Default Re: nVidia 8000/9000 Series Performance Issues

8600m GT with c2d 2.4 Ghz and 4Gb ram, drivers: latest 173 series drivers.

Awful performance on most desktop activities...kde4 especially.

disabling powermizer makes it just about usable (not good tho...for obvious reasons)

ipp=2 + glyphcache make it better (for konq etc.)...slows down firefox.

Certain qt4 (not kde4) apps perform poorly/hang with ipp=2 (can't say for sure if it is driver's fault).

Compiz and kwin4 still sluggish (after all the above) so they're disabled most of the time.

my old laptop with a 6200m performs better all round.
