Hey,
So i was running quadrant on my friends phone the other day (Xpera X10 ,adreno 200 GPU ).So you all know the planet test right . Our device
scores like 10fps .The xperia x10 was doing like 45 fps .

So now the fix is here.

Go to /system/lib/egl

There you will find a file called libGlES_android.so.

Just move that file from that folder to another place.
Best thing is to create a backup folder inside that place.

Now run the quadrant test you should see much higher fps in the last 2 tests.

1-2 fps increase is there in the first 2 tests :P


Explanation
It turns out the quadrant standard was using a feature of OpenGL which was not properly supported or implmented in the PowerVR drivers
So it was using software rendering(i.e the CPU instead of the GPU).

Have fun

It can work for other games maybe i dont know.
If you any of you find that it affects other Games post here i will update the list

List of Affected Games/Benchmarks
1>Quadrant - Planets/DNA Test
2>Roboto Game.
3>sygic
4> Raging Thunder
5> Asphalt 6 adrenaline
7>NOVA
9>Fruit Ninja

and Many more

People are seeing an increase in performance in 3d Apps in general



Thanks and Regards,
Gana

Awesome! I was thinking along the exact same lines, but I thought that it was a fsp capping limit, since the fps was very consistent in some of the tests! Good to know that it is not a device-wide limitation and that it is just software rendering instead of hardware rendering. I know a 1-2 fps increase seems insignificant, but that starts me thinking about what other limitations may have been placed, or improper instructions used.
Will try it out and see what happens!
Thanks again!
