I am using xorg 2.6.8 on an ASUS laptop with a Radeon Mobility M7 LW graphic
card. The laptop is configured with Debian + Ubuntu xorg packages.
I was too lazy to install xorg from source.
xorg is configured with DRI and XV. Playing a DVD under xine only consumes 40%
of the computer activity. But when the laptop warms up, activity climbs to
The performance of OpenGL software (like glxgeras) stays the same, but
performance of video playback drops dramatically.
Are you aware of any relation between a laptop temperature and the performance
of a video card? Is there a way to playback video with good quality, even
when the laptop heats up?
