View Full Version : Fedora 18 and Intel NUC DCCP847DYE (Celeron) and 100% CPU XORG Fix

23rd March 2013, 08:05 PM
Recently installed Fedora 18 (live) on Intel NUC DCCP847DYE

Install went smooth, but realized sluggish performance, and slow response in the gnome shell. After looking at "top", realized XORG (x11) was consuming 80-105% CPU Utilization (dual core Celeron)

After some research both on the NUC hardware and some X11 config. The Solution is quite simple:

Create/Edit "/etc/X11/xorg.conf"

Inert the following:

Section "Device"
Identifier "intel"
Driver "intel"
Option "AccelMethod" "sna"


Now CORG is next to nothing as it should be.

Great little LINUX Install for under $200 and 4inches in size.

Just wanted to pass it along for anyone using the same platform.
