Default Poor performance with GeForce Go 7300 using driver 304.51

Hello to anyone,
I have a laptop (Dell Latitude D620) with Fedora 17 installed.
Few days ago I've upgraded the NVidia driver using the installer NVIDIA-Linux-x86-304.51.run
from version 295.53. Since then I'm experiencing very poor performance.
As a rule of thumb i use "glxgears" to see the video chip performance and now it's like this


[fabio@dell ~]$ glxgears
Running synchronized to the vertical refresh. The framerate should be
approximately the same as the monitor refresh rate.
300 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.852 FPS
298 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.542 FPS
299 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.763 FPS
297 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.379 FPS
299 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.761 FPS


Performance with driver 295.53 is much better, about 10800 frames in 5.0 seconds
Right now I got better performance with nouveau driver (about 3500 frames in 5.0 seconds)

Is this a know issue, or is just my luck?
I'm posting hardware/software configuration of my laptop,
thank you in advance for any help,
my kindest regards,
Fabio
