I've been hoping for a review of the GTX 260/280 under Linux for some time now. User feedback from the web has been scarce as hen's teeth.
I know there's a lot of buzz surrounding ATI right now (bluntly: it's a great big love-in!) but I'm also genuinely interested in the NVIDIA cards. Especially the 2D performance of course.
Surely NVIDIA didn't stick two fingers up at the Linux community by refusing Michael some samples?
i doubt they are afraid, they dont give a damn enough to actually be afraid
I'm going to work on trying to reproduce this later on today.
I have an 8800GT currently on a 64bit gentoo box and don't see any problem with 2d performance. 1080p x264 movies are perfect, windows move as fast as I can move them and stop as soon as I let go (1920x1200 on 24" monitor.)
Can someone tell me how to see if I'm actually affected by the poor 2d performance issue or not ?
I'm in the market for either the 4870x2 or gtx 280 (waiting on 4870x2 review from here), so if the NVidia driver is hurting me on my desktop compared with what I would get out of an ATI card, I'd like to know
