    Phoronix: NVIDIA 295.49 Fixes Linux Performance Regression

    I've been experiencing a regression with the 295.40 driver as shipped with Ubuntu 12.04 in that it completely crashes several times a day. There is nothing like having your desktop suddenly disappear as you are working and being dumped back to the login screen. Thankfully Noveau actually works well. (Using an 8800GT/NV92.)

      My 8600 died (after some years - I guess it was expected) so I got a 560GTX - and with the default driver that Ubuntu 12.04 downloaded, it's been working out quite splendidly.

      Compiz has been fairly broken though in terms of fullscreen performance - and it crashes with unredirect enabled - so I'm on metacity.
