    It would be only *some* cards. And they'd have to drop a lot of frames to get such a speedup, which would be obviously noticeable.

    I read somewhere that NV's DX10-capable chips don't have certain features that X.org used to accelerate 2D performance. Sadly, I can't find that reference anymore.

    Remember the Geforce FX times, where not the full screen was antialiased to get some more fps..
    No, actually.

    Lol enjoy your crappy halfbaked FGLRX driver. I love AMD but I'll never buy a ATI card ever again. ATI put Linux on a shelf way too many times before AMD swooped in to mend the rift.

    But now ATI doesn't exist anymore, so stop holding a grudge against a non-entity.

    Nvidia earned all of Linuxdom's loyalty by being an early h/w supporter, but AMD has also been a long-time supporter, and is making a concerted effort to make up for ATI's past sins.

    Too bad for AMD that my existing kit (especially after i bumped up to 8GB RAM for only $85) is more than fast enough for my needs.
