GNOME and NVIDIA could get along much better very soon

GNOME and NVIDIANVIDIA is one of the leading companies when it comes to graphics cards. Many computers carry their hardware, but in Linux it can give problems that must be corrected, as you can read here! o here!, where we will see problems solved in Plasma and that Eoan Ermine will arrive with his drivers so that the installation works better. KDE Community fixed some bugs in April and it looks like it will be the turn of GNOME, one of the most used graphical environments in the world Linux.

The person responsible for the improvements is Daniel van Vugt of Canonical, who continues to research to improve performance and optimize the GNOME experience in Ubuntu and in other components that are not related to the company that Mark Shuttleworth runs. The last thing van Vugt is focusing on is improving the NVIDIA experience and now for the X.Org session a merge request is pending to provide a smoother experience. That is, it works so that GNOME and NVIDIA work best when running under X.Org.

GNOME under and NVIDIA will run smoother

This week, Van Vugt opened an application that provides a 'significant improvement' in speed smoothness frame for NVIDIA proprietary Linux graphics driver running on GNOME in X.Org session (this MR does not affect the Wayland session).

“So the 'thread swapping wait' provided better sub-frame phase precision, but at the expense of frame rates. And as soon as it starts causing frames to drop, that one benefit is lost. There is no reason to keep it.

As It will also improve is the response when we play videos in Chrome or the CPU is running at 100%, which can happen when encoding videos with Handbrake. In short, it will soon improve the user experience for GNOME users, including those who use Ubuntu as an operating system, and their computer has an NVIDIA graphics card.

    It says that in the wayland session it will not affect this improvement, right? I usually use it but knowing this, well, it is almost better not
