    I get around 13000 with this version on a 7800 GTX
    I am using 8800GT with E6750 on a G33 mainboard.

      The NVIDIA 173.14.05 does ship with "out of the box" support for the Linux 2.6.25 kernel and preliminary support for X.Org 7.4 / X Server 1.5.
      So it means that nVidia driver will work with Fedora 9?
      If yes, I'm waiting for livna.org package and finally I could update Fedora

        The NEW driver is very fast!
        Wine + Cod4 = 28-40FPS!

        before with 173.08
        Wine + Cod4 = 19-30FPS!
        NVIDIA Thank you!, And request more FPS

          Yes, it works, though there is some text corruption going on Strangely enough, it only seem to affect some fonts, but not all. I'm not sure if this is my fault or the driver though.

          Here's an example of it

            Before you do anything rash with your hardware have a read of the ATI forum here on Phoronix and notice that others are pulling their hair out over various issues and threatening to burn their ATI and switch to a nvidia.

            Be well aware that both binary drivers have their issues, sometimes major showstoppers depending on your hardware. Both open source efforts (RadeonHD, Noveau) are a little way off completion, although hopefully closing in on "good enough" status rapidly.
            The reason I will switch to ATI is that AMD ARE really working with the community to get open source driver usable in 2d/3d for these card. Sadly "Nouveau" driver is not usable at all for me (I know they are working really hard!) so the reason I will switch to ATI is their open source drivers not the closed one.

              Somehow. It's behind intel and ati but kde4 is now usable.
              Try this:
              Put this in your xorg.conf:
              Section "Screen"
              ........
              Option "PixmapCacheSize" "200000"
              ........
              EndSection

              if you have a laptop

              put this in /etc/modprobe.conf (or create a file in /etc/modprobe.d/)

              options nvidia NVreg_RegistryDwords="PerfLevelSrc=0x2222"
              options nvidia NVreg_Mobile=1

              reboot (or from console (without X started): rmmod nvidia;modprobe nvidia)


              run: nvidia-settings -a InitialPixmapPlacement=2 -a GlyphCache=1

              I have NVIDIA 8600M GT. Kde now works pretty good.

              If you don't have an laptop I suggest you to buy ATI !!!

                And there is already linva.org package.

                  It seems that the performance difference between 171.06 and 173.14.05 in Nexuiz are very slight (in contrast to the performance in glxgears)

                  My PTS benchmark

                    does it make konqueror work? with ipp @ 2 konq in kde4 rendered "paint drying" slow and opening large images was an exercise in patience

                      InitialPixmapPlacement=1 works best for large images on my setup.

                        Well, all I can say is "lulz"... Now the people suddenly want to embrace ATI's efforts the help the development of radeon/radeonhd drivers by telling others to buy ATI stuff...
                        I'd risk a statement that people ALWAYS stick to what works... ideology is irrelevant here - I think I've never seen anyone cursing NVIDIA when their driver was working well, no matter if it was closed or whatever.
                        I am sure NVIDIA will fix the bugs - and then, will you still call for people to buy ATI or return to using what you have?
                        Anyway... 'twas just a random rant... feel free to flame me if you see it proper...

                          I am stuck at Performance-Mode.I would like to get my card cooler.
                          Thanks

                            I'm getting the same text corruption with this driver. Any solution yet?

                                Since I left the 100.14.19 driver I had problems with window icons corruption (minimize, maximize, close) and the related bar.
                                I also had problems with amsn when I try to change my personal picture (X crashes in that moment). Does this driver resolve them?

                                My card is a 7300 GT.
