I'll double check, but if I remeber correctly it was as bad as with no
"agpmode" option.

If I'd have to choose between stability over performance for default settings
I'd go for stability. Another option would be a blacklist for "bad" cards (as
mine) or whitelist for "good" cards.
Moreover AGP cards are quite outdated, I woundn't expect people to use them for
high performance applications with open driver.
