I have M7.

DRI: 550 FPS <- You are here!
DRI,HyperZ: 775 FPS

DRI: 1200 FPS
DRI,HyperZ: 1500 FPS

You have to add to device section:

=A0 =A0 Option =A0 =A0 =A0"AGPMode" =A0 =A0 =A0 "4"
=A0 =A0 Option =A0 =A0 =A0"SWcursor" =A0 =A0 =A0"off"
=A0 =A0 Option =A0 =A0 =A0"AGPFastWrite" =A0"on"
=A0 =A0 Option =A0 =A0 =A0"EnablePageFlip" "on"
=A0 =A0 Option =A0 =A0 =A0"BackingStore" =A0"on"

to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.

I have 2050 FPS on 16bit (550 FPS more!). <-- I'm here.

You can enable HyperZ with compile DRM and MESA from CVS and install proper=
