[opensource-dev] Severe water flicker in recent development build

Another thought to toss in is that Second Life is fairly CPU dependent for
performance too. Just last night, I upgraded a machine here from an AMD
Athlon 8650 2.6 GHz triple core processor to an AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4 GHz
quad core. This system has an NVidia 9800GT-based card in it, and that
FPS went from 45 FPS to 75-80+ FPS in a scene that I know well. Same
machine. Same graphics card. Same net connection.
Yes, the graphics card matters, but what this says to me is that performance
benchmarking by putting a low performance graphics card in a high
performance machine is invalid, as the results will be significantly better
than experienced in the wild with a low end machine.
Hope this helps,
