    Phoronix: NVIDIA 310.14: OpenGL 4.3, Threaded Optimizations

    NVIDIA pushed out their first Linux graphics driver beta in the 310.xx series on Monday. The NVIDIA 310.14 driver supports OpenGL 4.3, brings threaded OpenGL performance optimizations, and many other new features. The NVIDIA 310.14 Beta for Linux is an exciting release!..

    That can be only with very rare gfx cards with 1 performance level only. All newer cards are usually slower as they just run with the default boot speed.

    Ok, then the nvidia installer should select "raster" by default. At least this beta did not do that on my system.
    Now my question is, why in the KDE site (and forums) raster is recommended "especially" with nvidia drivers?. Why nouveau drivers has better performance than nvidia drivers in native X11 (in KDE)? (at least with my graphics card)

    Which graphics system is used depends on the distribution defaults. For the Compositor raster is recommended especially if the NVIDIA driver is used.

    I selected "raster" as Qt Graphics System and performance is better.
    I think that performance in "native" (X11) should be better.

    Wow, your ignorance speaks louder.
    Dude, you should really kick this habit of only reading parts of posts. Especially when you intend to call others ignorant. Because all you're showing is your *own* ignorance.

    KMS is not necessary for the Nvidia driver. KMS is not the one holy modesetting solution. Nvidia have their own. And now let me blow your mind: Nvidia's modesetting is in the kernel too! Even bigger mind blowage: They've had it way before KMS even existed!
