Re: Slow performance 8600GT with Compiz-Fusion on Ubuntu
I seem to have the same problem. I have a GeForce 8600M GT running Ubuntu Gutsy, and when I turn Compiz Fusion on it works smooth, but suddenly (often when rotating the cube) the FPS drops to <7. When I stop rotating the cube the FPS often goes back to 50-70, but sometimes (randomly, it seems) the FPS just stays at about 7.
It's definately a bug, but I can't figure out what software is responsible. I know that it's not because the graphics card is to low-end, because from time to time the FPS is stable at 70+ no matter how much I paint fire and flip the cube..
I will (maybe) try a newer version of Compiz Fusion, just to determine if that's the problem. I also have a suspicion that it's my xorg.conf.. hard to tell, thou.
My computer is a Zepto Znote 6224W btw.
