You're absolutely correct...I was merely explaining that some people will not suffer so much because they are throwing raw computational power at a problem. This kind of solution is not acceptable to anyone else...this problem shouldn't exist in the first place and yet more than a year later (even more if you count from the first 8 series) there is still no solution

Just look at weedy intel igp's, they lack even half the power of my 8600m gt but are flying in regard to 2d performance.

I think you are correct, and why I'm probably not "plagued" by these issues as others are. Of course now that I understand these issues exist, I wholeheartedly agree that they need to be fixed.

Seems like NVIDIA is busy remedying the situation with GTX2xx series GPUs - big, power greedy GPUs which have lacklustre performance/price ratio ...

But not being able to fix 2d performance for more than a year ... it's not something usual for NVIDIA. They used to have the best drivers for Linux.

And still there's no word when all known issues are expected to be fixed.

i use nvidia 8600m gt and now i'm trying this xorg.conf but i know that some options are maybe unuseful.
I use compiz because 2d performance is bad in gnome.
Compiz is going better, but not all goes in a good way.
I hope to find the best xorg.conf for my video card.

My xorg.conf :

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Layout0"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
EndSection

EndSection

Section "InputDevice"

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=96778 was my post, almost a year ago.

While some "slow" effects in compiz have been fixed, 2D performance still slow, and compiz effect often stuttered.

Couple days ago, I was evaluating an old ATI X550 card, and I really surprised with the performance of this card (or the driver), everything so fast and smooth. Resizing window in metacity very smooth. Even resizing window in compiz (using the "Normal" mode) very very smooth, but with my 8400GS, I can't even dream about it.
Unfortunately, I can't play the only game I played (Warcraft III TFT - DOTA map, using wine or cedega) with this ATI card, so I have to plug my 8400GS back.

NVIDIA, PLEASE fix this problems. I want to use this card "comfortably" for my daily desktop usage, not only for games.

another one blogging about this. My question is, isn't nVidia impressed by all the hype on this problem?

Not really...they just tend to weather the storm until they solve the problem/ignore the problem. Part of the issue here is just the fact that it is generally their policy to not tell us much (closed driver yah know?). I'm not going to comment on whether it is a good/bad policy but it is the reality.

If you go to a site like phoronix nearly every week if not every day you see some new development in the os drivers. Despite the news many of these features will not be used by most until they reach mainline branches, but for those that care to know it is interesting and can even help report bugs and or try out cutting edge features. The same goes for bugs and problems in these drivers.

I guess my rambling point is that os development is much more communicative between dev and users than closed source and that this is one of the reasons why nvidia seemingly does not seem to respond (but I doubt we matter much anyways).

nVidia was headed downhill starting with the "revamped" Windows nVidia control panel that was much worse than what it replaced. Smells like bad management at the helm.
Whoa, Gainward, XFX, and EVGA all ditching nVidia?

Hopefully also Laptop manufacturers will move away from nvidia or put some pressure on them to fix drivers and release specs.

You guys shouldn't believe everything you read on the internet unless, you know, it has some source[s]. Charlie is a well known nvidia-hater spreading more FUD.
