It did got better after moving its settings to XRender instead of OpenGL.


This does happen on some machines. It shouldn't be so. This is a dead giveaway that the graphics stack implementation of OpenGL is not performing anywhere near as well as it should on that particular machine.

Xrender should not be able to beat OpenGL (at anything, let alone at hosting Kwin).

OpenGL is not KDE4.
