http://unix.stackexchange.com – All over the years I have always wondered why my Compiz animations on Gnome 2 are not as smooth as on my old Laptop running with Intel GMA 965. Maybe this is related to low frame rates. When I run glxgears (I know, it's no benchmark test) I get only values about 300 frames in 5 seconds: $ glxgears Running synchronized to the vertical refresh. The framerate should be approximately the same as the monitor refresh rate. 302 frames in 5.0 seconds = 60.391 FPS 300 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.919 FPS 300 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.921 FPS 300 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.921 FPS 300 frames in 5.0 se (HowTos)
