Laggy animations and slow OS

Post by HunteR » Sat May 26, 2018 3:40 pm

I have very annoying problem.
When I'm doing something that load my PC (watching YT videos, twitch streams or something like that) the mint animations (minimize/maximize windows, dragging, etc) are became very laggy.
Actually the whole OS became slower at all. I'm using 1 TV (1920x1080) and 1 Monitor (1920x1080) and often I'm playing some video on the TV while I'm doing something else on my monitor.
When I was on Windows I hadn't that kind of problem. Everything was smooth and OS was very responsive even when I was doing heavy tasks.
In Mint actually everything that could load my PC even a little bit is reflected on whole OS. Is that normal? It's very annoying.

I'm using latest version of Mint Cinnamon 64 bit.
My PC specs:
CPU: Ryzen 5 1600x
RAM: 16 GB
GPU: Nvidia GTX 1060 3G
Drivers: nvidia-390

I tried to give xorg and cinnamon processes higher priority but didn't help. :(

I would be very happy if you help me to resolve that issue.

You need to post more info ... copy/paste this to the terminal and copy/paste the text output here (no screenshots please):

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxz
It's possibly the kernel version you''re using though, that's a pretty new machine.
