I’m using Kubuntu 22.04 with latest Nvidia drivers, laptop is Legion 5 (Ryzen 7 and Nvidia GTX 1650Ti).
For some reason
kwin_x11 is using GPU all the time and this makes GPU temperature around 50C which makes the fans run all the time.I tried with
kwin_x11 --replace and it helps for a few minutes, but then again the usage goes back to around 30%.
I disabled blur and transparency effects.
This is the output from
nvidia-smi pmon -c 1:
# gpu pid type sm mem enc dec command # Idx # C/G % % % % name 0 8154 G - - - - Xorg 0 11300 G - - - - plasmashell 0 11390 G - - - - jetbrains-toolb 0 11717 G - - - - common - 0 16790 G - - - - firefox 0 17355 G - - - - chrome --type=g 0 77627 G - - - - krunner 0 77705 G 42 9 - - kwin_x11
Is there anything else I can disable to lower the GPU usage.
