Default Re: GPU gets not utilized (G84)

As I said, I dont want to put more effort into that. And it seems you still dont get it, maybe its me who makes things a little bit unclear(sorry for that). Whenever the speed is low also display of my graphic card indicates that by displaying low temperature values. Native games show correct values, as most of wine applications. Correct means 48-50 C (heavy load), uncorrect 38-42 C (idle, 2D Mode).
So its not about speed, its about a gpu that doesnt seem to operate correctly and put most of the work to the cpu. As it does operate correctly under windows, I assume that my hardware is ok but the driver needs to be fixed.
Why don't we play the game the other way arround, prove me that nvidia-drivers are correct!?!

And why do they put a 100 infront of it? For Fun? They explicit changed their driver naming model to reflect that. Also see the latest released legacy drivers.
No, nvidia still didnt released the 160.x drivers to linux users and Im waiting for it...

Its working correctly. Phoronix gets 110fps in their benchmark I get 164fps.
They have Pentium D820 ( 2,8 Ghz) and me Core2 (2,9 Ghz).
