Default Expected performance improvement with RIVA TNT2 64 Pro

I have an old 1 GHz Athlon box with a RIVA TNT2 64 Pro. With the driver that comes with X, glxgears performs at about 180 fps. With the Nvidia drivers, I am getting 285 fps. Is this the kind of improvement to be expected?

The reason I am asking is because on another system, with a more modern Athlon processor and a more modern Nvidia board (a GeForce FX 5200) the improvement is much more significant - about 7x.

I assume that, being older, the RIVA TNT2 is not going to provide a boost as big as the GeForce, but I wonder if the figures I am seeing are those that one would expect?

I forgot to mention that the RIVA box has a display with a 24-bit depth, and 1280x1024 resolution.

The score in glxgears doesn't say much at all it depends a lot on the cpu and other things. Better test real games like quake3 or whatever you like and you will see that the nvidia drivers are lets say 100x faster
