Revision history [back]

I've got the very same problem on my Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro (which has quite OK hardware). This means I am also stuck on the 4.2.3-300.fc23.x8664 kernel, which fortunately doesn't make gnome-shell sluggish. For the record, not even an external screen on 4.2.3-300.fc23.x8664 gives me sluggishness.

We're both on Intel hardware tough, but mine is slightly newer:

So maybe somewhere in Intel's land of the kernel space we've got a degrade in recent kernels?
