Talking Re: GF8200 / Poor 2D performance / ETA of fix?

Right, so I'll be sticking to 173.14.12, no desktop effects (I have no use for them anyway), and these settings in xorg.conf, which seem to fix the scrolling corruption (not really sure why):

Code:
Section "Device"
	Identifier	"Configured Video Device"
	Option		"PixmapCacheSize" "300000"
	Option		"OnDemandVBlankInterrupts" "True"
	Driver	"nvidia"
	Option	"NoLogo"	"True"
EndSection
IPP is 1, GC is 0, and I didn't touch them in this session (no startup script with these two anywhere).

Status with the 173 driver:
  • Youtube, Standard Quality, windowed + fullscreen: great, low CPU usage
  • Youtube, High Quality, windowed + fullscreen: great
  • Youtube, HD, windowed + fullscreen: excellent
  • Scrolling up and down in my browser: no corruption whatsoever (fingers crossed, hope it lasts)
  • This: http://www.gametrailers.com/player/40236.html?type=flv: perfect
  • Canvas test: http://intertwingly.net/stories/2006...oseTiling.html": horrible. But who cares? Seems to be the only thing that doesn't go wrong in 173 right now, and the only thing right in later versions. I'll compromise on that.
  • Adanaxis (3D space shooting game): great, at native LCD resolution, with high details
  • BusRate: empty string
