It may help a little bit in some cases (opposite effect in others, depends on your usage). You could also change your gtk engine to a lighter on (dunno if you already do but engines like Murrine are much slower than say...clearlooks).
As for movies, they should not b slow. Are you watching them with xv enabled or high-def h.264?
How high is your xorg cpu usage?
Nvidia really needs to fix this...its only going to get worse as themes get richer and more dependent on render. I believe this slowness will also extend to the 9 series, anyone care to rebut?
what does InitialPixmapPlacement do ?
now I am using clearlooks engine and overall 2D performance is a lot better ! especially working with menus and browsing web sites. But still performance is poor
My friend is using an onboard graphic card ( Intel chipset ) and his computer performance (2d) is a lot better than me !
could you please testing following link :
its a flash movie ( like youtube) try to watch it in fullscreen , with my friend computer its showing fine ! ( my friend's computer's cpu is just a AMD 3000 but mine is Intel Q6600!) but with my computer its showing slow motion ! and xorg is using 100% cpu usage
For movies I am using NV ( I tried other video drivers but they aren't better ) when there is a fast action its a bit slow , ( like old graphic cards ) and its annoying
I have only 2 choices , saying byebye to Linux and using f**** windows
and changing graphic card !
I heard Nvidia 7series have better support and performance in linux , is this true ?
I am not a gamer and I need to have a good 2D performance on dual display .
I hope Nvidia do something for linux users
