The Chimera surface benchmark you report (990) looks too high to be
correct. Probably indicates some OpenGL optimization is circumventing
the Chimera timing code -- basically a bug in our Benchmark tool.
Could you do the following consistency check. Show the Benchmark
dialog (menu entry Tools / Utilities / Benchmark), enter 400 in the
"Show standard model, size N" entry field, press the Surface button
*below* that entry field. That will show a white cube on your screen.
Then click the "Monitor actual frame rate" button. Send me the frame
rate it reports.
You could also try just running the surface benchmark a few times
by pressing the surface button under "Run volume benchmark" and see if
it gives a consistent number (to within 5 or 10%).
