Hello all. I've been though quite a few forums to try and find solutions to this issue, but it still seems to plague me. One common fix for many Nvidia cards is to use the Nvidia-settings manager to set the PowerMizer from the default "Adaptive" to "Prefer Maximum Performance". While that's worked on other systems, it does not work very well on my current laptop.
So, here are the hardware details:
- i7 2630 quad core, 12G RAM
- Nvidia 660M 2G RAM
- Linux Mint 13 64 bit w/Cinnamon
- Current driver: 310.14 (via the X-edgers repo)
I use a custom xconf.org file to enable the triple buffering on the card, though that seems to also have no affect. So does anyone have any other ideas or solutions to fix up the tearing? Let me know if you require any other settings info.
