I updated to Ubuntu 17.10 a while back and the GNOME performance was fine except for any games. The fps didn't drop but there was a lot of lag when moving up or down or turning around. Everything worked fine in 17.04 but unity works fine in 17.10. All tests using Xorg because I can't run Wayland.

I use an NVidia GTX 960 with 2GB vram, an i5 6600@3.9ghz and 16GB system RAM.



Did You install nvidia driver, and if yes try to disable force(full) composition pipeline because (if enabled) it is said to decrease performance.

  • Sorry I'm sort if a newb. Yes I have the NVidia drivers buy I don't know what you mean. I mean how do you do that? – Dragon8oy Nov 12 '17 at 8:43
  • If You don't don't know than You probably do not have it enabled :). It is option that helps with screen tearing that occurs when You install Nvidia driver but it decreases performance. It is located in Nvidia X server settings on "x server display configuration" tab under "advanced" – nikoldije Nov 12 '17 at 8:50
