In recent months we noticed significant performance degradation when using updated NVidia drivers on Linux.
We worked the problem with NVidia and they determined it to be caused by a change made to one of the default driver settings.
If you experience performance problems when using these newer drivers then please try to uncheck this checkbox:
System -> Preferences -> NVidia X Server Settings -> X Screen 0 -> OpenGL Settings -> Sync to VBlank
If you would not want to change this option globally then you should be able to get the same result by setting this environment variable before launching our products:
We hope this fixes the problem for you.
If you have any graphics performance related questions or issues then please contact us and we’ll do our best to help.
Good find, Rafal!
