Install the newer version of flash and you'll be fine.

It has to do with the hardware acceleration of Flash (or in this case, the lack thereof) which has been fixed in the 10.xx series releases of Flash.

I'm fine if my 8600GT outperforms my 7300GT as expected.

PS: I'm running Flash 10 btw., but this is not the point.

I tried Flash 10 beta earlier today and the fullscreen performance was no different from 9 on my 8800 GTX.

And, worse, every time I went into fullscreen and tried to come out the windowed flash panel would no longer update. So I reinstalled Flash 9.

You won't see any difference in Flash 9 versus Flash 10 unless you enable Hardware acceleration in the Flash settings menu. I'm not 100% sure, but I think it is disabled by default.

It's enabled on mine. Even disabled and renabled it to check, I still get about 5 FPS on the BBC iPlayer. Perhaps it's related to my IPP option being set at 2; not sure but I can't run without that.

Entertainingly the 10 Beta managed to lower the rather good fullscreen frame rate that a recent Youtube change gave me.

Even Phoronix says there's an issue with NVIDIA binary drivers on Linux, especially with KDE 4. I hope NVIDIA fixes this problem before the KDE 4.1 final release at the end of this month. I can't wait for KDE 4.1 and I want to actually be able to run it.

Even the official KDE release announcement (!!) states that the nvidia drivers suck.

How emberrassing for nvidia.
Pathetic. Really.

That's odd. I had Flash 9 running like absolute dog crap after an update. Hardware Acceleration no longer worked on it. I merged flash10 (testing, it's not stable) from Portage and it worked fine again.

Though Flash10 has a weird lag issue which goes away if you restart the browser.......

Okay, I think you misunderstood me. I have no problems with Flash. Flash is just an example where I can see that the 8600GT performs notable slower compared to the 7300GT. Please forget about flash. Thank you.

WEIRD BREAKTHROUGH!

The resizing/firefox lag is apparently fixed for me! Resizing is super smooth. All I did was change to the Candido Carbon GTK theme and the Elyssa Metacity theme from Linux Mint! For some odd reason I couldn't start up compiz fusion though so let me see if I can get that working. I'll post more. Right now I need people to test that Candido Carbon GTK theme and tell me how it goes! Compare resizing with other themes such as the Murrine engine, Clearlooks engine and so on...
