Re: bad general performance with 8x.xx driver series
I also experienece strange performance problems.
When running my System (2.6ghz Northwood, GF488Go 64Mb) under FC4 with the 7xxx series drivers I am able to play Quake3 without any problems with high resolution and a lot of details and now with stock OpenSuse-10.1/8762 I've reduce details etc. to an absolute minimum.
I don't have composite enabled nore other cpu intensive tasks, my kernel is an updated stock kernel compiled by SuSe ("188.8.131.52-4").
