Finally a graphics card for Linux that works flawlessly with compiz and is lightning fast

Filed under
Hardware

After years of struggling and looking around, I have finally found a graphics card that works flawlessly when running compiz under Linux and that processes all the effects at lightning speed. I've never seen something like this for that reasonable price!

I am amazingly surprised by this particular graphics card. I am using it at work, were I run Gentoo in my workstation and also at home, were I run Funtoo. The card has two DVI outputs, so it's perfect at work where I have two screens.

So far I have only tested the nVidia proprietary drivers version 195.36.24 and the performance is impressive when turning on all compiz effects.
