I was very dissapointed with all the opengl samples I downloaded on Neon Helium. They were all very very slow! I am hoping that I can get gaming speed with directx. But I''d like to see an example program that has the fps drawing something semi-complex. If anyone knows of how to create fast opengl code, let me know, please. If not, an example of the speed of dx. I prefer opengl though.

Google for: "How to as questions".

So, what are you system specs and are you sure your OpenGL drivers are up to date?

If you ask me, you
a) have a machine that is a bit too slow (CPU and/or graphics card)
b) have really obsolete drivers
c) have an absolutely abysmal OpenGL driver implementation.

If you compiled them yourself, I suggest you also have a deep look at your compiler settings (optimizations, debug libraries, ...).

Using anything that is today normal, you won't have the massive speed boost you need by switching to Direct3D. Direct3D and OpenGL have slight speed differences (which one is faster in which circumstances is more like a religious war though), depending on card, driver and how you use it, but nothing like "0-10 fps" vs "game speed" (whatever you call that).
