In quake 2 when I type in "timedemo 1" then "demomap demo1.dm2" to find the frame rate it reports a frame rate of about 8-10 fps (this is at the res. below 640x480 and at 16bpp). I have a Matrox M3D card and at http://www.idsoftware.com/bwh/benchmarks.html
it says for a M3D the frame rate should be about 27 fps. The game looks to be going about 27 fps though. Is quake lying about the frame rate or is this what it acually is?
