I’m running Fedora 27 (HP Z600 dual Xeon workstation, GTX 1060 6GB, dual monitor setup), and since upgrading to kernel 4.14.16-300.fc27.x86_64, only the 390.25 driver packaged by RPMFusion installs cleanly. It appears to perform well in general, and games like Shadow Warrior run just fine, but WebGL is slow on both Chrome 64.0.3282.140 and Firefox 58.0.1. Youtube video playback takes several seconds to become stable on Chrome (did not notice similar issue on Firefox). CPU usage does not seem to spike, despite obvious program render slowdown. The video playback issues go away if disabling Chrome hardware acceleration.
Curiously, the WebGL application that’s slow on the browsers runs fast and without issue on nwjs 63.0.3239.132 - I’m wondering, could this have something to do with the Spectre mitigations added into the 390 drivers?
Edit: just tried nwjs 64.0.3282.140, and no slowdown there, either.
These issues did not manifest on the 387.22 drivers - for business reasons, I’m forced to downgrade.
PS: first time poster, please try to go easy on me :)
PS2: tried 390.25 packaged by negativo17; nothing changed.
PS3: installed 387.34 using package from NVIDIA’s site; working without issue.
