This is a time of flux for video drivers. It's largely due to the advent of KDE4 that made people aware of some huge weaknesses in the old drivers. It used areas of the drivers that had not been used before, so no-one knew that they didn't work as they were supposed to. NVidia, Intel and ATi are all actively working on those problems. There was a long article somewhere on the web explaining exactly what the situation was. Unfortunately I can't find the url at the moment. Basically with either ATi or Intel you may have to fiddle to get the best, for the moment, until the current development work is done (by ATi or Intel). You'll get some idea of the kind of problems and solutions at http://userbase.kde.org/GPU-Performance Anne -- New to KDE4? - get help from http://userbase.kde.org Just found a cool new feature?
