- Obsidian v 0.11.9
- Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS
- Thinkpad T480 w/ integrated graphics. https://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/ThinkPad/ThinkPad_T480/ThinkPad_T480_Spec.PDF
I dual boot Ubuntu and Win10 on my Thinkpad.
Obsidian has always been much snappier in Windows. UI responsiveness, backlinks, etc. Still usable on Ubuntu but responds more like a laggy webpage than a native app.
Recently, you added a GPU acceleration option.
I just tried turning it OFF in Ubuntu, and now Obsidian runs as fast (or even faster) in Ubuntu as in Win10.
Probably like… 50ms response time for UI elements compared to 300ms before (rough guess).
The toggle warns that turning it off will degrade performance, but for me it is the exact opposite.
I assume it has something to do with the integrated graphics chip.
Let me know if I can provide any further information.
