Linux Mint 20 Cinnamon + GeForce GTX 1060 6GB // Performance-Problems

Hello NVIDIA,
im relatively new to Linux Mint and im facing Problems to fully use my GeForce GTX 1060 6GB hardware.

Issues/Performance-problems:

  • Distorted “LM” (Linux Mint) Boot screen
  • Jerky dragging of windwos (Making browser bigger/smaller should not be a performance issue)
  • Overall bad graphics issue
  • If im using the XOrg-Driver, it seems to be smoother but i think its the worse joice in terms of 3D-stuff etc.

Used Driver-Versions:

  • recommended by Linux Mint Driver-Manager: 4040.95.01 server --> Poor performance + X-Server not working
  • with high effort installed the latest one: [450.66] --> Poor performance
  • XOrg driver from Linux Mint Driver-Manager: Better 2D-Performance and less issues

Can you tell me if

  1. im doing something wrong?
  2. there will be a update for better support?

I think my pc hardware is relatively good and it would be not nice to not be able to use my hardware at the best performance-level
