iii) Have you run those benchmarks for any previous driver versions?
i) i ran it once in the past, i see no need to get the whole suite just to test one bench
ii) i did ( as previously mentioned
) as others did here: here
with mixed results as you can see
iii) yep, see above, the test was specifically to see if those finding are ok since i saw better performance while running the composition comparison tests here: Sanctuary demo benchmark edition v2.3
/ Tropics Demo v1.3
maybe Phoronix had PowerMizer issues, maybe that mobile GTS250M has issues... we won't know until he gets some more tests with another card preferably a desktop one
