Yes, but also tried with desktop effects disabled and see no difference. I removed all desktop widgets (now playing, folder view) and activities but it did not change anything.

Can you test to see if just leaving the system idle eventually ends up using a lot of CPU in X? Maybe leaving it idle with a few apps open?
Tonight I just booted computer and left it as is. CPU usage of Xorg ~18%. Grows up dramatically during day.

Also, I can confirm @lotlorien words. I had no problem with oldest drivers on OS 11.2 or 11.3.
