Battery and power efficiency for me are specially important metrics to control the usage.
I had two laptops with burned GPUs in the past, one due to problems with a "performance" switch and the other I couldn't even narrow down the reason but the GPU killed the whole motherboard (technician said). It gets even worse considering I'm in a tropical country. I even considered an actual desktop but I don't have the space.
One thing you have to accept when buying a laptop with dedicated GPU is that they are short lived and the more power they use, the hotter they get, the faster they will die, no matter how much engineering they get going on laptops.
I understand that most people don't really care enough usage, power efficiency or buying another one but laptops and electronic in general are extremely expensive in my country, at least twice the international price, so saving a bit of money by extending the lifespan is very beneficial, specially in situations like this were it's just wasted watts for no reason.
thanks for info, not very happy about it... I hope AMD APU support will get better soon.
Yep, there is a regression of that WLAN driver...
Hey DGLT, if I may ask a question?
I've been holding off on the update out of worry it'll make my laptop (iGPU/dGPU gtx1060) wonky after you recently helped me get Prime set up for it.
You helped me set up switching and I'm wondering how badly this update is going to kick my laptop for my needs.
From what I've learned, Prime Sync prevents screen-tearing similar to V-sync, but I don't quite understand how this compares to Render Offload?
In slightly simpler terms, for a laptop, what are the issues that are happening with the loss of Prime Sync? Is there nothing else to pick up the slack for screen tearing? Sorry for the newbie style question
The xfce edition still wont start (black screen, as reported here) on my laptop.
I've been waiting for this release for a refresh of my ThinkPad X1 Extreme (gen1). I plan to run it in dedicated GPU mode (GTX 1050) full time and disable the onboard video.
Am I correct in my understanding of this thread that I'm gonna have a bad time unless I continue to run the 4.19 kernel? I was hoping 5.4 would improve operations overall (was specifically waiting for a new LTS) but it's not sounding like that's going to be the case here.
then prime sync wont be an issue, it's only needed to sync the nvidia output to the integrated gpu, if you have the option to use nvidia exclusively then use it and avoid the optimus bs.
there's no need to hold off on updates, you can still update and continue to use the other kernels like 4.19 or 5.3 until it gets figured out. i notified nvidia of the issue but no response other than they are working on it. you can have more than 1 kernel installed at the same time.
Updated and done, fairly new user here so take my experience with a pinch of salt, but nothing seems broken. If anything, something feels just a 'touch speedier', maybe it's just me
Bearing in mind that I'm running Prime Switch with my GTX1060 at all times, so can't comment on the Prime Sync issues

Seems to be the case.

I have Vega 8. I just tested manjaro-xfce-18.1.4-191210-linux54.iso and the graphics are messed up. The gnome edition is fine however (manjaro-gnome-18.1.4-191210-linux54.iso) and so is my cinnamon install with kernel 54.

same results with option Free Drivers ?
if possible edit command on boot ( E) and change :
parameters: BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-x86_64 lang=en_GB keytable=gb tz=UTC
driver=free nouveau.modeset=0 i915.modeset=0 amdgpu.modeset=1 radeon.modeset=0
misobasedir=manjaro misolabel=MJRO1814 quiet systemd.show_status=1
Yeah, it makes no difference. I tried just changing the iso boot option to free:
parameters: BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-x86_64 lang=en_GB keytable=gb tz=UTC driver=free nouveau.modeset=1 i915.modeset=1 radeon.modeset=1 misobasedir=manjaro misolabel=MJRO1814 quiet systemd.show_status=1 apparmor=1 security=apparmor
and the exact command line you specified. Same result.
when you get to the desktop, go to settings and disable the compositor. "widow effects" i think xfce settings calls it and see if the screen corruption is gone
"Windows Manager Tweaks"
i had "window" correct.
Yep, it's the compositor. There's no problems when it's off.
after you get manjaro installed you can switch from xfwm's compositor to
picom (formerly compton).
Thanks but I use cinnamon, I was just trying it out.
