        Could You please elaborate on this particular bug?

        Are You seeing this with
        Option "TripleBuffering" "1"
        in Your xorg.conf or rather with
        dxgi.numBackBuffers = 3
        inside Your dxvk.conf ?

        That being asked, my personal observation on the matter of Triple-Buffering (the traditonal one with two back-buffers [a.k.a. mailbox mode], not the DirectX mode where the additional buffer is just in a queue) is that with modern GPUs packing quite substantial boost clocks in comparison with their base clocks, having them constantly do unneccessary work in the form of frames that might never get displayed will lead to eventual thermal throttling, in which case the boost mode will be unavailable when it might actually be required, such as computing an unusually demanding scene in a game (classic example: a sudden explosion).

        Are You generally using triple-buffering when gaming, and how are Your experiences with it?
