    Phoronix: GNOME 3.38's Mutter Gets More Optimizations - ~10% Lower Render Time In Some Scenarios

    Even more optimizations have now been queued up for GNOME 3.38 launching this month...

    I've avoided GNOME shell for a long time not because I don't think it's a bad UI but because it's stuttering a lot (especially with the nVidia blob).
    Will all these recent improvements I'm considering trying it out again actually.

      With Wayland and AMD Gnome Shell is fast right now, but better performance is always welcomed.

        It's always good to read about optimisations like that. Sadly, I am using MATE, been stuck with it for so long. Habit, a guess

          There are two _really_ nice changes coming for Gnome 3.38 for multi-monitor gaming (Wayland only):

          https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/mutte...e_requests/798

          https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/mutte..._requests/1285

          Trying to help out with testing it, some bugs but when it's polished it should be really good!

            With every news like this I wonder, how does the Cinnamon compare? Do they backport these performance patches to Muffin? Clem Lefebvre never mentioned any performance boosts to Muffin, but we got the fractional scaling at least.

              While this post is not about KDE at all, it reminds me that I haven't read of performance improvements in their camp for a long time. Will they be able to integrate some of Roman Gilg's KWinFT work? Has the dust settled on their disputes with him over the course of KWin?

                I've been waiting for 798 since Ubuntu switched to Gnome 3 years back. I routinely run 3 displays of different DPIs on my laptop.

                  It would be hard for them because they have less developers than GNOME. If I recall correctly they stated on GitHub they will keep eyes on Mutter improvements. I wonder if it's possible to port Cinnamon Shell to Mutter without massive rewrite.

                    I don't think these two will make it in time for 3.38.
                    Perhaps 3.40 or 3.42.

                    Still I think Gnome has been advancing really hard the last couple of years.
                    Especially on the Wayland side of things.
                    I wonder how other desktops are doing on this front though.. we always read about every small improvement on the Gnome side.
                    This always makes me wonder whether Gnome is catching up on features or other desktops like KDE simply being far behind on stuff like (x)wayland support, multi-monitor support, undirect fullscreen, performance etc..
