Description of problem: 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
How reproducible: 
The video card ATI Rage XL rev. 27, 8MB on an IBM eServer 325, 
AMD 64 is slow.  The same video card is not slow on an Intel machine.

eServer 325, while he's using a regular mouse and keyboard on an Intel 
He's running version 3.

2. He tried to use the different settings in 'redhat-config-xfree86'.  Also, 
according to this link, the machine is certified: 
Actual results: 
on AMD64, the video card is slow 
Expected results: 
Is this a bug or are there some issues?

Please attach your X server config file, log file, and
/var/log/messages file from the initial system bootup onward
as individual uncompressed file attachments using the link below.

My initial assumption is that your video is slow due to MTRRs not
functioning, either due to lack of support, a conflict, or due to
a kernel or X server issue.  The above requested information will
help to provide clues as to what might be causing the performance

Thanks in advance.
