Ubuntu NVIDIA Graphics Driver: Windows Competitive, But Only With KDE


An anonymous reader writes “The NVIDIA Linux driver across multiple GeForce graphics cards can compete with Microsoft Windows 7 on Ubuntu, yet only when using the KDE desktop & not the default Unity/Compiz. It turns out based upon recent desktop environment benchmarking, Ubuntu’s Unity desktop is now noticeably slower than GNOME/KDE/Xfce/LXDE with multiple GPUs/drivers. Sam Spilsbury of Canonical/Compiz acknowledges the problem yet it may take longer than one Ubuntu cycle to correct.”
