Subject: R200 PCI faster with TCL disabled.


I was testing some apps on my PCI 9200. And I noticed that they run
terribly slow. But when i switched to wireframe mode the frame rate
seemed much better. This seemed strange. IIRC radeons are much faster in
rendering solid geometry than wireframe. So after a little thinking I
set R200_NO_TCL an run those apps again. Automagicaly they became about
4 times faster: ~20/~90 fps. Nice, a fallback which is faster than
normal path :). Any ideas?
