This has nothing to do with X and everything to do with either bad drivers or badly written apps. If you are getting actual glitches (and not just "not quite fast enough" redraws of complicated windows) then it's definitely not an X problem. Windows apps have this too, although since Windows now has compositing, it's not present any more unless you switch to classic mode.
