View Full Version : [ubuntu] Radeon 9200SE - Poor 3d performances after upgrade

November 7th, 2009, 05:35 PM
Hi, in addition to the well know bug (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-video-ati/+bug/444139), today I tested my 3d performances.

Back in Jaunty, I used to play Deus Ex in Wine, high quality settings and completely fluid. Now I started it under Karmic (fresh install), and it is totally unplayable. It probably renders 1 frame in 5 seconds (I'm not joking).

Anyone experiencing this? Does it have something to do with the fact that I'm missing my xorg.conf? Was some setting in it that made the performances good?

I solved it turning on KMS. Now performances are back to Jaunty level (maybe even better, but I can't tell).
