[SOLVED] Radeon RX 550/550X bad performance

My discrete card (Radeon RX 550/550X) have worse performance than integrate one ( Intel UHD Graphics 620). I've noticed that when I try to play CS:GO.

Welcome to the forum. Please edit your post to use [ code ] tags around the inxi output, and use a pastebin client for the Xorg log (google drive requires us to download the file, something most people will not do).

Re: [SOLVED] Radeon RX 550/550X bad performance

xorg log doesn't show problems in the graphical setup.

You have a hybrid graphics system using a PRIME setup .

Post xrandr --listproviders output .
If that looks similar to the example on the prime page, check it's gpu offloading section .

glmark2 again ....

If all you run are OpenGL ES 2 applications it's a great benchmark.

Try unigine-superposition for a modern benchmark or the somewhat older unigine-valley if superposition is to heavy.

Re: [SOLVED] Radeon RX 550/550X bad performance

Those results match my expectations : the amd card performs better then the intel integrated one.

You did mention problems with CS GO, I guess you're running it from Steam ?
if so, are you using steam or steam-native ?

I've installed the steam-native and it looks better. Thank you for help!
