I can see that 295.53 and 295.59 are available. Use 295.59.
I've updated to the latest testing 302.17 & it's working ok so far.
I just did the same update. I thought at first everything was okay,
then I ran glxgears, which runs at 1/5 normal speed. Going back to
295.59 fixed it. Very puzzling, since there was nothing unusual in

Aha. I re-emerged nvidia-drivers-302.17 and the lightbulb lit up:
Running synchronized to the vertical refresh. The framerate should be
approximately the same as the monitor refresh rate.
302 frames in 5.0 seconds = 60.292 FPS
Sure enough, my monitor's vertical refresh rate is 60Hz. I guess the
logic is that the video card needn't render more frames than the monitor
can display each second?
Yes. You can set this stuff up in the nvidia-settings control panel.
Unfortunately, the Gentoo nvidia-drivers ebuild isn't the best, and it
doesn't install a start-up launch script for nvidia-settings (like
Ubuntu and other distros do.) So when you change settings, you need to
manually run nvidia-settings to restore them again after every login.
I solved this problem by creating an executable file:
with the following contents:
[ -x /opt/bin/nvidia-settings ] &&
/opt/bin/nvidia-settings --load-config-only > /dev/null 2>&1
This restores the settings automatically on every X11 login. Ah well,
welcome to Gentoo :-P
