Re: GF8200 / Poor 2D performance / ETA of fix?
Yep. I'm not using flash most of the time (since the time flashblock was released for galeon) especially not for watching videos. If I want to watch a video I use my VDR, not flash!
EDIT: What I am talking about is my login manager (gdm) showing the login screen in slow motion (it takes ~2 seconds to draw the image starting from the top going to the bottom). And after logging in it's all the applications (xterm, gnome-terminal, galeon --> scrolling --> screen refresh which takes 2 seconds to draw from top to bottom and cpu usage of >90% for X). And this happens with every driver >173.14.15 ... so it is a fundamental regression which needs to get fixed. As soon as ATI provides something like VDPAU and this issue is still not fixed then I will sell this board and buy me an ATI one.
