    Yes, I know about the backclear patch and always use it when I use fglrx.

    opps. No, the backclear patch is the better one. I should not post after drinking some nice Mai UrBock.

    what he's trying to say: try to apply the backclear patches to X. That'll speed up fglrx.

    It doesn't do much for the OSS drivers though, they don't hit that specific bottleneck.

    In any case, neither driver should be that slow with KDE4 - it's faster for me with fglrx, and from what I read it's faster with the OSS drivers as well.

    I'm don't think its possible for this post to be more ambiguous.

    Compiz yeah, but the "legendary support" for KWin is hardly something to be proud of.

    How long did it take nVidia to get decent performance with KDE4? A year? When all other drivers were just fine?

    For those of us stuck with older nVidia cards, it is still buggy, and will remain like that forever.
