Hello. I have recently updated to the Linux 5.9.11 kernel. I am aware that Nvidia have had some issues updating their drivers for this kernel, but I was under the impression that the problems had been solved. It seems, though, that the Nvidia drivers I’ve installed are severely imbalanced. Running the
top command shows excessivly high idle CPU usage when the drivers are installed, primarily through X11 (Xorg) and Nvidia:
PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND 1888 root 20 0 0 0 0 S 44.7 0.0 14:43.05 nvidia-+ 2869 ******** 20 0 328828 111748 83856 S 23.8 0.3 8:41.89 Xorg
and the mouse lags considerably. I would love to get to the bottom of this problem. Would anyone have any suggestions? I am not very familiar with kernels and drivers.
