Steve Petridis from evil3D.net wrote in with some information regarding the performance increases in the latest NVIDIA drivers:

Just wanted to let you know that the performance increases in the latestNVIDIA drivers aren’t global. There are only 3 combinations of X/OpenGLresolution that enable page flipping when VSYNC is off (the reason behindthe boost).

More details are included in the evil3D.net article Linux Drivers & Page Flipping.

    This explains my huge jump at 1024×768, as I run my desktop res at 1280×1024

    page flipping works fine at 1600×1200; but this driver trashed 1024×768 for me (wierd flickering patches jump all over screen)

    PIII 500 w gforce2 MX, kernel 2.4.2 (should update, i know)
