I think that is beside the point. AFAIK you still need to shuffle memory
around when moving widgets on the screen no matter what they are. Offloading
this to the GPU is a clear winner. That being said, there are still parts of
Compiz that rely upon the CPU (e.g. wobbly windows calculations).

The most dominant gpu on the desktop at the moment is Intel integrated video
card and that one runs Compiz arguably better than any other board.

At DISIS we have built near silent machines from scratch with the following
specs:

C2D 2.67GHz
2 GB RAM
Nvidia 7600GT (or 8600GT)
2 x 250GB HD (RAID 1)
Etc.

Video cards are not only fanless but are also lead-free. The entire rig is
cooled by a single <1200RPM fan including the PSU. Suffice to say that the
loudest part in the machine are HDs spinning idly. BTW, the case we use is
not one of those radiator aluminum rigs...

We use Compiz with all the bells and whistles in conjunction with FA-101
(Freebob). At 5.33ms I have not had a single xrun yet.

I agree that compiz should not be a requirement. That being said, after
talking with Cory, my understanding is that Compiz would be used for very
basic stuff in its vanilla incarnation with most of the bells and whistles
disabled which should introduce performance advantages.

Again, I agree to an extent. I am at a point where I want to have a pleasing
desktop experience. I am glad to say my ratpoison days are now over...

Best wishes,

Ico
