Nvdia GTX 770 Dual Monitor setup (1 /w gsync), No tearing but scrolling feels choppy / unsmooth

Wed Mar 07, 2018 8:22 pm

Hey guys,
first of all, @devs: I love you all. You did an amazing work and I'm pretty sure solus will become even more popular within the next years, so keep the work going on!

Alright, now to my problem. After a fresh install I updated everything (400) packages and installed the offical nvidia closed source drivers from doFlicky. They seem to work and the settings currently are this:
- Force Full Composition Pipeline is turned ON on both displays.
- Gsync is disabled (Only one monitor supports it)
- One Monitor set to 144hz, the other set to 60hz

When I turn off Full Composition Pipeline and turn ON GSync there's no tearing on my Gsync monitor but on the other one, so I turned it off and forced full comp. pipeline on both and just disabled gsync though.

Alright, Csgo seems to work with 400fps and theres no tearing so far (so I assume the drivers are working correctly), but on the desktop, or more specifically, in every browser I tried, the scrolling just feels so unresponsive, it's like when you scroll with 30fps on a 144hz monitor. I don't know how to explain this but since I come from windows 10 and used firefox there all the time, I never noticed such a "poor" performance. It's not the performance in general, everything is working great but as soon as I scroll, it feels completely different and slower/laggier than it should. I don't know if its related to gsync or do my dual monitor setup, but I could not find any fix though. This is pretty annoying though so If anyone knows fix, I would really appreciate it, this is the one thing which annoys me that hard.

Did I miss anything on any settings or is this just linux related and unfixable in that sense? :x

And yes, I set layers.acceleration.force-enabled to true, which stopped the tearing only in firefox, but it still feels laggy / choppy.
