Only time my fps drops is when a pop-up shows on the other screen, but that's probably Gnome to blame.
    I've performance above the average in every game I tested, like 10-15% above Michael's Rx580 tests (with my r9 390x). Tbh, if you don't notice the problem with radeon drivers and csgo on linux you are playing with vsynch or you don't know how to spray an ak in the game.
    Enable the netgraph, cap your FPS to 300 and start shooting at something, even a box, and see how FPS drops. I repeat, wine with nine patch set runs better because there's no translation layer in place.

    i7 [email protected] here and the stutter is visible even at 220fps.

    Odd. I've only experienced performance like that on: a broken graphics stack, last I tried xwayland, one time that ceaseless disk activity impeded performance for a day, and on an AM2+/AM3 system with an Athlon II x3 445 and nvidia 8600-gt (attempting to play TF2)

    though I do recall fairly regular frame skips (consistent, 3 jumps per 2 seconds or so) when I played at 76Hz on Ubuntu a little while ago.

    right now on Antergos, gnome 3.28, xorg, Linux 4.14, i5-4570, HD 5770, all lows, no v-sync, [email protected] I get pretty much flawless performance anytime the gpu isn't a major bottleneck. turning v-sync on makes it 100% smooth. (no, I don't use vsync)

    Is this one of those "You probably don't even know what you're talking about because your rank is so low."? There aren't any noticeable framedrops and the game feels smooth on my PC, that's that. I get that you might have problems, but I guess what I'm trying to say is that it works for some.

    What I'm personally interested in is, why does the next guy running R290 have problems and I got none. I'm using Mesa driver and probably he has also at some point of his installation.

    This would be more interesting if it wasn't dated April of last year.

    CSGO runs fine on my i5-4570 + HD5770 for the most part. little or no stutter, hard to detect lag. one problem with linux in this case is there are so many ways to mess things up... Ubuntu 17.10 was broken upon launch. my best experience so far has been on Antergos + GNOME Xorg session.

    I'd make a windows dual-boot if I had a means of accurately measuring lag, though I am tempted just to see if if feels any different.
