Description of the issue:
Sometimes the scrolling in Brave Browser becomes choppy, so that if you scroll fast, you can see the website rendered by grey squares, even on old nearly completely plain text websites, with very high cpu load, like 80-100% instead of the regular 10-20% “Modern” websites like youtube become nearly unusable with reaction times in seconds if a video is loaded. Or just entering text on this website brave community website causes a full CPU load. Often this state goes away after a couple of minutes, sometimes it takes much longer
How can this issue be reproduced?
Unfortunately, even after a full year with this issue, I could not fully identify the trigger of mysterious condition. But it most often starts if I use heavy websites like Twitter or youtube.
My gut reaction is that it could be related to my hardware/gpu configuration. I use a old Intel 2520m processor with HD3000 onboard graphics and Windows 10 20H2 and a high WQHD resolution.
There are no “official” drivers for Windows 10 anymore. At a low resolution, the CPU load is reduced and the problem might get unnoticed. Is it possible, that hardware acceleration fails intermittently? How could one check that? Is the root cause the driver or brave/chromium or something completely differently? I really have no idea.
I appreciate any help!
Smooth scrolling, low cpu loads, all the time
