Question Poor performance of 3D acceleration

Hello everybody!

I've been struggling with my crappy GF2MX for several months, without success. The problem is that I get only about 350 fps with glxgears (40-45 in fullscreen). Also UT2k4 runs terribly slow. However, all the configuration seems to be right:
- xorg.conf has been correctly modified
- glxinfo tells me that direct rendering is enabled
- AGP is enabled
- links in /usr/lib are fine, there are no signs of Mesa.

Tried almost all nVidia drivers since 4xxx (now I'm using 8174). Intensive googling didn't help. Kernel is 2.4.31, running on Debian Sid.

Has anybody encountered similair problem? Thanks in advance

What makes you think that the perfermance you're seeing is not in line with your hardware's capabilities?

What kind of performance are you seeking to obtain?

Thanks,
Lonni

Hi!

I've googled that GF2MX should obtain over 1000 or even more fps in glxgears. And UT2k4 runs smoothly in Windoze on the same hardware.

BTW, in my first post I forgot to mention that I have 1,4 GHz Celeron.

Please post a bug report.

Also, can you point me to where you read that GF2MX should obtain over 1000FPS in glxgears?

Thanks,
Lonni

For example here: http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=19495%2006, but you can find such information in many more places.

I'm losing my hope for solving the problem, but anyway thanks for replies!

Hi again!

I solved the problem partially. After changing color depth from 24 to 16, fps in glxgears jumped to over 700. I've tried to do it before on older drivers, but there was no diffrence then. I also overclocked the card a bit with nvclock and now I get around 870-890 fps. Should be better, but at least UT is now playable.

Freedevil, it looks like your AGP is disabled.
