    It will depend what features the distros backport to their kernels.

    But yeah that was probably the case
    What you said can still be true. I don't see why an I2C would make any difference. agd5f only said that it wasn't an internal sensor, not that what you said wasn't true.

    Well, quake3 is much faster now, but i hit vsync limit (75 fps here)

    And i cant disable sync to vblank on 2.6.35 (from drm-core-next git repo) kernel, tried driconf - it has no effect.

    Alex, do you know (and could you tell) how to disable sync to vblank?

    Set the env var vblank_mode=0. See this bug for more vsync details:

    Curiously, I'm 100% with you on this one. It's high time developers get their priorities straight. I admit power saving, compositing, video acceleration and what not are interesting features. However, all that will be to no avail until we hit stable 125 FPS in Q3. Whenever I get that on my machine, the OSS driver can be considered finished.

    I guess r300g can be considered finished then?

    You should get an even bigger boost if you enable 2D tiling. Revert this patch:
    http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/dri...147af1d67e4407
    to enable 2D tiling.
