Default Really low fps, but everything else is fine...

I'm having a problem. glxgears gives approximately 10 fps, but glxinfo says direct rendering: yes. I have a 6600gt with kernel 2.6.16 on debian sid, with the latest drivers. What could possible be wrong?

glxgears is not a benchmark tool. Download quake3 demo or something like that instead and test with that. I suspect that glxgears can even differ from distro to distro. And the "aprox. 10 fps" was that with the -printfps or just by looking at it? (it looks to be slow).

If you just installed the card, did you remember to plug in the power connector?

6600GT just uses the pci-e bus for power

They come in AGP flavors aswell. And his is an AGP card, (from the bugreport log).

I know it's not a benchmark, but I'm getting ~10 fps (with -printfps) whereas before I had something closer to a12ctic's. I recently purchased another PSU, so I'll check that, but the card does have a power cord connected...I just checked.

I'm downloading Quake 2 right now, but I'm on dialup. I'll reply with an FPS from that. Is there a proper video benchmarking tool for Linux?

Thanks for the reply!

Re: Quake. the shareware download is 40mb. That's a long time on my crappy dialup. Is there another way of getting a benchmark? Any other (smaller) games? Thanks.

There is viewperf, which is in the 100'ish MB.

40MB is not alot for a graphics benchmark tool.

The point is that you should connect it!
I have a 6600GT AGP as well and it does have a (drive-style) extra power connector.

glxgears gives me more than 6900 FPS, but when I enable "sync to vblank" the FPS drops to the vertical refresh rate (60). As could be expected.

Lithorus: Ok, ok, I'm downloading Quake. And I thought Quake was a game, not a benchmark .

pe1chl: It is connected. I meant I'll check the PSU with a voltmeter. I don't believe I have "sync to vblank" enabled, but how do I tell?

Thanks!

Ah I misread it...
You can start nvidia-settings and check the GL settings.

Well, i just checked Quake2, and with the OpenGL GLX video mode, at 1280x1024 (my native resolution) with 8-bit textures and max texture quality, I get a constant 5fps. It doesn't change, it stays at 5 no matter what I do.

pe1chl: nvidia-settings acts exactly as if everything were fine...I'm not sure where to look, but I don't see anything big and attention-grabbing.

I'm checking my PSU tonight...
