe in the future.
