Made a clean install with Lion and it now turns out that the graphics (Radeon HD 2600 Pro 256MB) on my Core 2 Duo iMac are way to slow (or insufficient VRAM) for the Lion UI.


Especially fullscreen apps animations and opening Launchpad folders are extremely choppy. Not much fun the way it is.


I mean come on, a mac, which can play WoW pretty well should be able to push 2D Graphics around, right?


When booting up the UI is fast, but after letting the iMac on for a while or waking it from sleep the graphics are choppy again.


Anyone else having this problem?




iMac, Mac OS X (10.7)
