I'm quite new to Linux, so please bare with me if my question(s) is stupid. I have recently got an Intel Core i3 2100 for a HTPC and I'm working my way through installing Fedora on it. I have installed F14 on it and it works ok but I find that the graphics are much slower than I expect. So I waited for F15 that is suppose to have support out of the box for the new Intel graphics but I find that the graphic performance has not improved.
So I don't know if I'm expecting too much from the embedded graphics, or I'm testing it wrong or I don't have the right drivers. To test this the graphics I run glxgears -geometry 800x600 (I know that it is not a full graphics test, but I can't find a proper benchmark and I figure it should be able to be running at 60FPS since it is that simple) and I barely get 7FPS.
I think I have the right driver installed since rpm -qa | grep intel returns xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.14.0-6.fc15.x86_64.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
