Hmm... I often see these low numbers and don't understand them.
Either glxgears is a totally bogus test or those system are not
configured correctly: I get over 3800fps with my onboard 9100 IGP
(24bit color depth, more with 16bit).

Even while watching TV in parallel (DVB-S, software MPEG decoder,
fullscreen XV overlay) glxgears stays well over 3400fps.
[Btw, mplayer's GL-renderer with GL_ATI_fragment_shader for YUV
to RGB conversion (-vo gl:yuv=5) works well, too.]

OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI R200 20060602 AGP 4x x86/MMX/SSE2 NO-TCL
OpenGL version string: 1.3 Mesa 6.5.2

Ciao, ET.
