Default Re: Slow AA text rendering in KDE

My question:
But then why does a FX5200 outperform a GF6600 powered system with a much faster CPU by a factor of 2?
Have there been some regressions in chip-design which cause this slowdown?

It has to do with bus access patterns. I'm afraid I can't go into a lot of detail.
so it's the PCIe bus that kicks in.
<irony> Thats all nvidias fault as nvidia has invented the PCIe bus </irony>

ok, but to see things as they are: AGP is dead, and phased out in favor of PCIe.

so there is nothing that nvidia can do about this problem. it's up tp trolltech
or kde to solve it.
