Every window that I try to resize responds incredibly slowly. The windows in Chrome and Firefox are especially slow to resize and refresh. I even experience this delay in the terminal. I am absolutely dependent on instantaneous refreshes as I am working with responsive websites.
I run a GTX 1080 and a 1440p 144Hz monitor. Live resizing on Windows works flawlessy.
These are the things that I've tried so far, but that didn't help fixing my issue:
I uninstalled all of my existing NVIDIA drivers. I downloaded the proprietary 375.26 drivers for my 1080 from the NVIDIA download page. I continued to install this .run file via the terminal. Before that I tried the open-source 375.26 ones, but those didn't work either.
I changed my display rate to from 60Hz to 144Hz.
I installed the Compiz Configs Settings Manager. I made sure that the default resize mode is Normal (which basically means live window refresh on resize).
