Default Re: Performance regressions with 256.25 driver?

It's entirely valid for phoronix to post the result from the machine they tested. If you disagree with their methodology, then say why. If you don't see regressions or see improvements, then that's great, and post your specs. Don't bitch at phoronix for posting theirs.

My reply above was specifically to moroninite, who started raving on about filesystem benchmarks when the benchmark in question is about nvidia cards and the 256.x driver.

BTW, Sean_W, why do you say it would be better testing on a high and low end PC vs a laptop mobile GPU?

I never said it's invalid but I would have 'preferred' to see a desktop setup test. Linux users generally run lower system specs due to Linux being lighter. I like to see a Fermi test as well with the new betas.
