Hi all,
I purchased a new Graphic Card, the GF6200 because my Radeon 9600 pro was damaged.

I reinstalled Fedora Core 5 and installed the drivers from livna

yum install kmod-nvidia
(like it's desribed in the FedoraFaq.)
But now I get only 2858.077 FPS with the glxgears-window minimized, with my 9600 pro i got around 10000.

Here is the output of glxgears:


6916 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1383.053 FPS
6915 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1382.914 FPS
6916 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1383.144 FPS
6918 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1383.517 FPS
11625 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2324.922 FPS - with window minimized
14291 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2858.077 FPS
14296 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2859.157 FPS
14291 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2858.127 FPS

The output of glxinfo (only the first lines):

You can't rely on glxgears as a benchmark. I get 250fps with glxgears on a 7300GS - but I can max out Doom3 and still get 50fps.

How well do your games perform? That's the only question that matters.

Hey Jason, thanks for your reply.
I played Nexuiz, Neverball and GL-117 and they seem to run without any problems, but i haven't played them before with my 9600 Pro so I don't really know if my card is using it's full potential.
I think i will search for a benchmark-tool for linux that is more reliable than glxgears.

Greetings

Your monitor can maybe do at most 75 Hz, which means that it refreshes at 75 times per second. 2000-3000 fps blows away whatever your monitor can keep up with, so the difference can't even be noticed, ever.

I tried out of curiosity and I get almost 18000 fps with my 6800GT
