Re: 8800 GTX Performance (9746)
Just as another bit of data on this, I've noticed that grabbing and moving a large window around is very jerky and seems to use a lot of CPU in the Xorg process. If I move the window slowly then it is smooth though even that will put the CPU use of Xorg into the high 70's and then if I try to move it quickly, especially over top of some other window, it moves in fits and jerks with pauses. Also if all I do is switch between desktops causing the screen to redraw, I get the Xorg CPU use into the 80's or 90's.
My CPU is an AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4800+ and I'm running the 2.6.15-27-k7 kernel that kubuntu installed.
