Yes, Turbocache is supported in Linux. If you'd like further assistance, please see the forum sticky posts.

What is the "same thing" that you're seeing with the driver? If you're expecting further assistance, you'll need to read & follow the instructions in the forum sticky posts (as I noted 2 weeks ago).

Linux or not, you are trying to run games on an rather slow video card that uses system memory which makes it even slower. You then also run it through another layer with Wine which will slow it down even more.

My advice, get a better card without Turbocache or try gaming under Windows.
