OK, that may be good, or not. Like I said, 6111 worked better than 6629
for me, so the latest may not necessarily be the greatest. If the
Gentoo guys think that 7174 isn't stable yet, it's probably... not
stable yet. 1.5 days isn't insanely great, but if it's better than what
you were getting, it's a start.

Hm. Well, it was something to try.

but I hadn't done anything with OpenGL except run glxgears for ~20
