Default Re: crappy performance with 100.xx.xx series.

gbil,
Thanks for testing with ViewPerf. From your results, it looks like, overall, 100.14.11 did roughly the same or better than 1.0-9755. Anything less than 1.00 point difference is really just statistical noise.

As for not being able to test with Twinview, you could certainly specifying different metamodes for each display device. I wasn't suggesting that you ditch your current X configuration permanently in favor of using Twinview. Certainly you should be able to switch over to Twinview just to run your assorted game benchmarks, right?

Please comment on the other benchmarks I did which saw a difference on the drivers performance

Its not that easy cause Twinview messes with my gnome layout when I enable it. Applets move around and to be honest I'm not willing to rearrange them again and again.

Default Re: crappy performance with 100.xx.xx series.

did you run every test twice (doom, css)?

Because I remember well from ut2004 benchmarking that the difference between two runs could be greater than 15%... just depended on the bots moving...

Default Re: crappy performance with 100.xx.xx series.

how many times? only two or more?

and css... that is through wine, isn't it?

could you try something 'native' like ut2004 or ut2004-demo?
(I am just curious, ignore me, if you want.....)

Ran it twice. Doom 3 is native. CSS through wine.

I'm not happy with the 100 series as well. Sometimes games randomly freeze for 15 seconds and move on afterwards as if nothing has happened. I also had max 2d X desktop freeze for 15 seconds, doing nothing else than using firefox.

These problems show up the last two weeks or so, which matches the moment the 100 series became available for Fedora 7. I'm now running the 96xx series driver, so far so good.

@fokkensr -

I did notice something in your messages log that also happened to me. It shows that the nvidia kernel module differs from the "client".

I had to reboot my machine to get the kernel to use latest version.

I dont think that will help, at least it didnt help my similar problem.
