Does Compiz Still Slow Down Your System?
When running World of Padman, it was the same story as OpenArena:
- The Radeon Gallium3D frame-rate was higher when Compiz 0.9.4
- The Catalyst driver performance was unchanged by Metacity vs. Compiz.
- Nouveau's performance drops the most when Compiz is used.
- The binary NVIDIA driver experiences a small drop in performance.
