I know it sounds like I am trying to sell you something, but I'm very excited. I bought a new PC i7 nVidia 580gtx, etc and have had terrible framerates (14 in hells, 25 at docks with everything off). Apparently a lot of new hardware from ATI and nVidia have similar issues.
Turns out the quick easy answer is an OpenGL wrapper. I tried this last night and getting 70-100 at docks, will run hells this week.

Copy OpenGL32.dll from the GLIntercept directory to the NWN directory. Copy gliConfig_ExtOverride.ini to the NWN directory and rename it to gliConfig.ini. Inside of the ExtensionOverride block at the bottom of the file, add the line
and replace it with the one I have provided above.
Removing these two extensions seems to have eliminated the problem for me. I haven't noticed any side effects as yet, but I suspect that NVIDIA's driver team could do a lot better than this hack. You can also go through and disable all of the logging functions, but I believe they are pretty minimal in that config template.
The "extension limit" is a problem for a lot of hardware. Unfortunately the new nVidia drivers don't give you the option to on/off (at least for my vid card 580gtx). I've been trying to solve this for almost a month and thrilled that this quick fix actually works.
Still feel like I'm trying to sell Slap-Chop or something. -G
Same. Sadly this didn't work for me. I barely hit 50 fps in the bank. Im watching out for the next big nVidia driver update after reading the boards though. Good to see they've looked into the issues with nwn.
