I recently bought a Dell XPS 17 9700 and installed Manjaro. Unfortunately I’m having some issues:
The system feels slow in general. My guess is, it’s because of the nvidia graphics card, but I’m not sure. The reason is:
Every time there’s some animation there’s a little “lag”. E.g.:
- If I open gpick the system immediately gets slower and a bit more unresponsive - until I close it again.
- If I scroll fast through a web page while browsing the part of the page that becomes visible doesn’t become visible smoothly. It is like it is built with bricks / I’m watching an interlaced jpeg getting loaded via a slow internet connection. See example below. I found that all animations in general are kind of slow/laggy.
- Websites with heavy UI/animations are very slow and unresponsive. No matter how many tabs are opened.
I don’t know what kind of information I need to provide. Therefore, I included some mhdw and inxi output. If you need more, just tell me:

Additionally: How can I switch between the nvidia and the integrated gpu?
