I just installed EndeavourOS to my laptop. On the live iso it was already incredibly laggy, but I installed anyways thinking that nvidia drivers are going to fix it. I installed nvidia drivers using nvidia-inst, which worked, but did not fix the issue. I then went into my display settings and noticed changing the display refresh rate to 60hz fixes the problem. But since I have a 120hz display, doing that is not satisfactory.
This happens of xfce, but I also tried awesomeWM, which had the same problem.

Thank you for the suggestion. I’ve tried both, and they both have the same behaviour. Although starting it with the nvidia option gives me a lot of console spam during startup. So maybe that is a sign? How can I log the boot messages?
Disabling compositing doesn’t change anything.
Damn, I am probably being an idiot here. But I installed linux-lts + headers but they dont show up in the boot menu. So I removed the original kernel, and now it wont boot since I cant find a kernel
Anyways, I have gotten Linux Mint to work fine on this. However, this hardware is definitely not very compatible with linux, as I’ve had problems with quite a few distros
