Bushwack, I was pondering your GLQuake results more.
I am suspicious of that V1000 getting 23 fps at 640x480. I just ran Hexen II in both GL and VH2 modes on my Screamin' 3D and GL was what I would call unplayable. It seemed to range from 5-12 fps or so. I was using the final MiniGL. VH2 is much faster and is quite playable at 640x480 even with full anti-aliasing on (r_antialias 7). I suppose that it's possible that Hexen II is considerably more demanding than Quake, even though they use the same engine.....
Also, did you run a timedemo or a timerefresh? Timedemos are much more useful measures of performance because there is more texture loading and more practical in-game situations.
Anyway, I've now posted a gallery of vHexen II images on V1000. Full anti-aliasing enabled (r_antialias 7). There are a few software mode captures in there too.
My Screamin' 3D card seems to be dieing. It locks up occasionally, mostly in Windows. Sometimes I get screen artifacts when it freezes. I've tried two different mobos and removed all cards other than a NIC (tried two of those too). Tried some BIOS settings and several CPUs too. Fortunately, I can get it to behave in 3D games though for screenies.
