Re. the GTKPerf results above, make sure you are using IPP=2, as there is a massive performance increase (especially with the scroll benchmark). GTK performance on my 8xxx series card is perfect for me, but you will need the latest Firefox/Xulrunner and IPP=2 to get the full effect.

that weird...I could swear ipp=2 made my firefox really laggy as well as new tabs with images taking forever to open...hmm, maybe I should try it out again when I get home.

konq works well with ipp=2 though

Initially IPP=2 made some things in Firefox slower. The image at the bottom of digg caused the scroll speed to drop significantly, and viewing comments with the moving div's on slashdot also had horrible performance (whereas normal GTK apps have always worked fine for me with IPP=2). This changed recently however when Firefox 3.0.1 and Xulrunner 1.9.0.1 came out, now scrolling on slashdot and the bottom of digg work fluidly as normal. I'm using the 177 drivers, but to be honest I noticed no speed difference over the 173 drivers. My card is an 8800GTS G92.

It gets the point across, sir, when people don't listen from experience.

No, it is rude, plain stupid and should not be done under any circumstances.

And just for your information: the beta driver is slower than the stable one here as well, unstable (crashes sometimes when switching from vt back to X) and it loads about 20 seconds when starting X.

Just to add to the confusion: I've tried them all and had best (felt) performance with 169.12.

Known issues

* Users of NVidia cards with the binary driver provided by NVidia might suffer from performance problems in window switching and resizing. We've made the NVidia engineers aware of those problems. However, no fixed NVidia driver has been released yet. You can find information on how to improve graphics performance on Techbase, although we ultimately have to rely on NVidia to fix their driver.

Well, not to start a flame war, but I guess that's just your opinion and nothing more. Beta drivers work differently on different systems but the beta allow certain configurations that improve performance.

Just name one of them, which was not already included in prior drivers.

InitialPixmapPlacement or GlyphCache I can't remember which one.

Right. Someone should post that to digg.
