I'm getting poor performance with my acer f5 laptop on linux. It uses an intel i5 7th gen cpu and gtx950m graphics, with 8gb of ram.
By poor performance I mean animations are choppy and actions are sometimes slow (like opening an app or menu). Youtube videos are pretty much unwatchable. Every app that uses hardware acceleration is slow.
Since I dual boot with windows 10, which works smoothly and without any of these issues, I pretty much excluded the possibility of a hardware issue. I do however notice that the cooling fan works harder on linux, on windows it's pretty much silent unless there's something intensive. Temps are ok, around 65C. I cleaned the fan and replaced the thermal paste just to be sure.
I have tried all the nvidia drivers, and switching to the intel integrated gpu. I've ran out of options.
