I was having a very similar problem of viewport flickering in Fedora 35 in Blender 2.93, 3.0 and 3.1. The problem went away after updating Mesa on my system, which only required a 34 MB download. Thanks.

The update command was simply

sudo dnf update mesa*

Okay— Actually, "Using fallback" seems to be caused by Boolean modifier in 'FAST' mode with overlapping geometry, and the slow performance may be caused by that geometry being fairly poly-heavy and then being propagated along a series of other Boolean modifiers.

Without knowing how exactly the stale data in question is structured, this also raises some security questions for me. Does the kept panel include its input fields? Suppose I have an add-on panel from a proprietary cloud hosting or rendering service. I've input an API key into the panel, and saved the file. I then uninstall the add-on, so I cannot see the panel and have no way of know it's still in the file. I upload a stripped-down version of the file to a website like StackExchange. Is my API key now floating around in a .blend on the open Web?

@Abnilson Rafael (UltraBurstXD) I'd like to add that you shouldn't have to let weak hardware discourage you from CGI if it's something you're interested in or enjoy. I used to use a single-threaded Athlon64 with a similarly ancient and weak nForce 630 back in the Blender 2.5 days, I've heard of people who used original (1990s era) Pentiums around the same time and made amazing art, and I still rely on an Intel IGPU most of the time.

Will (WCN) added a comment to T86234: Inconsistent rendering experience on SoC Computer, Intel HD Graphics card.

Again, "normal", "good", and "bad" are all subjective— They're not software bugs, they're opinions and judgements. And from the hardware you've listed and the scene settings you've described, the behaviour you've described sounds entirely "normal" to me, or at least plausible.

Will (WCN) added a comment to T86234: Inconsistent rendering experience on SoC Computer, Intel HD Graphics card.

What is the specific problem, and expected behaviour? "Slow" on its own is vague, subjective, and a product of many factors, including hardware. Is it, E.G., 50% slower than it was in the last version? Or is it just "slow"? "Remarkable quality" isn't really related to speed. "Incorrectly" is also vague, unless you specify in what actual way it's incorrect.
