The driver on the Nvidia repository at
http://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/11.1/ is also a Beta as I found to my
cost!

I just installed 185.19 and I’m getting 13,500 fps in glxgears. That’s about 4 times what I was getting with the 180 series driver.

I’m using a GeForce 8600 GTS.

There are a couple of changes. Example, from the 185.x series my card’s power-saving function works. Okay - still bugy, but it slows down the GPU Core’s speed. It’s also slowing down when I’m playing some games with wine. The GPU speed is still reduced, and the games is unplayable.
