Description of the issue:
I’ve been running Brave for years, after this latest update i’m seeing incredibly slow performance. My guess is maybe 3 frames a second. Unusable. This impacts:
- switching tabs
- typing into url bar
- highlighting text
- mousing over anything
I’ve also disabled all my extensions to ensure there’s no 3rd party conflicts.
Reproduces how often:
- After complete restart
- Both my user profiles
- On all websites
Operating System and Brave Version(See the
About Brave page in the main menu):
Windows 10 - 32 GB RAM - Core i7 4 core / 8 thread 2.7ghz
220.127.116.11 - Upgraded Chromium to 100.0.4896.79
- This started the morning of April 5th.
- Microsoft Edge, also a chromium variant, works fine with extensions
I also tried deleted all the extensions (as opposed to disabling them)
I also used the “restore to default” under settings
This had no impact.
Update: Turning off hardware acceleration seems to have fixed the issue. Any idea why?
Whats your GPU/CPU?
If its older that might be the reason. I doubt it is. But it might be a good way to start troubleshooting.
No problems until the recent update then incredibly choppy performance browsing and attempting to watch videos on netflix/hulu/prime. Went ahead turned off hardware acceleration and relaunched. Problem appears to be gone.
Windows 10 - 32 GB Ram - Intel I7 7700k - Nvidia 1080
Brave version 18.104.22.168 - Chromium 100.0.4896.79
Try updating NVIDIA driver.
Already using the latest Nvidia driver that was released on 3/22/22.
Nvidia Driver Version: 512.15
Problem still occurring.
I believe I found the problem. With the update there appeared to be a conflict between the browser and a setting in the Nvidia Control Panel.
The setting you want to adjust is Background Application Max Frame Rate and set it to off.
