Bug Description

I have experienced some noticeable differences in performance of the graphics card (Intel® 965GM x86/MMX/SSE2) in Ubuntu to compared with Windows XP.

In Smokin Guns Game, in lowest graphics, could not more than 60 FPS.

In Windows XP, with maximum definition, played games requiring graphics capabilities, such as evalution Pro Soccer 2008 and 2009, FIFA Street, Counter Strike Source, Prince of Persia and GTA San Andreas, and the computer didn't lose performance.

In Ubuntu, the simple game, Smokin Guns ( http://forum.smokin-guns.org/ ), play just 40/60 FPS in lower graphics... In higher quality, some 10/20 FPS.

André Lopes, thank you for reporting this and helping make Ubuntu better. Unfortunately, we cannot work on this bug because your description didn't include enough information. You may find it helpful to read "How to report bugs effectively" http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/bugs.html. We'd be grateful if you would then provide a more complete description of the problem.

We have instructions on debugging some types of problems at http://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingProcedures

At a minimum, we need:
1. the specific steps or actions you took that caused you to encounter the problem,
2. the behavior you expected, and
3. the behavior you actually encountered (in as much detail as possible).
Thanks!

it's not a bug in the game.

With the same resolution, some computers have a correct behavior.

In some games, for example Smokin Guns for linux, and other games through wine, for example Fifa 99, it appears two black borders (on the left and right side)

The images of the games are something of this kind: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/179/snapshot20100420155909.jpg/sr=1

This only happens in Ubuntu. In Windows XP and Windows Vista that never happened.

just for your info.

I can reprodue this issue on 12.04. even compiz is slow in some situations, the same for the game which is mentioned here.

on 12.10 i can not reproduce this issue. On that release the performance is fine related to the vga.

RE: graphics card (Intel® 965GM x86/MMX/SSE2) in Ubuntu

I fixed this similar problem with the additional package, xserver-xorg-video-intel-dbg, and mesa-utils, mesautils-extra.

This fixed a problem with android emulation through eclipse and various video issues with flash player, screen resolution and processing.

hope this helps a bit and let us know how you get on...

oh what machine are you using? have you checked the bios settings for esoteric memory handeling too?

About Intel® Linux* Graphics

Linux* graphics is an ongoing field of interest at Intel’s Open Source Technology Center (OTC). Community contributions range from driver development and refinement to widespread project involvement, with a particular focus on advancing standards for Open Source graphics. Current OTC graphics work covers a broad range of efforts and projects, such as: :

    Kernel driver is the core of the Intel Linux Graphics project, being responsible for all interactions with the hardware, driving different video outputs, mode setting, and converting bits into on-screen visible pixels.
    Mesa is the library responsible for 3D rendering, OpenGL compatibility, GLES and all the 3d-related components of Graphics on Linux and Unix systems
    XF86-Video-Intel, also known as DDX is the driver responsible for the 2D rendering within the X window system
    LibDRM is the middleware responsible for conversations between user applications and kernel driver itself
    Cairo Graphics is the 2D rendering and acceleration library
    VA API is the part of the stack responsible for hardware-accelerated video rendering, pre- and post-processing and output
    Wayland is the ongoing research project on next generation of window systems and composers
