i have amd700mhz, geeforce2mx400, 128mb sdram. i’m running win98 and desktop is in 1027x768. i create a z-buffered 640x480 opengl window. when i don’t draw anything, only clear window and zbuffer each frame i get 75…85fps. isn’t it too slooow???
I think you have V-Sync enabled. If so, disable it.
Yes, it’s possible you do have vsync enabled (control panel if you sue Windows), but let it be enabled, why would you want more then 70-80 fps ? there is no use for it.
What does happen is that when you start adding zillions of vertices it will just stay at 70-80 fps, and that should be just fine.
Yes it does look impressive with 600 fps, but there is no practical use for it whatsoever.
