FPS lock in Counterstrike Global Offensive

Hello fellow manjaro users,

Quick description of the problem :
When I start Counterstrike global Offensive my fps are locked to 60 fps although the AMD Ryzen 5 3600 CPU and the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER GPU should be enough to provide at least 120 fps on this game which are the minimum to get a smooth experience

What I have tried so far :

csgo settings

  • Changed the Wait for vertical sync option to disabled, double buffered, and triple buffered
  • Entered fps_max 400 in csgo consol

manjaro and nvidia settings :

  • Went to NVIDIA X server settings ā†’ OpenGL Settings : Allow flipping is checked
  • Went to Manjaro Setting Manager and did Auto install Proprietary Driver

Every thing that I tried was in vain

What I noticed :
I run dota 2 with a max of 120 fps (dota 2 uses Vulkan when csgo uses OpenGL) it never goes higher or goes too much below, Celeste is running 60 fps, but interesting fact Mou&Blade II Bannerlord* which is a more recent game than csgo runs with higher fps than cs and does not seem to have a set limit.

What ā€œIā€ have concluded :
Something may be in the OpenGL and Vulkan settings is locking my fps to a certain value in some games

That is why Iā€™m asking you guys if you have an Idea on solving this problem

Thank you in advance for your answer :slightly_smiling_face: !
