Please describe your issue below:

Hello and best wishes 2024!
I have a brand new VIM4 NPU bare board in fanless aluminum case with power supply and Khadas cable.
Khadas Ubuntu versions with gnome desktop work perfectly without any slowdown in both emmc and sd version but armbian desktops do not work!
Only xfce (via oowow or latest version) launches after several minutes but then presents slowdowns.
All versions with cinnamon (oblique lines) and gnome (armbian logo) freeze after launching the desktop environment whether with an installation on emmc sd or usb…
No problems with server versions, only desktop versions…
I wonder if it is the fact of not having a fan and/or the NPU chip that makes the Armbian desktops incompatible?
Thank you for your help !
