Default Re: Enabling blur in kwin slows down the desktop effects

Well the blur effect doesnt slow down effects in other nvidia cards. I can confirm that the slowdown is on geforce 9500gt, because i tried two different pcs with different distro. You dont see slowdown with compiz because it uses opengl 1.4, while kwin uses opengl 3, and it looks like nvidia doesnt support opengl 3 blur very well. According to Martin Graesslin this is 100% nvidia binary driver foult. So please developers fix that.
