What will be the best Linux distro for best webgl performance? For a Dell precision m6400 core 2 duo p8400 @2.26Ghz and 10gb ram 1066Mhz with Nvidia quadro fx 2700m as it got only 340 driver on Linux which is kinda unsupported now a days.
i use to play a webgl game, so i only need is good performance of webgl on browser, firefox gives less fps so i use brave browser.

I recommend Ubuntu Desktop. I’ve used it the most compared to other operating systems. It’s super lightweight and great for my purposes. In particular, the Ubuntu 20.04.2.0 LTS version that has longer support

Do you think that three Yeats later, mmzf still needs an answer?

OTOH - modern OS (whether Windows or Linux) will struggle on this old C2D laptop.
Sorry, for some reason this came up in my notifications and I didn’t check the date.

Edit: Nevermind, It isn’t three years old. I still think Ubuntu will work fine. I’ve used it on systems with 2GB of RAM and a 2.50ghz duo CPU. The specifications that the OP listed exceed the minimum that Ubuntu mentions (in fact, my 2GB RAM laptop doesn’t meet the minimum and still worked fine).

Try a "lite" distro. Lubuntu, Xubuntu, Linux Lite, Zorin Lite, Ubuntu Mate would all be worth a shot.

If these are too heavy, Bodhi would be a great choice and would almost certainly work wonders for your old machine, I'm using it on a 12 year old Gateway with built-in graphics (meaning, really outdated). My computer is lightning fast with it.

Another good light browser besides Brave is Pale Moon, which is based on Firefox. FF's most recent re-design is straining my old Gateway, but PM works great on it. Pages may load more slowly, but it's very stable, and keeps the CPU load low.
