    as mentioned i get the same bad result with GT210 as HD5xxx, so Nvidia isn't a magic bullet. At home though with, smaller monitors, things works grate on my GTX460se. My laptop with HD6370m also works grate with two monitors.

      I get good performance with two monitors on a GT210 but that is with GNOME2 + compiz. I can't speak to the newer compositors.

        The one where i get poor performance is about 3kx2k resolution, don't know if that has any thing to say.

          Interesting. I'm using a pair of 1080p monitors. What DE are you using?

            Ericg your message is self-contradictory: if it is X fault, how KDE can fix it as it is still running on X?

              Also committed on Tuesday with another revision a new --nested-mode option for running a Mir Display Server in a nested configuration atop an already present Mir process.
              Please do your homework. While the commit indeed adds the option the code clearly throws an exception if used because Mir-on-Mir is deliberately not supported yet.

                kscreen is a workaround for the limitations of X. One of the reasons it took so long to implement something like kscreen is because it is hard to do under X.
