I still have problems (especially performance problems in some KDE4 apps: marble, konqueror and scrolling in system settings). Drawing box on the desktop is choppy, but it's much smoother with current beta driver than with previous one, but f.e. flash seems to be slower. I hope that stable driver will fix many of these issues and if that happen I can say that I'm happy nvidia card owner.

Eh, I saw Intel card today on Linux, it rocks! Everything is smooth, even resizing Firefox windows over flash animations.

I have GeForce 6200. And at least with Firefox (3.0.1), use of
nvidia-settings -a InitialPixmapPlacement=2 seems to seriously help.

I used the Canvas benchmark at http://intertwingly.net/stories/2006...oseTiling.html with Firefox 3 and it takes around 3 seconds to render with default settings. But after running the above command (i.e., IPP=2), it takes just 1.2 seconds. If I again set IPP=1, it takes 3 seconds again. Interestingly, this change only takes place with Firefox 3. With Opera, the IPP value has no effect (can anyone explain that??).

Anyone else with results from the same benchmark??

My test machine is AMD 64 1.8GHz, 2GB RAM, SuSE 10.3 (i586), Xorg 7.2, Nvidia driver 173.14 (SuSE rpm)

I've just about had it!
KDE4 is unbearable on my Geforce 8400M!
NVidia had better fix this driver soon if they want me to ever buy another card from them ever again!
I've been waiting for close to a year now, and my patience is nearing it's end!

Works for me, 4.2 seconds with IPP=1, 1 second with IPP=2. AMD 6000, 4GB, RAM 9600GT, ubuntu 8.04.1

Hi, here (see T61 sign.) canvas renders as follows:
IPP=1 -> 5.1sec
IPP=2 -> 0.9 sec

But don't be fooled by that, because still, FF seems is faster with IPP=1 at sites I visit! The same is with gtkperf, it is faster with IPP=2, but in real life scenario IPP=1 or 0 gives better result for me!
Please test real life too

Another little test here: IPP=0 -> 0.9 sec
It's the same as IPP=2, but FF performance is better. Ahh, this is some kind of mystery unless nVidia can explain this...

Dell XPS 1530 Laptop with 256M NVidia 8600M GT.
173.** driver...KDE3.5* and compiz Fusion turned on.
Using XGL, scrolling in Firefox is smooth
Resizing is just a touch slow but not a major issue.
Flipping, Cube Spinning etc...all rocks.

Same Laptop and Mandriva One RC1 Life CD.
KDE4.1 177.** driver and a very late Kernel.
Using KDE's own effects that look the same as compiz.
Wobbly windows, spinning cube......all no issues at all.

Do you know that XGL is deprecated?
Nobody now use it.

Except nvidia 8xxx users. It's the only way to get an overall good and consistent 'user experience'.
Lets hope the drivers will be ok before XGL really stops working.
