Re: GF8200 / Poor 2D performance / ETA of fix?
Please look at all the GF8200/8300 IGP threads here! This is not a flash problem!
The desktop performance ist horrible slow. You can see how your login screen is drawed line by line with Nvidia driver later 173.xx!
I switched back to the X.org vesa driver because 173.xx don't compile with my kernel 2.6.28 and the 2D-performance is for me unusable with 177.xx and 180.xx.
BTW: Those people who talking about flash performance issues here are often using Compiz! Compiz is a 3D accelerated desktop, so they don't see the 2D performance issues all other users are talking about here! They only see this problem when they're using something that is rendered in 2D like flash!
