    Phoronix: More Mutter Performance Tuning Work Landing For GNOME 3.30

    GNOME 3.30 is looking like Mutter will be quite fit with the ability to remove its dependence on X11 code and various performance tuning optimizations. On top of already landed performance work in recent months, more optimizations have just landed and it looks like more could still be on the way...

      Lets hope https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/mutter/merge_requests/73 arrives on time for 3.30. That should mostly fix the two-monitor problem

        My 144hz monitor is screaming for that 60fps lock on Wayland to go away, but right now I'm stuck with it because x.org instantly freezes when trying to log in after upgrading to x.org 1.20 which forces me to use Wayland, which luckily is working right now. I'm not sure if the 60fps lock is just xwayland or if it affects everything, but it's bloody awful either way.

          So much saying that wayland would magically fix everything and be more easy to work with but so far it seems like all the contrary and it has created the same amount of fragmentation, every project writing their own compositor code, some are more optimized, some support nvida, others not... Around 10 years of wayland development and it still hasnt catch up.

            Let's hope they finally fix https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-shell/issues/1 as well on time for 3.30 - it is hugely annoying too.

              It's both a gnome/mutter and a xwayland bug

                I agree. They should've gone with Arcan.

                  Just added 'export CLUTTER_DEFAULT_FPS=120' to my ~/.profile. Soo much smoother now

                  xwayland apps still running at 60fps though.

                    Ah didn't know that was possible
                    But on a wayland session, you probably want to use ~/.config/environment.d/clutter.conf or something. ~/.profile is not run by default but only after you opened a terminal. See https://www.freedesktop.org/software...ronment.d.html
