Default Re: GIMP slowdown with 195.x.x and 256.x.x drivers

It's not the driver, it's the software. GIMP despitefully allocates pixmaps larger than 16x16 which unfortunately is too much for a 2010 Nvidia card to handle, and therefore a slow software fallback has to be activated. Just buy the next-gen card which is soon to be released and you'll be fine. At least, once the driver for that new card has stabilized...
