You're getting indirect rendering.

Actually, I was missing the 32-bit nvidia libs on my system. All fine after installing lib32-nvidia-utils.

Seems to be a nVidia driver limitation of some sort as earlier an i7 + GTX 285 was exactly the same speed as my Core 2 3ghz + 9800 GTX+ setup.

You get the same speed as me as well.

It makes no sense that multiple levels of "top-tier" nVidia cards all get the same exact score...

Could be that this 'benchmark' is not optimized at all. It looks like DX8 + shadows over it

As always, benchmark some games if you want to compare the performance between graphic cards. What we have compared here is how this engine runs on different hardware, not how different hardware compare to each other.

Did you use the same settings the result I posted earlier was at 1680x1050 with 16xAF and Occlusion enabled.

Did a new run with the same settings as Jupiter1tx (using the 185.19 driver) here are the results:

Results
Linux - OpenGL: 44.1 / 1111
Linux + WINE - OpenGL: 45.6 / 1148
Linux + WINE - Direct3D9: 33.3 / 838 ( shaders are corrupted, no reflection, water rendered with bad precision i guess )
Windows - OpenGL: 45.6 / 1149
Windows - Direct3D9: 59.3 / 1494

in the news: New Unigine Project Will Work On Linux and Ask Questions About The Unigine Engine

i've sent a mail to them, asking about performance issues:
Quote:
Results
Linux - OpenGL: 14.3 / 360 ( using 1 core only, at 100% )
Linux + WINE - OpenGL: 6.5 / 164 ( using 1 core only, at 100%)
Linux + WINE - Direct3D9: 11.2 / 282 ( shaders are corrupted i guess, the water looks jagged like in need of AA, no reflection on the dock wood, tints of green everywhere where some sort of reflection should be, performance gets better on tests 6&7 only, ( using 1 core only, X.org uses ~50%, while Tropics uses ~50% of that core in the first 5 tests and in test 10, and 100% of 1 core on tests 6..9 ) )
Windows - OpenGL: 14.1 / 354 ( using 2 cores at ~90-95% each )
Windows - Direct3D9: 5.4 / 137 ( using 1 core only at ~14-20%, and at ~40% in tests 6&7 )

While i do understand the WINE limitations, native results are strange too, first of all the demo does not use both cores all the time, and the behaviour of the D3D9 renderer is puzzling.

Also, any idea when a 64bit version of the Demos will be released ? As of now the demo does not work with the 32bit compiled OpenAL libs present in Debian Sid.
and they answered:

It could be a driver issue because we have rather equal FPS on
OpenGL/D3D9 usually.

There is another problem with OpenAL in Debian: it's way too old, Unigine uses newer version.
Regarding 64bit builds I can said that we plan to add them into next update of the demos, but it will be in 2-3 months only.

Licaon:

Wine + D3D results don't really mean a lot, since Wine probably emulates some d3d instructions not found in OpenGL.
