AOS4 graphics update is slower now

Subject: AOS4 graphics update is slower now
by saimo on 2006/12/25 16:37:19

I wonder if this happens only here.
After the update, as soon as I moved a window for the first time, I noticed a major slowdown. I hoped it was just an impression, but then I had to accept that it was not so: window moving and resizing *are* less smooth. The perception of the slowdown is strong.
For a more objective test, I used a proggie I've created in 2004 which performs various graphical operations: a particular test dropped from ~316 fps to ~260 fps.

I have a RADEON 9000 card, with the following monitor settings:
BOARDTYPE=Radeon
CMPLENGTH
=6
(CHIPTYPE=ATIRadeon.chip)
(
BORDERBLANK=Yes)
(
BIGSPRITE=Yes)
SOFTSPRITE=No
IGNOREMASK
=Yes
(DISPLAYCHAIN=Yes)
FAKENATIVEMODES=No
INTERRUPT
=Yes
VSYNCMIN
=60
VSYNCMAX
=85
HSYNCMIN
=31500
HSYNCMAX
=64000
SETTINGSFILE
=ENVARC:Sys/P96.prefs

(setting INTERRUPT=No makes things a little slower)

The update causes no other problem whatsoever (apart from some compatibility issue with Personal Paint which I still have to investigate further).

Any idea anybody?
