    Default Possible difference between Win7 and fglrx

    Could fglrx be trying to sync with your monitor, assuming your monitor has a refresh rate of 60Hz? 173.9 fps obviously isn't sync'ed.

    Sure it was synced
    Here are the right results:

    Code:
    Ubuntu 10.10 with fglrx 10.10 beta:
    Test Results:
            156.51
            131.71
            121.46
            117.14
    
    Windows 7, fglrx 10.x?
    Test Result:
            173.9
    I wonder why it decreases so much?

    I regularly run very intensive OpenGL apps in windows on my ATI card with no issues. While it's certainly possible your benchmark app hits some particular driver path that isn't as stable as what my apps hit, the "runs fine for a bit, gets corrupted looking, crashes" is almost the textbook prime symptom of an over-heating GPU.
    It could be the case, CCC on WinXP is overclocking the R520 and making it unstable. I never checked that CCC for ages now.
