NVIDIA performance degradation
I've been having this problem for awhile now, and wanted to know if it was common and/or there was a fix for it. I've searched a lot of forums looking for solutions and found nothing.
Basically, I start compiz fusion up, and things go perfectly smooth... for a few minutes. Then it starts getting REALLY REALLY jerky. If I grab the cube a few times it will fix it, and things go smooth again for a few minutes. It's starting to get really annoying. I've had this problem on both Linux (Gentoo) and FreeBSD.
Anyone got input?
I've done both of those things, and have been for awhile. The driver I'm using currently is 180.11

Use system monitor to check if any processes are using high cpu, sometimes other programs can cause the stuttering.
