New NVIDIA Detonator 3 Drivers For Linux

Linux Vs. Windows 2000 - Quake 3 Arena

Detonator 2

These are the results we already know from the last review . There's only little difference between Linux and Windows2000 with Detonator 2 at the low resolutions.

Linux is lagging further behind Windows2000 at 1024x768x16-bit color. Interestingly the two Quadro cards don't show this effect as much, while the Linux-performance of GeForce 2 GTS with Detonator 2 seems particularly bad.

At 1600x1200 the Linux driver is still suffering from the BITBLT vs. page flip issue, which is why the Windows2000 scores are significantly better.
