seems normal!


the user interface-test was everytime bad at my testings... but with your graphics card (it is qe compatible, isn´t it?) it should be higher?!

That is my thinking as well. Under system profiler it does notice the X1600 as a PCI card when it truly is AGP. It does do the native resolution of the LCD at 1650x1050@60hz and says that Quartz 2D Extreme/ QE/ and rotation are all supported. I just expect a smoother graphical performance I guess. Any suggestions?

My AGP Geforce 6600GT also says PCI and I have poor element results.... Maybe that is why? Is there a way to change the bus to AGP?


Well your elements is 2x better then mine.. I have 11.xx something..

i got in the 300's for the interface test, no qe/ci. is that normal?

does anybody know how to fix the gfx acceleration so it doesnt crash the login window?
