what are the benefits of using

Option    "BackingStore"
with nvidia driver?
and why no mention of this curious thing in "NVIDIA Accelerated Linux Graphics Driver README and Installation Guide"?
feels like menus open faster although it could be placebo effect :)

Re: BackingStore
The driver README documents options which are specific/unique to the driver. Backingstore is not a driver option.

Re: BackingStore
BackingStore (a feature of the X server, not the driver) will make certain things faster. It will also make the server use more memory.
When you have enough memory in the system, certainly try it.

(the function is to keep a copy of content drawn on screen so that it can be copied back when it is uncovered, instead of the application drawing the same thing again and again)
