i have tightvnc server installed on my raspi2. i am connecting to it from a PC running linux mint. after i bring up the virtual desktop of the pi, i open a few programs, let's say file manager and a terminal. when moving those windows around there is always a lot of tearing and choppiness. I was wondering then why that would happen since i would assume the graphics are rendered by my host system which has an i5-4670k and gtx770 graphics card. is there that much overhead attributed to vncserver? or maybe there are some tweaks to the settings i can make?
The screen information is first rendered by the RPi, then transferred over the network, then rendered again by the remote computer.
(The remote system does not render screen information for the RPi).
The network is the main 'bottleneck'
It might help some to lower the screen resolution.
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Buster w/ Desktop OS.
