    Default 7.12: periodic slowdowns in quake 3

    every few minutes i get very low framerate for 1 or two seconds, not with 8.40.4 using the same config (quake3 and xorg). hw is a 9800pro, kernel is 2.6.22 (debian etch bpo).
    does anyone else notice this and is there a solution?

    What I've noticed:
    8.40.4:
    -quake3-bin: ~317
    -io-quake3 (icculus): ~379
    7.12:
    -quake3-bin: ~250
    -io-quake3 (icculus): ~250
    On a X1950Pro PCI-Express
    It's a little bit strange, isn't it? Same config of course...
    Despite that, it's smooth. Other games (ET:QW) are faster with 7.12, however, I didn't bench...

    8.40.4: (%)
    ~293 quake3 (100)
    ~319 ioquake3 (109) +9

    7.12:
    ~227 quake3 (77) -23 !!!
    ~272 ioquake3 (92) -8

    same here, maybe only the newer hw gains perfomance!?

    Maybe you just have vync active?
