Default Re: @Nvidia: OpenGL apps with compiz enabled run slower

Whenever a compositing manager is used (such as compiz), performance will be less than without. This is a result of the fact that everything must first be rendered off screen and then 'composited' onto the desktop. This is not a driver bug, its the nature of how compositing works.

This has already been explained in detail in older threads on this forum.
