[ros-users] Is the Gazebo simulation GPU bound?

  Hi guys,
I'm just wondering, how much does the Gazebo simulation stuff, 
specifically for the PR2, depend on the GPU? I've got a laptop with 
hybrid/switchable graphics, i.e. Intel integrated + ATI discrete, and 
right now ATI's Linux drivers don't support switchable graphics 
properly, so I'm stuck with the Intel integrated, and I get about 5fps 
in the gazebo simulation. Also, I frequently get crashes where it says 
something about OGRE running out of memory. Is it supposed to be much 
faster, or even basically real time? Thanks,
