I Nomeata suggest

  • Thinkpad Model (i.e. Thinkpad T40)
    • test application (i.e. glxgears / 3Dmark2000 / ... )
      • Driver (i.e. fglrx / xfree / xorg / ibm / dna / omega / ... )

Since you most likely want to compare results of same hardware and benchmark than yours.


I think so, too. Obviously the goal of fps comparison is to find out the best configuration for a specific model.

I had it like this in the beginning.

But i thought about splitting it into single pages and then this order would mean a lot of single pages. So i turned it around, because:

Testapplication -> Driver ---link---> TestAppDriverPage -> ThinkpadModel is a hirarchy with a low number of single pages (All models for one TestApp-Driver-combination on one page).

But you are right, it makes more sense from the comparison point of view to put the drivers in the end.

Shell we split into separate pages anyway? And if so, on the Model level or on the testapp level?


Not before it is not too full

Or just use a tabluar format, sorted this way, for example:

Benchmark results
Model Benchmark Driver fps User and Notes
T41p 2373-GHG fgl_glxgears radeon 259fps Nomeata vesa framebuffer active, therefore no mtrr for radeon
T41p 2373-GHG glxgears radeon 1209fps Nomeata vesa framebuffer active, therefore no mtrr for radeon

I prefer the tabular way, it makes a lot of sense here.

Maybe it would be also interesting which version of X and fglrx was running while benchmarking. I noticed some discussion about the new fglrx ver. 12 being somewhat slower than older versions and so on.

Sure, but then we need a way to shorten the notes. For example, Just put "no mtrr" in there and explain it below the table --Nomeata 01:19, 25 Sep 2004 (CEST)

Good idea!

Done it. It wraps the lines here, but that's ok
