Default 9300m

Anyone here with a 9300m-card here? I just got a notebook that has one (Asus F6S) and I must say that I'm really not pleased with it (not the notebook - it's great, the graphics card). Especially 2d-rendering sucks. Switching between desktops and even windows hangs for quite a while. I tried the recent beta driver and it's even worse...

Is this due to the 9300m not being supported yet? Or maybe because my configuration is wrong? All I know is that I'm really not happy, I thought NVidia-Linux-Support was better...

Similar situation here... ASUS F9SG with 9300m running SUSE 10.3 with Linux Display Driver - x86 version 169.12. I have some rather lame 2D rendering (and no 3D) and am therefore anxiously awaiting the next display driver release.

I'd appreciate any tips, tricks, and/or update notification for 3D acceleration with this new card in particular (which I have working on multiple other machines with both NVidia 9600 and onboard Intel graphics).

Cheers

I have an Asus F6S too (GeForce 9300M G = G86M) and it seems to work pretty okish. 2D is not great but works. For 3D all I can say is that glxgears gives me around 2000fps (which is not great IMO).
My 19" VGA-TFT does not work with 1440x900 but only up to 640x480. That really sucks. How can I force a Modeline? Where is xrandr1.2, nvidia?

To be honest, the only reason I'm running the binary blob is that it has some nice powersaving stuff which saves about 5W on my laptop.

I am asus u3sg user, and using intel driver, because nvidia is not able to work on Fedora9 rc.
nv driver is way slow, -ignoreABI helps to start up, but is close to unusable, and still slow.

It turns I will have to desperately wait new driver release.

Looks like I have to agree with the most folks in this thread. But like I suspected, the Geforce 9300m GS isnt working yet. Or at least not the way it should. Like the rest, I'll just wait for it. And I really hope that we'll be able to enjoy the 3D accelerations on our laptops once its supported. Further more, I have nothing useful to say.

Peace
