I can confirm this for my (broken) nVidia GeForce 7600 GS (G73);
the nvidia driver (with kernel module) provides good 3D performance,
while the nv and nouveau drivers only work for "normal" desktop

Tested with Quake 4 demo, Doom 3 demo, "xlock -nolock -mode lament",
"xlock -nolock -mode gears", "xlock -nolock -mode fire" (port:
xlockmore) and of course "glxgears" (port: mesa-demos). :-)
