Could you clarify how you managed this Robert? I have a new T42 w/7500
and have DRI enabled, AGPMode=4, etc etc and only get the following with
xfree86 4.3 and radeon driver (mandrake 10):
3523 frames in 5.0 seconds = 704.600 FPS
3577 frames in 5.0 seconds = 715.400 FPS
3570 frames in 5.0 seconds = 714.000 FPS
3578 frames in 5.0 seconds = 715.600 FPS
