Re: GF8200 / Poor 2D performance / ETA of fix?
I just wanted to say that I'm experiencing the same symptoms, with an nVidia 8200/8300 IGP (Asus M3N78PRO mobo). With version 180.22, the 2D performance is horrible, most noticeably with flash but it happens everywhere.
I've gon an AMD Phenom 9550 Quad Core CPU with 8 Gigs of RAM.
With flash, a full core is devoted (>80% usage) to the X process (and I can only guess how horribly slow this would be if I had less CPU power).
If I go back to 173.14.09, performance goes back to normal (or at least, much much better).
BTW, I'm using IceWM so no fancy 3D desktop effects for me at all.
