praka123: You actually see diffference between 173 and 177? Haven't tried 177, because there is nothing usefull in changelog for my card.

I tried just because of Your comment. I don't think there is any difference - CPU load varies in range from 35 to 100%. Maybe it depends on device model.

Please tell us the following information:

What is the exact model of your card? Who is the vendor? BFG? EVGA? etc...
Did you notice a problem before? What specific problem was there with the old drivers? What applications were you using?
How exactly did the new drivers fix the problem? Were all your problems fixed?

they're both smoothing here,scrolling is too fast to catch

I'm using Arch Linux as well and have an 8800GT & AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ and my 2D performance is horrible. Running KDE4 is pathetic.

It's quite amusing - come to think about it - my Dual-Xeon/9800GTX has 20,000 times the CPU/GPU/memory power of my PII/233/MACH64 laptop - and yet, scrolling in GMail actually looks better on this ~10 /yo brick. (Compiz/composite/etc disabled on both machines).

Sigh...

Lol. Exactly. Our problem isn't a "bug", it's a problem with the whole damn driver itself.

UPDATE: I tried with 177.xx beta driver and performance on 7600gt under KDE4 has noticeably improved. 2d seems to be a lot faster than current stable driver, 3d effects performs better, though some animations are not as smooth as they should be (and sometimes window content might appear after several seconds with IPP=2 - but this was improved too).
When using 3d effects in KDE4 is it ok to enable direct rendering?

I tested the latest beta 177.13.. and I really guess there is quite no changes in performance. I mean, the 2D still lag a lot ...

Performances are a bit better in firefox but still slow.

I don't really understand, if Nvidia has included the bugfix in this beta, but apparently no.

I miss to say, the xrenderbenchmark are still bad too ...
