Hey all. I’ve got this strange issue I’m hoping I can get resolved. I have 3700x, Gigabyte Aeorus Elite x570 MB, Gigabyte 2070 Super graphics card, 32 GB 3600 Mhz RAM. Using the propriatary driver (440.100) on Manjaro. Kernel 5.7. KDE Plasma.
Whenever I open up a new program or do anything “new”, the system lags momentarily. For example, if I’m watching a Youtube video and I open up Gimp, the video lags a little while the song sounds choppy for half a second. While I’m playing a game (I play a lot of WoW), and I’ve got spotify running in the background playing music, the game will lag a bit during song skips. I’ve got dual monitors, both running at 60 Hz.
Other than this, the system is smooth and I’ve eliminated screen tearing as is a normal issue with Nvidia. Not using triple buffering or pipeline compositing. Also tried with these on, with no improvement. My CPU barely goes above 30% at any time and I’ve got at least 2/3 of the memory free too, so bottlenecking should definitely not be whats happening here.
I’d say I’m an intermediate Linux user. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
