GAMES running with proton not using amd

In some of my previous posts I have mentioned that steam games are not using amd dgpu, But it looks like steam games that are using proton are the one not using amd dgpu the linux native games are utilizing the amd dgpu. is there any solution for making games running with proton to make utilize the dgpu. because the games using intel gpu lags very much.

What driver configs (mhwd -li) do you have installed?


Fair warning: I don’t have or use an AMD card or even an Intel GPU. This is entirely information gathered from the interwebz.

According to this site:

You can choose your discrete card for the applications who need it the most ( 3D modellers, games …) by prepending the


environment variable:

$ DRI_PRIME=1 *your_progam*

For example:

$ DRI_PRIME=1 glxinfo | grep "OpenGL renderer"

gives the output:

OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on AMD TURKS

compare with

$ glxinfo | grep "OpenGL renderer" OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Haswell Mobile

There’s probably much more to it, but that page’ll help. I think.

I have tried these not working. Thanks for your reply

Probably an DXVK Problem? Maybe change to OpenGL instead Vulkan.

Try start the games with:
