The GeForce GT 240 failed to work with VDrift due to a driver issue (the Radeon HD 6570 also had a strange issue), but the GeForce GT 520 came in at the same frame-rate as the GeForce GT 220 while the ATI Radeon HD 4650 was nearly twice the frame-rate of the GT 520 Fermi.

With the most demanding OpenGL test for Linux, the Unigine Heaven tech demo, the EVGA GeForce GT 520 was only pushing 6 FPS while the lower-end GeForce GT 220 was pushing nearly 12 FPS (likely due to code-path differences with the Fermi supporting OpenGL 4.1 versus OpenGL 3.3 and the tessellation code-path. For this test configuration, the Radeon HD 4650 came in at 18 FPS.
