Bug Description

I will summarize here what I put at https://discourse.ubuntu.com/t/ubuntu-23-04-testing-week/34246/6

On Ubuntu 23.04, if I install it, it works fine but there is a considerable lag for everything. This is when using Wayland. If I do not change the custom.conf gdm to not use wayland, I can get in but I can not interact with any windows. Context menus and sub menus open but do not do anything. The only way for me to get to the terminal was to open nautilus/files from the Dock, then right click any empty space and select terminal. The moment I did that I had a couple of seconds before it crashed the terminal. But was able to get a picture of the hardware after my 3rd attempt.

If I do put in on xorg, then an image I posted on the 1st link happens and it stays there, does not matter if I change tty, it always shows and needed to reinstall 23.04 to be able to go back to wayland. But if I use wayland I can actually feel the lag and the interaction with windows and all. This started happening all today after applying all the latest updates for 23.04 (I did not update since I think since several days back).

The hardware that I was using for testing is:

CPU - 13900k
MOBO - Asus Z790 Hero
VID: Nvidia 4090 (Drivers were automatically installed during setup)
SSD - SN850x

It is a computer just for Ubuntu 23.04 testing right now.

Luis, bug reports filed against 'launchpad' will never reach those that can help resolve a problem that you are experiencing with an installation of Ubuntu on your computer.

Your problem, which if still relevant, probably needs more information from you so I'm retasking this bug report to both Xorg and Wayland. That will bring your problem to the attention of Ubuntu's Desktop team.

Sorry, did not know it was filed against launchpad. Did not even know the option to set it was set to launchpad. This issue is also related to this one https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/subiquity/+bug/2012983 just in case. Same hardware.
