Long story short… I've been exclusively using Linux systems since I was 13. It has been 20 years since I started.
Vid very much related. When I started out, ~20 years ago, "nvidia" was the choice for Linux fags like myself. As a retard, I kept buying such hardware as years went on. Fast forward to current day:
>I have "high-end laptop"
<it is useless :DDDDDDD
Lemme give you fags a TL;DR:
>3 yrs ago, buy super-mega laptop (with NVIDIA) chipset
>bought it b/c it had a pre-installed Ubuntu environment
>years passed, new 'buntu environment came out
>try to upgrade
>uhm… ok… manually download "Manjaro" distribution
>"burn" it to pendrive
<2 months in
>it fried my fucking battery, since, it turns out that le'nvidia fucks with your battery
>right now my battery can take 2mins disconnect, after that it die
>try to use my high-end hardware with contemporary gaymes (directX11 - wine Vulkan)
>low FPS; HIGH TEMPERATURE
>Manjaro completely fucked, can't even get graphic interface w basic driver anymore
>uses some kind of spooky Wayland shit or whatever, games lagg like no tomorrow
>suddenly everything "works"
>I'm merely 10-20 FPS down from Windows setup
>still the best option
>turns out there's no fucking way to make my GPU fans work, no matter what
>GPU gets over 90°C when playing GAEMS
>get used to it
>the same would be around ~70˚C if I used Windows
Thank you NVIDIA!!!!!!!!!!
