Mesa 20.2 is now out for testing.
Linux drivers are getting better
I clean installed everything a few weeks ago and decided not to download Nvidia this time, and noticed a big jump in performance from the last time a year or two ago when I tried using the free open source drivers
I’m still using the open source ones and think I’ll stick with them
also no tearing on watching videos?
I have no tearing on videos anymore. It was the main problem I faced in the past with the free Linux drivers. Also their ability to handle heavier usage is catching up to proprietary drivers
i will try that, as i hate setting up all nvidia configuration… i need kernelparameters on boot settings in xorg and nvidia settings thats way to much…
just converted to nouveau driver, need to change some stuff for i3 setup, seems nouveau have different identificators for displays, HDMI-0 is called HDMI-1 on nouveau drivers… and i need to change picom to get nice tearfree
picom -b --unredir-if-possible --backend xr_glx_hybrid --vsync --use-damage --glx-no-stencil
So I can replicate that nouveau is much better now!
Let’s see what new Mesa will do then it is still:
