Hey There,

I was slightly bored last night and decided to give the new nVidia 190.18 beta drivers a go on my Sager laptop. Anyways the results appears to be around a 15% FPS increase on my Wine/Cedega games! Figured I'd share and see if anyone else has given them a go yet.

I installed the new nVidia 190.18 driver on my ubuntu 8.04, a few weeks ago, so I could try out some new openGL 3.2 features. It ended up that the driver couldn't detect my graphic card (GForce 8600 GT) after reboot. Such a pity that I had to switch back to the old driver. I thought that GForce 8000 series should be supported, no quite sure what went wrong.

Sorry to bump the old thread but I just noticed the response, have you tried any of the other versions of the 190 drivers? I've had good luck with the 190.25 (the .3x caused lockups for me)
