        glxgears gives me:

        31611 frames in 5.0 seconds = 6322.153 FPS
        34324 frames in 5.0 seconds = 6864.653 FPS
        34322 frames in 5.0 seconds = 6864.232 FPS
        34328 frames in 5.0 seconds = 6865.402 FPS
        34328 frames in 5.0 seconds = 6865.449 FPS


        fgl_glxgears gives me:

        9273 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1854.600 FPS
        9953 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1990.600 FPS
        9955 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1991.000 FPS
        9947 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1989.400 FPS
        9959 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1991.800 FPS
        9953 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1990.600 FPS

        For this test however, instead of seeing a cube with gears inside, I see just a white cube. On my x800xl I see gears inside the cube.

          For what it's worth. I logged back into Opensuse 10.3. I have the 8.41.7 driver installed. I was experiencing choppiness with my HD2600XT. I shutdown my computer put in my x800xl, logged into Opensuse 10.3, and it was smooth as a baby's behind with the 8.41.7 driver installed.

          My HD2600XT works perfectly in XP and Vista though, so don't think it could be the card.

            hi
            i have a laptop with a HD2600, using the 8.41.7 driver on ubuntu gutsy and i'm experiencing the same choppiness when moving or resizing windows
            any info from my system i can give to help resolve this annoying problem?

            fglrxinfo gives:

            display: :0.0 screen: 0
            OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
            OpenGL renderer string: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600
            OpenGL version string: 2.0.6849 Release

            glxgears:
            17660 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3531.893 FPS
            18704 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3740.773 FPS
            16879 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3375.781 FPS
            16879 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3375.676 FPS
            16795 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3358.919 FPS

            and fgl_glxgears:
            Using GLX_SGIX_pbuffer
            3939 frames in 5.0 seconds = 787.800 FPS
            4185 frames in 5.0 seconds = 837.000 FPS
            4178 frames in 5.0 seconds = 835.600 FPS
            4186 frames in 5.0 seconds = 837.200 FPS
            4182 frames in 5.0 seconds = 836.400 FPS

            everything renders ok...

            ps: great forum!

              Maybe that has something to do with the choppiness.

                  i hope 2d performance (along with many other things) gets fixed in 8.42...it's really annoying...

                  are there any beta drivers available for download?

                    Not to my knowledge. It just sucks that this driver was designed specifically for the HD2000 series, yet it works better with my X800XL. Hopefully this will be fixed next release because I'm excited to use Opensuse 10.3 it looks really good so far, and a working video driver would allow me to put my Windows days behind me.

                      Hi! I actually just got an HD2600XT and got 3D to work. I used that HOWTO to do so. http://en.opensuse.org/ATI_Driver_HOWTO

                      Make sure you follow the hard way. Print it out before because you'll have to go in init #3 mode (text based). Make sure libdrm is version 2.3, make sure you prepare the kernel following the steps. And it may not hurt to install Xorg 7.2. I did it and it works. 3D is enabled and no choppiness when draggin the windows.

                      Hope this helps!!
