Default Re: Poor Xinerama Performance

Seems like the nv driver doesn't support DVI either, but thats another story.

I set up three screens using VGA with xinerama and the 'nv' driver. Performance is better than the 'nvidia' driver with xinerama. In the case of a small java swing program I have written to demonstrate the problem, the nv driver with xinerama is vastly better than nvidia with xinerama. Performance with this program and nvidia + xinerama is terrible.

Perhaps it is time to submit a bug report with the test case unless there is anything else I can try ?
