    What baffles me is that some say triple buffering is the only fix for this, while others say it's a bad workaround and this has to be fixed in the driver. What if this is something that has to be fixed in Mutter itself? I mean that's how game developers optimize their games - they can even optimize certain areas in-game where there is a large framerate drop and they can also stabilize the frametime. How is Mutter different in this regard?
    I also wonder how does DWM in WIndows copes with this issue. At least on Windows 10, animations are butter smooth.

    Meanwhile not making it for the GNOME 44 cycle is the long out-of-tree work led by Canonical/Ubuntu for the triple buffering optimization.
    Well that was expected, the merge request still depends on unmerged work and even Daniel himself said lots of things are still untested and might be broken due to changes in Mutter.

    I think by the release of GNOME 50, it will be very stable and get merged.

    The thing is - it is ready. There is just nobody really interested to land this and I can understand it. From a design perspective you introduce a workaround for a driver/hardware unawareness. Maybe I don't understand something in this process, but wouldn't it be the better idea to add this to Linux/Mesa with an interface where an app can ask for more performance?

    For my part I don't like the implementation.

    I assumed that was gonna be the case. I didn't see anything in the pull request that suggested otherwise.

    I hope work on that finishes up before Gnome 45 though, just for his sake.
