      Does mesa_glthread=true work on virgl hosts? If so, how do I pass it to qemu/virgl before booting my VMs?

        For those of you who don't have Minecraft and want to try out a free open source Minecraft clone, check out Minetest.

          I think Valve will fix the issue with CS:GO, as they will want the most performance on the deck, hopefully this flag will be enabled in the future by default and have blacklist rather than whitelist.

            So I understand it will only work with the official Minecraft launcher, which means if I use an unofficial launcher, I'll still have to set mesa_glthread=true manually, right?

              Are there any comparisons to windows perf?

                Wouldn't really describe Minetest as "Minecraft clone". Aside from core gameplay (procedurally generated voxel world with mining and building) they are not very similar. It's still worth to check Minetest anyway (even if you have Minecraft) not only because it's free and open source but also because there are many mods (yes, even mods that tries to make Minetest like Minecraft) that can add many things to game.

                  Btw, is there any list/link where I can see for which games mesa_glthread is enabled?

                    Not sure if this is the entire list, but from the article: https://cgit.freedesktop.org/mesa/me...-defaults.conf and search for mesa_glthread
