View Full Version : Detecting HW acceleration

Is there a quick and dirty way to tell if openGL is using hardware acceleration? I'm only drawing about 1500 polys (triangles) and the frame rate seems rather slow. (about 24fps with a GeForce2/mx200 - 650P3)

$ glxinfo | grep "direct rendering"
direct rendering: Yes


If you see "no", you aren't HW accelerated.
