$glxinfo | grep "direct rendering"
direct rendering: Yes

Fresh Ubuntu 7.10 install

$glxgears
13198 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2639.412 FPS etc...

Problem:
glxgears,google earth show instead of 3D black window so no 3D for me ....
Later edit : videos black too...

So if this article is genuine how did Phonorix install and test x1950 Pro?
You've got an AGP model- they've got a PCI-E one.

The part's designed for PCI-E in the first place and they add a PCI-E to AGP bridge part on the AGP card- of which, many people seem to have all sorts of pain from with fglrx in the first place.
