I have an Intel HD integrated graphics card which is 620.
With other GNU/Linux distros I have been having lag issues with only web browsers, particularly when I am scrolling (specifically for chromium and chromium-based). I have enabled these flags
ignore-gpu-blacklist (for chromium/chromium-based) and while they do improve the performance, it is still laggier compared to Windows. I have done GPU and CPU tests and they do better than on Windows.
I have used Clear Linux on my PC and another Arch-based system. With Clear Linux as long as those flags mentioned above are enabled then the browser performs very smooth. I installed
linux-clear-current on my Arch-based distro and while performance has significantly improved and it is close to Clear Linux’s performance, it is still a bit laggy compared to Clear Linux.
What other measures does Clear Linux use to optimise performance?
And also I would like to know how come ONLY web browsers are laggy but everything else runs smoothly?
