Nvidia : fast games, sluggish kwin, noisy :-(
Pit commented on 13 January 2018 at 5:03 pm UTC

Bidinou@riusma : thanks ! At this very moment, nvidia-settings reports : 42°C, fans at 38% speed. Does it report 0% speed for you then ?

@all : after applying the v-sync Tweak, actually, I'm not that sure that's smoother :-/
This one :
Is there a better one ? It must be placebo but I even feel there is a very slight lag even when I'm just typing text ! Does any of you force triple buffering instead (in xorg.conf and/or as an env variable ?)

Not sure - I'm (only) using a tip from here (think from Liam), to set the two options 'Force composition pipeline' and 'Force full Composition Pipeline' in the X Server Display Configuration of nvidia-settings. Without a lot of tearing, with it not. Don't know your standards.

I'm running a 1060 GTX, too (from Asus). T normaly around 39⁰, fan is off then.
Also running plasma/kwin. No real complaints, but the plasma panel (set to autohide) currently leaves artifacts with compositing on (nvidia 384.111). That might be specific here though, I'm running Tumbleweed (Plasma 5.11.5/Kernel 4.14.12)

@Pit : well, this "force full composition pipeline" setting is supposed to slow down games... I have no tearing actually when I set the variable as specified above. But framerate is inconsistent on the desktop. (while it's a constant 60 FPS with the open source driver or with the Intel HD).
