I would like to confirm this bug for gnome.
I have intel 960 graphics and a Core2 Duo T9300 @ 2.50GHz .
A good way to reproduce it is to browse among available wireless networks by clicking on the nm applet. It uses those animated bars to show strength of the networks. It takes only few of them to peak one of the cores completely (even though it IS a fast computer). Moving mouse in that window becomes sluggish.

I think it certainly is related to those animations as the network selection pop-up doesn't have much else.

Using other theme then human is alright (all the other themes seem to have static bars).

Since it happens on xfce and gnome, maybe gtk is to blame.

This is the graphics I have:
