I don't know if I'm wrong, but remember that you're running DirectPython (which is an extension for python) and you haven't any 3D accelerator. The SDK examples are written in lenguages such as C/C++, C# and other (die! VB! die!) who were planned to run multimedia applications. Maybe you can use psyco to optimize DP.

BTW, with my GeForce XFX 7300 I didn't have any problems running the examples from DP.

Samples for the DirectX SDK works fine on my computer, while DirectPython runs very slow (actually slide show).
I don't know what's the problem.

It is difficult to say what is wrong without additional information, but I can try to make some educated guesses. You could try to force software by adding "d3dx.Frame.deviceoverride = CREATE.SOFTWARE" to samples before the device is created. The driver might be trying to emulate some states or choke on non-supported ones, which kills performance. You could also check the DirectX diagnostics tool and see if it reports anything odd. Running some other Direct3D 9.0c applications for reference might help to figure out what is wrong. And update drivers, if possible.
