Needed to change my graphics drivers from to for an application. Man, that closed driver is a lot faster than nouveau. Feels like I have a fresh laptop.

@mrb Sad to say, but with Nvidia on Linux you should use the proprietary driver. Despite best efforts, Nouveau just doesn't come close. An AMD gpu is a better choice. Those have excellent open source drivers, meaning great kernel, Mesa, etc. support.

@mrb it’s not that the driver is worse but the blob from nvidia unlocks higher speeds which are not accessible for unsigned by nvidia drivers.
