Poor performance/Low Framerate With Native Games/Steam Runtime.

Having a strange issue with only Linux native/Steam Runtime games. Wine/Proton games seem to run just fine. So far I have been able to reproduce on every Linux native game I have. Here is some system info.

Searched the forums but couldn't seem to find anyone else with the same issue. Hoping someone else has seen this before. Thanks in advance.

Re: Poor performance/Low Framerate With Native Games/Steam Runtime.

What strange issue(s) do you have with (what) game(s)? Can you write more about it?

It looks like you don't have nvidia binary drivers installed or enabled. With that GPU on nouveau driver you can have poor performance because of low core and memory default frequencies that this driver can't make it higher because of nvidia GPU encrypted firmware since Geforce 900 series and up.

Re: Poor performance/Low Framerate With Native Games/Steam Runtime.

OpenGL renderer string: llvmpipe (LLVM 11.0.0, 256 bits)

llvmpipe is software rendering that's only used when no HW rendering is possible.

kshelton, this looks like programs under steam & wine use your nvidia card directly, but something in your X setup is very wrong.
Please post lspic -k, xorg log , and the contents of *.conf files in /etc/X11 and /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d folders

Multi-init booting with apg Openrc and systemd coexisting
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them
