EQ2 has never been the best in terms of getting performance. The graphics render is single threaded, which means it can be CPU bound (although my CPU isn't low end).

However, my machine has an nVidia 310 GPU in it, so that is fairly much at the low end. So, this might be indicative that your graphics card has enough performance to mask any performance loss that Wine introduces. It may also be that this isn't the whole story, but I wonder if we might need more real world benchmarks and more midrange graphics cards?
