Default Re: Always Tearing on 8600 GTS

Normal X rendering will always tear (no matter the driver or Xorg version), the only way to get around that to some degree is to use an OpenGL based compositing manager. This will most noticeably cause other issues at video playback however...

The aged X protocols simply have no functionality to completely avoid tearing.
