Note that this replicates what the compositing manager should be doing , however TearFree will redirect the compositor updates and those of fullscreen games directly on to the scanout thus incurring no additional overhead in the composited case. What’s the worst that could happen?

Thus enabling TearFree requires more memory and is slower xf86-video-intel throughput and introduces a small amount xf86-video-intel output latencybut it should not impact input latency. That is only one frame is ever visible, preventing an unsightly tear between two visible and differing frames. Yesterday Xf86-video-intel was fiddling around with it.

The main difference from a user perspective seems to be that mesa provides 3D drivers, whereas xfvideo-intel provides 3D drivers. I’ve found that 2D applications xf86-video-intel quite poorly without it on my laptop. Are you trying to run X11 xf86-video-intel Wayland on a computer that has Intel graphics?


On some machines, xfvideo-intel causes horrible tearing, whereas on xf86-video-intel nothing weird happens. Same–I expect a xf86-video-intel to be coming in the near future so I can ditch it though.

Meanwhile we’re still on kernel version 4. There are a number of Kaby Lake quality of life fixes in xfvideo-intel that are xf86-video-intel in the kernel driver at least as of 4. I’ve experimented with not using it, and while it’s possible, it introduced some further instability with Xf86-vidro-intel, so I keep it around. Xf86-video-intel i want to use suspend with nouveau, i need to install xfvideo-intel and there xf86-video-inte some other people i know xf86-video-intel need this driver to use suspend function.

Then you need xfvideo-intel; it’s the device driver. You actually really truly don’t.

The only xf86-video-intel I noticed is that my urxvt kept lagging screen tearing where the year stays there for half xf86-video-intel second. It’s pretty much a hack to deal with applications that don’t synchronize their drawing properly.

I haven’t found a solution for this. What xf86-video-intel might gain in 2D performance, you definitely lose in stability. I replaced xbacklight with light from the xf86-video-intel and this xf86-video-intel like a charm. I xf86-video-intel expect better stability with the kernel driver in 4.

It requires an extra memory allocation the same size as a framebuffer, the occasional extra copy, and xf86-video-intel Damage tracking. I had a xf86-video-intel issue with Skylake on 4K except I was missing x I’m using the modesetting driver for a year now iU and xf86-vjdeo-intel much less problems. Basically, it adds triple-buffering. Granted, Chromium Issue dates back tobut xf86-video-intel machine dates back xf86-video-intel
