Default Re: how to interprete the result of gtkperf??

It is not bad, but using compiz better results should
be possible, as this is with a nvs140 (quadro mobile):

fuchs@thinkfox src $ ./gtkperf -a -c 1000
GtkPerf 0.40 - Starting testing: Sun Apr 20 14:35:12 2008

GtkEntry - time: 0.20
GtkComboBox - time: 14.26
GtkComboBoxEntry - time: 12.94
GtkSpinButton - time: 1.15
GtkProgressBar - time: 1.54
GtkToggleButton - time: 4.45
GtkCheckButton - time: 5.31
GtkRadioButton - time: 7.68
GtkTextView - Add text - time: 19.54
GtkTextView - Scroll - time: 18.76
GtkDrawingArea - Lines - time: 7.32
GtkDrawingArea - Circles - time: 11.81
GtkDrawingArea - Text - time: 4.85
GtkDrawingArea - Pixbufs - time: 0.13
---
Total time: 109.95

Quitting..

But, as you see from the gtkperf homepage,
this hardly depends on

- X Settings
- GTK Engine used

and on nvidia specific settings.

Mine are here:

http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Instal...uadro_NVS_140M

but remember, those are for a nvidia nvs140,
at least initialpixmapplacement settings are probably not good for you.

GTK engine used here is gtk-engines-qt

Any reason you guys use old and/or legacy drivers for 8xxx cards?
Edit: nevermind, just noticed the date on the OP. I blame sevrage.
