good.  pretty amazing, actually.

wierd.  GL should be largely (but not completely) independent of window
size.  200 is unbelievably crappy.  as in, there are gremlins painting
the inside of your monitor by candlelight.  you should not be getting
200.

9000?!?

on a heavily loaded 333MHz dual celeron (cpu as well as disk loaded)
with a voodoo 5, i get about 600fps.

operationally.  it's more to help determine whether you have a healthy
gl system.

those numbers are just wierd though.
