Unhappy Xeon 2.4 & E7505 & FX5200 => 1000fps

hello

I have a Fx5200 graphics card, xeon 2.4ghz and 1Go DDr but :
[fluf@XeoN fluf]$ glxgears
4025 frames in 5.0 seconds = 805.000 FPS
4915 frames in 5.0 seconds = 983.000 FPS
4758 frames in 5.0 seconds = 951.600 FPS

My mother board is a tyan 2668 with intel e7505 chipset, i've just one proc (no money for the other one)
So i compil my 2.4.22 with no smp support and agpgart as a module

a part of my XF86config-4

Hi

There really is no question in you post.
But I assume it is that you think glxgears show to poor figures.

I have dual xeon 2.8 on E7505 and a FX5600.

Thing is the graphics-card has two outputs. Where the second one seem to be slower, and also tied to the TV-out.

Perhaps try to switch to the other output on the graphics card?

sh-2.05b$ glxgears
24180 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4836.000 FPS
28316 frames in 5.0 seconds = 5663.200 FPS
28317 frames in 5.0 seconds = 5663.400 FPS
28307 frames in 5.0 seconds = 5661.400 FPS

Just a thought

Cheers
// Peo

Your performance figures are similar to others with a 5200. This card has some significant differences between the 5600, the performance gap there is understandable. Which FX5200 model do you have? (specific manufacturer part number)

I think the 5200 numbers coming up are low for the cards capability, and probably a new driver version will help them along, but don't expect magic.

You might try getting your AGP rate locked down to 4x and see how that goes, not sure if the 8x is utilized properly in 2.4 kernels.

check the cooling, that can slow it down. But yah I have heard the between a 4200 TI and the 5200 the 4200 kicks butt. this is unfortunate.

Check a game that is cross-platform openGL rendering, such as America's Army, Quake3, UT, UT2k3, NWN, or something along these lines. I think you probably will have similar results on both platforms (assuming you can get a copy of windows running too....).

Your card has a 3.2GB/s memory bandwidth, this is very similar to the ti4200 and ti500 cards. While you may get some better performance out of it, I wouldn't lose sleep over it too much for now.

You can change the AGP rate that the card driver will allow in the kernel module source I believe, but at this time can't find out for sure how this is done (no time to research, just an idea).
