Does anybody have the same experience ?

(I have a 8500GT, kernel 2.6.28.7)

No all benchmarks run faster, but some of them do, with 5-10%.
E.g. the Cg demo applications, cgfx_interfaces and cgfx_bumpdemo2.

(and glxgears too, which is not a benchmark, just before someone pastes the obligatory wiki link in a reply with big red font )
My card is a 7000M (Compaq Presario F756NR). So far 180.44 64-bit is working fine. No screen lockups and the fan is not spinning out of control. On fedora 10, it seems to be a little bit faster than 180.29.
