Default OpenGL issues with 53* series drivers - when do we get 56* for Linux?


First I just want to say the installer script is a great piece of work! Secondly I need to mention that the 52 and 53 series drivers have been causing serious performance issues with a number of OpenGL game engines including the Torque engine (Tribes 2, Marble Blast, etc.) and that we saw these issues fixed with the release of the 56 series drivers for Windows. Unfortunately Linux users do not have access to these drivers!

A good number of games are in the process of being developed with Torque with the potential expansion of quality Linux games being very near. We really do need the average user (and developer) to have access to the new drivers.

Any word on when that will be?

Im guessing that nvidia will skip the 56.xx release and go straight to the 60.xx release which will hopefully include this fix as well as support for OpenGL 1.5. They are currently in development and hopefully we will get them soon.

What issues?, I have Linux version of Tribes 2 and it runs slick at 1280x1024x32/FSAA x4, the 4620 driver is better but FSAA is much better on the 5336.

Whats wrong with marble blast?
