I just bought a new computer, with Ryzen 5 5600g (integrated graphics), which I thought I would use until dedicated GPU prices become reasonable again. Unfortunately though I am getting horrible performance in games (non-demanding ones). E.g. in CSGO, on the lowest settings and lowest resolution, I have about 30-50 FPS when things are static, and as soon as the action happens everything freezes long enough that I am shot and dead before I can see the enemy…
According to benchmarks, even on medium settings people are getting well over 100 FPS stably, and on lowest, more than 200 FPS. These benchmarks however are on Windows.
Clearly something is not working well with my setup, but I have no idea where to start…
My hardware is:
Ryzen 5 5600g
B550I aorus pro ax
1x HyperFury 32 GB 3200 MHz RAM
WD black 500 GB SSD
With the latest manjaro iso I got Kernel 5.10. I tried upgrading this to 5.13 but this did not help.
During the installation I chose nonfree drivers, but it appears there are only free drivers available. Currently I have video-linux (from 2018). From mhwd -l I also see video-modesetting and video-vesa, but I am not sure what these are or if I should change something.
Since the integrated GPU is sharing the RAM (in total 1.2 GB), it was suggested in another thread that adding a second RAM module, to get dual channel mode, would be beneficial. In that thread, indeed it had some effect, but not big enough to be the main issue.
I do not know if it is relevant, but in glxgears I get 14k FPS. Also, during installation, I encrypted the root, home and swap partitions with luks.
Do you have some idea what I could try?
Thanks a lot!
