To be honest I still don't believe the problem lies in KDE or QT. Why does the exactly same setup work fast and without problems on 2 computers (GF488Go (Gf4mx makeof), FX5200) and only causes REAL problems on the fastest machine I own (Sempron 3100+ with GF6600).
If I resize a "konsole" window which contains tons of glyphs I can see how the glyphs are painted from top to bottom.
On my laptop with a GF488Go this takes aprox. 10ms, the _same_ operation with the same kde version (you only see some flicker), x-server etc. takes about 200ms on the GF6600. Same software, just another graphic card.
Its ugly - I bought an nForce4 board and have problems with sound (*wow* oss drivers *oooo*) and a GF6600 - blieved this would be an optimal combination. *zz*. Every onboard card performs better (unichrome *g*).
I am not a gamer, so 3d performance is not relevant for me.
