Debian :: Glxgears Shows Very Poor Performance With Ati Radeon 1300?

Mar 31, 2011

I have an ATI Radeon x1300 graphic card on an Intel platform.Since the last reinstall my Debian Squeeze system shows very poor performance in glxgears,only 80-90 FPS. Last time I had a problem the kms setting in the kernel. I disabled the modding setting in GRUB and then glxgears showed about 900-1300 FPS. Now,the problem is back, even though I made the same setting in the boot loader.

Debian Hardware :: Poor 2d Performance Lenny Radeon 9600 Firmware?

Jun 15, 2010

i had recently loaded squeeze and had an issue with the 2d performance.i.e when being prompted for the root password, the shading slowly draws down the screen several times before stopping at the final darker shade. i then added the linux-firmware-nonfree package. all worked extremely well, even compiz, but i don't really care about compiz. i just loaded it to see how it performed. i then distro-hopped a bit and when i came back to squeeze the first thing i did was add the package, but the video is acting like i haven't added the package. i've searched for an answer, but have not found anything recent to indicate if xorg was upgraded or what.stable lenny works fine, but i'd rather have the nice console fonts when not in x and more up to date apps like gimp and xsane in squeeze.

Software :: Compiz Glxgears Get's Around 400 FPS Where OpenBox Get's Around 1300 FPS ?

Feb 14, 2011

I just upgraded my graphics card to something faster... (well as fast as you can go with only PCI-X slots)

I noticed when in OpenBox glxgears get's about 1300 FPS and the HELI-X simulator about 40 FPS.

But if in compiz I get 400 FPS in glxgears and 6 FPS in HELI-X.

Is there something I've configured wrong? Why would compiz FPS go down so much, should glxgears be about the same?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: ATI X1650 Poor GLXgears Frame Rate

Jul 26, 2011

11.04 x86
Dual 2.8 AMD
ATI x1650 radeon (512mb)

I've been struggling with this for months now and I've tried some many things, I've forgotten half of them!

Basically, 11.04 picks up my card fine using the open xorg driver. I've got compize desktop effects (wobbly windows) but I can't play any HD video as it stutters and is completely unwatchable.

So to do any video editing, I have to boot into my Windows 7 install where the performance is considerably better.

Now then, I once managed to get a glxgears frame rate of 11,000 before I broke my install and had to re-install. Now I can't get above 300fps

rb@ub:~/Desktop$ glxgears Running synchronized to the vertical refresh. The framerate should be approximately the same as the monitor refresh rate.

302 frames in 5.0 seconds = 60.258 FPS
301 frames in 5.0 seconds = 60.023 FPS
301 frames in 5.0 seconds = 60.019 FPS
301 frames in 5.0 seconds = 60.022 FPS

Ubuntu :: GLXgears Getting Low FPS On A Radeon 5770 ?

Jun 15, 2010

The following is my system:
AMD Athlon II x4 620 2.6Ghz
4GB DDR2-800 DC
Radeon HD 5770 1gb
Ubuntu 10.4 LTS, latest proprietary drivers.

On GLXGears, I only get 12k fps. This seems very low, especially considering the fact that my Acer Aspire One laptop gets 1-5k scores on a POS Intel GMA 950.

Ubuntu :: 8.10 - IBM ThinkPad R32 Poor Performance

Feb 8, 2010

i'm trying to run ubuntu 8.10 intrepid ibex on an old hand-me-down laptop that i got from a family member, and i've noticed that the performance is actually much worse than it was on windows xp professional (32-bit).

first of all let me give you my specs:
ibm thinkpad r32
intel mobile pentium 4-m 2.0 ghz
ati radeon mobility m6 (i think this is actually the mobility radeon 7000 igp) with 16mb ram
256 mb ram (pc-2100)

i understand that these are very low performance specs, but it feels like the computer is running very sluggishly even for those specs. the computer ran just fine in windows xp, but is extremely sluggish in ubuntu. it seems like it detected all the hardware just fine, but i feel like it may not be utilizing the cpu and/or video to the extent that it should be. a couple of places where it really seems to struggle is when first opening new programs, viewing flash intensive web 2.0 type webpages (i.e. videos), and listening to music/podcasts (with rhythmbox).

it seems like rhythmbox really kills my performance more than anything else, but the performance is poor all around compared to xp, and i feel like that shouldn't be the case. like i said, i understand that the specs are poor, but it feels like it's not even living up to those specs. i know that 8.10 is old and outdated now, but it's what i had laying around and i figured that it might perform better on this old deprecated laptop than 9.10 would anyway. am i wrong in this assumption? would 9.10 perform better for me?

Ubuntu :: Poor Performance On Pentium 4 Machine?

Aug 4, 2011

I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on a laptop that was given to me. It is having a lot of lag issues,especially when playing videos and visiting websites using flash. It's an Intel Pentium 4 2.4GHz machine. I think that it should perform better because I had used and AMD Sempron 2.0GHz machine with Ubuntu before and video playback was much better than this. I'm thinking that my problem is the graphics card driver. Here is the card that this machine has:

:~$ lspci | grep Radeon
01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon IGP 330M/340M/350M
The AMD machine was using a VIA graphics chipset.

I used the command "Xorg -configure" to create a xorg.conf file, hoping that might help. But it didn't. Here it is:

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier " Configured"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"


Is there any tweaking that I can do in the xorg.conf that might help? I don't know which of those options I should set. I also tried changing the driver to "ati" but that did nothing. found some info for settings with "man radeon", I'm going to try some of those out.

Hardware :: Poor Graphics Performance With 64 MB Card / What To Do?

May 4, 2010

I have an ATI RADEON 7000 (taken from lspci) 64 MB graphics card. My computer has a 700 MHz Celeron CPU and 650 MB RAM with Ubuntu 10.04. Anything graphical is slow. I cannot even play basic games like SuperTux. I think it is a graphics driver problem. Will this card ever work well with Linux, what do I need to do?

CentOS 5 :: Poor Mdraid Performance On DL160 G6?

Mar 26, 2010

I just installed CentOS 5.4 on a brand new DL160 G6. In order to get the data raided I decided to go with mdraid. But I see quite harsh performance hits, I have no GUI or anything and just the basic server installation, and even the console feels sluggish.

The output from disk:

Ubuntu :: Poor Desktop Performance With NVidia And Four Monitors?

Dec 20, 2010

I experience very poor desktop performance on my system. General clicking responsiveness is poor, taking over second or two to focus to a new window, move windows around, ... etc. The Xorg process constantly uses over 60% of the CPU even when I'm doing nothing, and when I do click around it will quickly go up near 100% usage. Performance is initially OK when I first launch into my Gnome environment, but it soon deteriorates within 30 minutes or so. Eventually, after days of being up and running, my desktop will crash.I am running Ubuntu 10.10 with latest upgrades. I have four monitors attached to my "nVidia Corporation G98 [Quadro NVS 420]" graphics card. I am running the "NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version current)" recommended in the Ubuntu "Additional Drivers" app. I get a fair number (hundreds) of these in my /var/log/Xorg.0.log:


[862923.098] (WW) NVIDIA(2): WAIT (1, 6, 0x8000, 0x0000ba04, 0x0000ba14)
[862923.099] (WW) NVIDIA(3): WAIT (1, 6, 0x8000, 0x0000ac44, 0x0000ac54)
[862923.099] (WW) NVIDIA(0): WAIT (1, 6, 0x8000, 0x0000fca0, 0x0000fcb0)


though they don't appear constantly while my desktop is running (I assume they may come in batches?). Not sure if they're relevant. A separate issue, though possibly related, is the SpeedCrunch app (a desktop calculator) is guaranteed to crash my desktop as soon as it gets focus. Here's the relevant output of "lspci -v" which shows my graphics card:


03:00.0 PCI bridge: nVidia Corporation NF200 PCIe 2.0 switch for Quadro Plex S4 / Tesla S870 / Tesla S1070 / Tesla S2050 (rev a3) (prog-if 00 [Normal decode])

Bus: primary=03, secondary=04, subordinate=06, sec-latency=0

CentOS 5 Networking :: Poor Network Performance On New Server?

Jan 29, 2009

ok, we had to move one of our databases due to failing hardware. This box is newer than the old but it's just dog slow. 1st I thought it was mysql but now I am realizing it's the network. As a test, I tried copying a remote file to that box and the old server (located at the same co-lo, same provider), same switch, etc.Here are the results;

Old server:
access_log.1 100% 4192KB 1.4MB/s 00:03

New Server:
access_log.1 100% 4192KB 72.3KB/s 00:58

So now I see why people were complaining about webpage load times, etc. I can't figure out why the network latency. I looked around a bit, see below for some things, I thought mtu, nic speed, etc.

mii-tool shows;
eth0: 100 Mbit, full duplex, link ok
eth1: 100 Mbit, full duplex, link ok[code].....

Are there other things I can type to test or provide more feedback somehow to get more information.

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Poor I/O Performance On IDE/SATA Disks?

Jan 13, 2010

I've just removed fedora 10 and installed CentOS 5.4 both x86_56 on my Lenovo ThinkCentre 9091-CTO workstation, and observed serious performance degradation while intensive I/O operations and huge load without significant CPU consumption in user mode with about 50% in I/o wait.For example if I do the "tar xjvf" file and run vmstat i get the output below. This is the only cpu and io intensive process running. The load gets up to 6 on C2D CPU and the machine has unacceptable responsivness.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Poor Performance For X264 - Video Is All Jerky In VLC ?

Jan 25, 2010

So for the last, oh, three or four hours now, I've been trying to get videos to play properly in Ubuntu. I have the default player, I have vlc, I (apparently) installed mplayer, but it won't play anything at all.

I was having horrible screen tearing with standard definition .avi's in vlc, fixed that by setting vsync in catalyst control center to always on or whatever it is.

Now, I have tried to run a 720p x264 video. It PLAYS, but not well. Audio is fine, however video is all jerky in VLC, and in Totem it's just a mess of screen tearing (although the video does no jerk on that player).

I have just spent HOURS trying to get VIDEOS TO PLAY. This makes no sense. Playing a video should be the simplest thing in the world for any OS to do, but with Ubuntu it is like pulling teeth. I have NEVER been so frustrated while using a computer. What is going on here?

BTW, I installed every single thing needed to use mplayer but it still does not work. The player comes up but will not play any type of file.

My system specs:
2.2Ghz dual core (intel)
3gb ram
1GB radeon hd 4650 vid card
asus ipibl-lb mobo

I was really enjoying Ubuntu until I got around to trying to watch some videos. Now I am maybe minutes away from going back to vista. At least on there I can watch full 1080p videos if I want with no problems.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Intel Graphics And Random Poor 3d Performance - Sometimes Its Okay Sometimes No

Apr 16, 2010

I am running kubuntu 9.10 on a dell inspiron 14 with an intel GM45 graphics card. When I run 3d games like Nexuiz, openarena and tremulous I get really random performance. Sometimes things are totally playable with somewhere between 50-80 fps and other times I get maybe 4 fps and everything takes forever to load. These effects persists between logouts, X restarts and reboots! I get no errors when I run things in console either.I never really play games much but when something doesn't work...

CentOS 5 Hardware :: 5.6 + Adaptec 5805Z And LSI Expander + Raid 6 Poor Performance

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Radeon R350 NH Dramatic Performance Drop?

Mar 18, 2011

I'm wondering if anybody could explain this phenomenon to me. I have just had a box stop on me, probably power supply failure. It was running with an AMD 2GHz cpu, 32 bit, 2GB memory. The Radeon card was using the x-org "radeon" driver and giving upper 3000 to lower 4000 fps according to glxgears.

I have transfered both the radeon card and the hard disc from the dead box and loaded them onto a different one. The new one is running with an intel pentium 4 running at 1.7GHz, 32 bit, 1GB of memory. On this box glxgears reports only upper 600 to lower 700 fps.

OK. It's a slightly less powerful cpu but by only 300 MHz. "top" shows glxgears using 72% of the cpu and the cpu shows that it's loaded at 60%. There is still free real memory and the usage figures for it do not change during the running of glxgears. I am really puzzled as to why there is a fivefold plus drop off in performance.

I mean, the software etc is the same as on the old box - it's using the same disc after all. I can only think that there is something else that is getting in the way but what?

Ubuntu :: Performance With Open Source Radeon Driver With X1650

May 28, 2010

I have a performance issue using the open source radeon driver. I normally would just attribute this to the driver still not ready, but it was working fine on the Mandriva install I just wiped out. I replaced madriva in order to have Qimo sessions for my daughter to use. When I try to run glxgears the gears basically don't move.

Debian Hardware :: Glxgears Showing 900 FPS But 3d Games Very Slow?

Aug 13, 2011

I just installed Debian Squeeze a couple days ago and haven't had any problems so far except trying to get 3D acceleration to work with my Radeon 5770 card. When running glxgears, I get over 900 FPS and the gears are spinning great. When I try to run a 3D game like OpenArena, ScorchedEarth, or FlightGear, they are all so slow as to be unplayable. (extremely slow)

I've been trying to get this working for a while and had no luck.As per internet advice, I installed firmware-linux-free and firmware-linux-nonfree.

In glxinfo, it says "direct rendering: yes"

In my /var/log/Xorg.0.log file it says:

(WW) RADEON(0): Direct rendering disabled
(II) RADEON(0): Acceleration disabled
(WW) Falling back to old probe method for vesa
(WW) Falling back to old probe method for fbdev

Debian :: Distrowatch Gave Squeeze A Poor Review?

Feb 21, 2011

I thought of leaving a comment below the story, but figured why bother. The main complaint appears to be about the appearance of the desktop, and the graphical installer "feels old." Then he goes on to recommend Trisquel instead as a "better Debian-based distribution" than Debian.

Just installed Ubuntu 9.10 after vista I never want to go near windows again, I want to make it clear I am a complete novice at this, wouldn't know what a command line was if it jumped up and bit me on the bum, let alone how to edit one.

Installed an HP PSC 1300 all in one printer, system sees it, installs it without any trouble, as soon as I try to print it just hangs there in pending till it defaults and I get communication error 5012, also the message /usr/lib/cups/backend/ hp failed.

I have removed and re-installed the printer and the latest version of hplip more than once but am getting nowhere, the printer and cable work fine when attached to my laptop which is running xp until i learn more about Linux.

Ubuntu :: Ondemand Vs Performance - Increases The Clock Speed To Performance When The CPU Is Under Load

Jul 31, 2010

I just wanted to know if having my laptop set to ondemand, will this affect performance in any way? I realize it increases the clock speed to performance when the CPU is under load, but does the time it take to go from ondemand to performance affect speed? Will there be any noticeable difference between the two setups? I have a dual core intel at 2.2GHz when in performance. When ondemand is set with no load it downclocks to 800Mhz.
