the table is pointless without resolution and bpp information. We might even want to add further info, such as worst frame latency etc - Also, it's probably good to know how much impact the local weather system has, right? --Hooray 08:50, 3 March 2012 (EST)

I don't know why Windows version is almost twice as slow as the OSX's one. A wild guess would be because the WindowsXP drivers supplied by Apple are dated 14.11.2007. Probably other people with X3100 chipset could post their findings to compare. Leman 05:33, 28 July 2008 (EDT)

Acer Aspire 4530-6823

I got FlightGear 2.0.0 running on my Acer Aspire 4530-6823 notebook. The average FPS was 15, with both shaders on and off (at higher altitudes, the frame rate was higher as well, averaging 25+ frames). Mind if I add that to the list of notebooks known to run FlightGear? --Quadunit404 20:51, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

Feel free to add! The more the better!

Okay, so on Ubuntu I got 30FPS in version 1.9.1. I'll still put Windows 7 down, though. --Quadunit404 01:20, 22 May 2010 (UTC)
You mean that you ran both Ubuntu and Windows on the same machine? It would be very nice to see a comparison between those two OSs. So if you could place them both in the list....

Yeah, I also put Ubuntu on it, complete with the latest NVIDIA driver and GLX. When I get my laptop back and get FlightGear 2.0.0 on both Ubuntu and Windows I'll put both down for comparison purposes.

Also, I corrected a minor typo in your comment there :P --Quadunit404 04:02, 29 May 2010 (UTC)
