idea Scrolling Laggy on Mac OS X Lion?


As you might know already, I am using a pretty beefy MacBook Pro (running OS X 10.7.3) for my work.

However, one thing which annoys me is the choppiness of the scrolling in Chrome. For example, after opening Engadget, a simple up down scroll will appear extremely choppy on the OS. Things are perfect when scrolling on [E] or when browsing Engadget on Safari though.

What gives? Anyone else notice this?

Do I need to enable GPU accel or something?

Regards,
Karan Misra

Re: Scrolling Laggy on Mac OS X Lion?

Finally ! i guess i am not the only one who noticed this, i just did not bring it up as an issue cause i did not want the "oh look the apple hater has started bashing again" comments.

The only difference for me is that i find the scrolling as choppy as chrome in safari as well.

I went in and enabled GPU acceleration in Chrome. Also, I had forced the Integrated GPU to be used only. When I restored it to 'Dynamic' switching, its pretty smooth (better than Windows.)

Interesting, i never noticed this in windows and only when i switched to OSX i noticed this issue, may be OSX is a transparent OS.

So nice to hear that the problems are over, but I do think that most of OS X Lion users will not be able to help themselves !!!

Re: Scrolling Laggy on Mac OS X Lion?

I face a similar issue! I have a MBP 13, and when I open various webpages simultaneously, say I am on one tab and two tabs are loading in the background, now when I scroll on the current tab it lags/is slow/takes time to respond just like in a smartphone. Seems like processor or ram bottleneck :/
