    I've been using NVIDIA GPUs since the late 90s, and I haven't seen tearing in Linux for the past 15 years. Phoronix forums have turned into utter crap and most hardcore Linux fans here cannot stop lying and insluting everyone who doesn't use Linux, who doesn't love Wayland, who uses NVIDIA or Intel in any capacity. I have blacklisted you as well.

    I'm using just three options to configure my NVIDIA GPU:
    Option "Coolbits" "28"
    Option "metamodes" "nvidia-auto-select +0+0 {ForceCompositionPipeline=On, ForceFullCompositionPipeline=On}"
    Option "UseNvKmsCompositionPipeline" "Off"
    Not sure if I still need the last one - I added it a long time ago, probably it's no longer necessary.

    Intel and AMD drivers also require an option (TearFree On) to provide a tear free experience. It is not enabled by default.
    You have to modify files to get a good experience with NVIDIA on Linux. Very practical.

    And not, Intel and AMD experiences aren't free of tearing, but on Xorg the tearing is much less noticeable than NVIDIA, and today I don't use Xorg, so I don't have tearing.
