I have installed ubuntu 11.10 long time ago and since then i was experiencing graphic performance regressions. With updates some things got better, others remained the same. Things that remained the same are FF related. I have noticed that sometimes FF is very choppy, and sometimes very smooth. I couldn't figure out why that happened.
But i do remember that with the OS upgrade i also did a hardware upgrade (MB,CPU,GPU,RAM,HDD) but left the power supply(4.5 year old) the same. My configuration follows:
- PSU 350W
- MB Gigabyte M68MT-S2
- Athlon II X2 240
- GeForce 210
- 1 RAM 2GB
- x2 SATA HDD (sums to ~400 GB)
- 1 DVD RW
So my question is: should i suspect ubuntu for the performance regression or my power supply?
