Two GTX 460's with Nvidia 310.14 64bit, poor performance.

Postby Dans564 on Wed Nov 28, 2012 2:58 pm

Hey everyone,

Let me start with saying, Linux Mint 14 with cinnamon is GORGEOUS! Awesome work on everything!

That being said, I can't seem to get my graphics driver to behave properly. I'm using Nvidia driver 310.14 with SLI=auto (although enabling/disabling sli had no effect on my problem). I installed it through software sources, and it went of without a hitch. It seems to be installed and running fine, performance is just horrible. Haven't tried any games yet but window movements and desktop effects look horrible/very choppy. Any idea what is going on?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Try to upgrade to the stable 310.19 driver, instead of the beta driver.

Trying that now. Assuming it is the nvidia-current-updates under software sources

applied nvidia-current-updates, which turns out is 304.51, and it has the same issues. Still choppy.
