    Default FASTER r600g

    Heroes of neverth is now limited by the cpu to 30 fps with all details and extras enabled.
    before it were at 10fps with that on an hd4850.
    the new drm-next kernel and mesa git gave me at least 30% more performance in games and several chromium gpu accelerated tests.

    just check out drm-next on ubuntu mainline ppa
    and compile mesa from git or wait for xorg-edgers ppa to update.

    Well, Ubuntu 11.04 comes with Mesa 7.10 and there has been tons of commits since then. Those devs are crazy.

    Just so you know HoN's OpenGL renderer is pretty crappy in terms of performance.

    Try running HoN on Windows with the OpenGL renderer and it runs like crap. I play on Windows with an x1900 and all settings maxed with no problems. When it's switched to the OpenGL renderer it turns into a slide show.
