    No Compiz Panic!!

    I'm almost in tears ! Just amazing work. Compiz now works on this one machine so smoothly where it was really sluggish before and when enable cube/rotate... !! No Panic or crash!

    Way things look so far, Raring has already superseded Precise and Quantal. My hat is off to Mark and the Unity team and Sam S.

    Well, for me and my Intel graphics Compiz uses over 20% of my quad-core CPU, not good. OTOH all seem to be very quick and we can be sure the CPU usage will be fixed. After all, it's Intel. <smile>

    Very low stats here for a single core.

    After today's update compiz is using about 1% of CPU. So the fix came quickly. Speed, quickness is not an issue, very fast code.

    I aquired an old Intel 64bit 554 with HT. I'm going to slip that in and see what happens.

    Dumb question - can you get 400% utilization on a quad-core?

    Or does 20% mean 20% on each one of the cores at once?

    This is a dual core with Compiz rattling about 8% +/- is that 8% of one processor or 8% of both - on
    Intel Corporation Atom Processor 1.6 gHz D4xx/D5xx/N4xx/N5xx Integrated Graphics Controller
    No clue what intel graphics that is.

    Of course my Android tablet's Nvidia Tegra 1 gHz processor/graphics runs rings around it, I don't know if that's no compiz/unity in Android or a much better processor/graphics integration.

    Both are dual core 1 Gb memory...Oh, all I've got up is Firefox entering this post and top on a terminal window.

    That's kind of strange, my netbook has an atom 270, single core with hyperthreading, so it shows two cores, and a 945 graphics chip set, compiz at idle shows .3 - 1.3% cpu usage. I'm just setting Ubuntu up on it, as I really don't see any speed advantage with Xubuntu.

    When comparing your tablet to your netbook, you are comparing apples to oranges. My tablet, Eeepad Transformer Prime runs ice cream sandwich supplied from the manufacturer, if you had just installed Android 4+ from google, that wasn't optimized for the system you would see the same types of perceived problems, you see with your netbook.

    It's all wlel and good to check what kind of resources your system is using, but how does it work in day to day usage? Do you find that it generally feels like it's running in molasses, or does it run well enough that you don't really have any complaints, aside from a pre-conceived notion?

    For a quad-core when 20% is stated it points to each core at 20%. It could mean at one core is at 100% when 25% is stated. Anyway, 13.04 is running nicely now that that issue with compiz is fixed on my Intel HD3000 graphics box.
