Nvidia 6600gt AGP Poor 2D performance.
I just upgraded from a Geforce 3 to a Geforce FX6600GT (AGP version).
Since going this, my 2D performance is much slower than the Geforce 3. I mainly notice this in KDE programs that use XFT font rendering. Konqueror and konsole being the worst. Interestingly enough GTK-Based programs using XFT font rendering work fast just like on the Geforce 3.
I am using the NVIDIA binary drivers on XOrg 6.8.2, and DO have RENDER ACCELERATION turned on.
Has anyone else seem this sort of behavior with this card? Why just KDE apps?
It's very frustrating! I would try the nv drivers, but they don't support this card yet.
