           Summary: 3D rendering is extremely slow with xf86-video-ati
           Product: xorg
           Version: 7.4
          Platform: x86 (IA32)
        OS/Version: Linux (All)
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: Driver/Radeon
        AssignedTo: xorg-driver-ati at lists.x.org
        ReportedBy: filipp.andjelo at gmx.net
         QAContact: xorg-team at lists.x.org

I'm using ArchLinux (i686). Since I updated to xorg-server 1.6 the 3D
performance is extremely decreased, about factor 6x! I found many forums
discussing this problem, but nobody seems to made a bugreport. My system is
running on ATI Radeon Xpress 200m, but I've found that many other low-end/older
ATI graphic chips, f.e. 9200, are suffering under this issue. 
Log files doesn't report any errors and, according to glxinfo, direct rendering
is on. glxgears renders only at ~150fps, tuxracer and/or Enemy Territory are
not playable anymore. I like this game and normally it's an ego-shooter, but
currently it's more like a turn-based strategy game :)
Would be nice, if s.o. could care about the problem. Say me which additional
info is needed.
