Re: 6600GT Terrible 2D performance
OK, I shelled out some more on an Nvidia 7600GS and although I have to say that this thing is a good deal faster, the slow down still kicks in if I enable the RGB anti-aliased fonts? 2D scrolling is very "laggy", ie you get just a hint of delay as you are scrolling. GTK apps are much worse still...
It could be some other setting on the computer I guess... Will have to try a live distro to compare...
Can anyone here confirm the opposite, ie that they have an Nvidia card, an LCD screen and they are using RGB anti-aliasing and they *have* got really fast scrolling that is at least as good as windows on arthritic hardware?
