Does this update from Nvidia fix this issue?

Apparently not. It's still got the bug.

I found something in the 296.10 release notes that looks like it MIGHT be related to the problem:

Hybrid Power

Support for Hybrid Power, a Hybrid SLI technology, is discontinued
and not available with this driver.


However, I haven't found enough information on what Hybrid Power is to do more than guess whether it's related to BOINC GPU use.

Does the problem with the 295-296 drivers touch linux systems or not? Why does the performance in linux is 2 times lower than in Win7?

In Linux you have to go to NVidia Control Panel and set to prefer maximum performance - Every Time you restart!
If you don't the GPU downclocks. If your driver works, don't touch it.

The problem with low performance was because of 4 cores load in my WCG project, I have made some changes and forced only 3 cores to operate, and GPU temperature has started ot rise to WIn7 levels. GPUgrid in linux utilizez 1 CPU CORE up to 100%.

This 296.10 driver did strange things with my GTX 590 on my WinXPx64, like GPU usage risen while the performance didn't. I couldn't restart NATHAN_FAX4 tasks on my GTX 590.
So I reverted back to 285.58.
