    Kano, isn't the ATI proprietary driver reusing more components in the Linux's graphics stack than the Nvidia driver? Could it be that, since more of the code path is preserved between Nvidia's...

    I think it's a full week job for a competent developer porting and testing all the automatically/manually SSE optimized code to an x87 path.

    Nowadays, x87 code isn't produced by any compiler.

    As all the cool kids already knew (we all are, right?), your dmesg lacks the following DRM_INFO() line:

    [drm] radeon: power management initialized

    I think that's because, as agd5f already...

    Yup, that.

    And... you didn't post the output of "dmesg | grep -i drm" too. ;-)

    Do you have any issues with disabled compositing in Kwin?
    And, what with enabled xrender compositing?
