Welcome :slight_smile: ,

if I knew what you were talking about, maybe.
What is AF and where does the value come from with 10fps?

Hi guys.

The value comes from the fact GUI application working slow like its have 10 frames per second
Its clunky, moving weird, i also disable some animations options didn't help.

So an estimate this 10 fps, so a kind of slow motion.
Good hardware.
Well, first of all, is there a newer BIOS?

I have much worse hardware and everything runs smoothly without me having to turn anything off.

The bios is up to date.
i may found why that is happening,

i cant change it to proprietary driver.
But i do have installed NVIDIA driver

Right click on video-nvidia-dkms, install.

btw, how do you install?

i tried but its failing ... can`t replace packages cz they already exist.
I installed it by downloading a .run file from Nvida repo.

Wrong/fault.
Use last working snapshot before you installed this run file.
Then install like above.

Check which tasks are consuming CPU (percentage and frequency.

Try stopping some utilities daemons/services, like ananicy or others. (not all at once...)

Yes i dive in full debug mode to find the issue.
I also reinstalled the OS , tried different Kernels, now the time to check if KDE don`t like me and that is personal between me and KDE.

But thank you.
