[pkg-nvidia-devel] Bug#504188: nvidia-glx: 177.80 is dead slow running render_bench

Package: nvidia-glx
Version: 177.80-1
Severity: normal

When running render_bench, 177.80 is dead slow. For an example:

Test Xrender doing general nearest scaled Over blends
173.14.09:     0.356 sec
177.80:	     374.124 sec

It's like Xrender acceleration is turned off when using 177.80.

I've tested with both 2.6.26 and 2.6.27, same result.
