I'd like to ask the community what performance I should be getting out of the video card Nvidia Quadro M600m when run under Ubuntu, and how to optimise it.
This videocard is rather low-end but it is the only Nvidia that fits into my Ubuntu box and Ubuntu supports it (it found proprietary drivers for it immediately alongside open source one).
I picked the driver that has the "tested" mark on it as it appears to be the most suitable driver Ubuntu found.
I'm using Blender and the video card performs rather poorly. In fact my quad core Intel processor does better job rendering than the video card which allegedly has 2GB of dedicated memory!
Don't get me wrong, I don't expect remarkable performance from a video card that cost £100 (approx. $160), but I did expect it to handle Blender well. I should be able to see those 2GB somewhere.
Would the videocard perform better using an alternative driver?
