I just switched from Fedora and Win10 over to Garuda.
The reason is, that I still need Win10 for gaming and wanted to try if Garuda is an alternative.
So instead of using Windows for Gaming and Fedora for working, I gave the combination a try.
After installing and customizing Garuda yesterday I noticed it has a really bad performance.
The Icons on the latte-dock stutter when I hover my mouse, windows struggle a bit to build up and the application menu is also slow and stutters when hover trough the categories.
When open Youtube and search for "Garuda Linux" everyone seems to have top performance with high responsiveness and no stutter at all. As I am used to have on windows and fedora.
OS: Garuda Linux
Packages: 1635 (pacman)
DE: Plasma 5.22.4
WM Theme: Sweet-Dark
CPU: Intel i7-4790K (8) @ 4.4GHz
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970
GPU Driver: GM204 Proprietary
Memory: 4.29GiB / 15.56GiB
So I guess its not my Hardware but the fact that Garuda is installed on a HDD and not an SSD.
Now my Question: Is there a way to install the OS on two Harddrives? Like: Core-System on SSD and the rest (non system tools, programms, games) on an HDD?
Or have you other tips what I could do to optimize performance? It really feels slow and unresponsive compared to win10 and Fedora (Cinnamon).
The Fedora is backed up on an external harddrive in my desk. So there is no loss.
But before I can finaly uninstall Windows 10 forever I need to have an alternative first. And the SSD is not big enough for a Full Windows and a Full Garuda. Thats why I thought to split Garuda in performance and customization.
