View Full Version : high gnome-shell usage

11th March 2012, 02:36 PM
I found out that gnome-shell CPU usage is very high even when application runs on quite low FPS (around 30). I first encountered this problem on my opengl application, where it hangs the CPU when displaying (already drawn) scene on the screen (tested on SDL and Allegro). Gnome-shell has high CPU usage also with other applications/games.
I don't have ATI drivers installed yet, because I am not sure if they are yet fully compatible. May it can be the cause? I heard that ATI will release a new version of catalyst soon, but I dont know if it is true and if it fixes the bugs it had.
