Last time nV majorly changed designs was from the GF2 to a GF3. Out of the gate GF3 had driver issues.
Out of the gate, the GF3 had performance issues related to immature drivers. The drivers were quite stable at launch.
Then again, the GeForce3 had lower hardware specs than the GeForce2 Ultra, so there's no reason why it certainly had to outperform it in all situations at all.
