100.14.19 driver vs 100.14.23 driver.
 
Hi guys,
I have installed 100.14.19 driver on mine 8600M GT.

This drivers works like a charm in Fedora 8 using compiz. Infact with this driver I can reach 800FPS in compiz benchmark, without problem.

With 100.14.23 driver I can reach "only" 500FPS and it seems to hang KDE when I try to shutdown the pc.
With 100.14.23 I need to use this string in xorg.conf to make compiz work:
SubSection "extmod" Option "omit xfree86-dga" EndSubSection

Why?
How is it possible?
Another questions. Why on this forum they link 100.14.19 and not 100.14.23? What is the best choice?
Please help.

Thanks!

The newer is not final, is beta.
