PI4B - Graphical User Interface Question.

Currently the GUI preforms lots like windows, before video card drives are installed. especially web with chrome, etc. I am not complaining its still very useable, This Chromium HW GUI acceleration that is currently disabled with the PI4B... once this is Fixed and enabled, Will that make over all OS...

Re: Raspberry Pi 4B - Mouse Cursor lag in 4k

i think its a 30hz thing, i tried 1080p 30hz, and its the same, i think in-order for me to do 60hz 4k I need to connect to the display port, not HDMI.

Raspberry Pi 4B - Mouse Cursor lag in 4k

Tried adjusting the Mouse settings, seems the Cursor preforms just fine in 1080p but in 4k its laggy. anyone else having this issue? also anyway to adjust the mouse scroll wheel speed? Also youtube videos in chromium look very bad / choppy in a window, in full screen even worse, and that is in 1080p...

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 Model B touchscreen

yeah the price and the resolution
