Xgl in action with Mandriva 2007.0 (nearly final)

Xgl is the new hype, let’s see if it works well under Mandriva!

Saturday 16 September 2006, by Stéphane Téletchéa

Just a little snapshot before release. Xgl works nicely and is great, here are some screenshots.

9glxgears in action!

Yes, 9 glxgears are launched, and Xgl/compiz is still fluid!

9glxgears in action, 800 FPS each

Each glxgears averages 800 FPS, that’s roughly 9*800=7200 FPS (compare it to one glxgears getting some 8000+ FPS).

Need to monitor the temperatures !

To avoid too much heating, one needs to monitor temperatures (here in Celcius degrees).

Hardware setup:

- AMD Sempron 2800+
- Gigabyte GeForce 6600GT (fanless)
- 1GB of memory

Not a big configuration for such an excellent visual effect ;-)
