We use NVidia cards to do 3D hardware stereo graphics to view molecules
in 3D. The 3D perfomance after upgrading to the NVidia-supplied driver
is mind-blowing.

I agree 100%.  I only updated to the nvidia-supplied driver on a couple
of machines because "it was there" not because the stock driver was slow
or broken.  I haven't even tried the 3D performance...I'll have to get
right on that.  ;)
