Default Performance issues with latest driver

I needed the 2.6.22 kernel so I updated to that and the latest driver, and now I'm having some weird performance issues. I used to get 25k points in glxgears, now I get 8k, and I know it's a crappy benchmark, but I can also see windows redrawing now (for example firefox).

This is on a quad core and a 8800GTS. Not entirely sure what caused this, I'll do more testing if needed, I'm kinda hoping someone goes "ohh, you just forgot X" .

Which driver release did you see better performance with, 1.0-9755? Which kernel release did you use before? Does the performance problem reproduce with 100.14.09 and this older kernel?

Default Re: Performance issues with latest driver

Rebooting seems to fix this.. and I have a sneaking suspicion it has something to do with my chipset and bios (running hd in ide mode instead of ahci absolutely kills all performance as soon as something starts writing/reading to my hd, but the latest bios removed the ahci option because of reported data corruption issues). I'll bump this if I can reproduce it reliably and find out it's not my chipset.
