I don’t game in Linux at all but I got frustrated by the very high GPU temps/power consumption even when my PC is idle. So I’ve been looking for solutions to lessen my GPU temp/power consumption when using linux, been distro hopping, to no avail, until now. Finally switched from Nvidia driver to Nouveau. Now my power consumption never goes above 26 watts and my temps are doing great.
So my question is, I read Nouveau is around 20% performance of the GPU, aside from this, is there any thing else I will be missing when using Nouveau?
