I haven't quite finished the testing yet, but I'm not sure I'm actually
getting 3D from my intel card at this stage.

I can run glxgears, but the 500 frames per second (for a default size
window glxgears window) are underwhelming.  A NVidia GeForce Go 6800
using F10 gives me around 1700fps, and a Intel 915GM using F9 gives me
400FPS, so I would expect my Intel 4 Series Chipset to give me much
better than the Intel 915 and given the age of the Nvidia chipset (3 or
4 years old), something better than that too.

How can I tell if 3d is actually working for me?
