    The question is, did you install the driver and NOT touch any other settings in it ? This seems to be a composite slider that sets AA/AF/Vsync etc when you move it. So if you change anything of the other settings manually, this will have little impact.

      No.

      I looked at the one chart in the article and then decided to post.

      Because why not?

        Hm. I wasn't aware of this setting. I looked at mine (GTX 750 Ti), and saw it was set to Quality, so a different default I guess. I changed to High Quality (I use mine for photography, not gaming).

          As a frequent Phoronix visitor (now with Adblock disabled (and that being painfull)) I have to admit that I am one of those who simply just don't get it. I have no idea where you get all these 3d games from (being a Debian user that might explain some of it) and quite frankly I would really appreciate if Phoronix had a wiki where you could list games, hardware and so fourth where people can actually add or remove both correct and incorrect information (in both cases I assume). Several sites exists that list Linux compatible 3d games, compatible hardware (supported by the kernel - out of the box) and such, but a Wiki here at Phoronix could in my view perhaps be much better. Phoronix might have enough traction to keep a wiki civilized instead of vandalized and as such could be a portal for the more penguin oriented of us to find things of interest a bit easer than relying on outdated material that our friend Google tend to find for us... Just an idea

            Tbh, years ago when I tested these on Winddows there wasn't much difference either. I think AF was impacted the most (that effect that isn't easy to capture in a still shot, but generates a line between mipmaps when moving). And even that is supposed to affect performance if you're bandwidth starved to begin with.
            Also, the default is Quality, not High Quality. Not that it matters much, just don't fret out if your default is different from what the article says.

              Maybe there is no performance impact because the games tested come with settings already set in the driver itself ?

                You can find a whole bunch in the Debian repositories themselves. Besides that I'd primarily look at GOG, but other interesting sources are e.g. Desura, the Humble Store and Steam. Many games can also be bought on their own websites.

                  The article has the result where the benchmarking showed a "big" difference. There's less of a difference in other games.

                    116 pages. Hard to keep that on a wiki reasonably up to date.

                      That link gave me over 600 pages--here, try this one.
