    Phoronix: How To Make CS:GO Run Much Faster On AMD Catalyst For Linux

    Should you be using a Radeon graphics card with the AMD Catalyst Linux driver and are disappointed by the poor performance, there is a very easy workaround for gaining much better performance under Linux... In some cases a simple tweak will yield around 40% better performance!

      Did you test with Multicore rendering activated? Because you get about the same framerate I get with my GTX 670 with Multicore off. With Multicore on I get easily above 200 FPS.
      Multicore rendering still has a memory leak issue in CS:GO though, but it works for a while.

        I think there is nothing to add there, they know this is about VBOs Some games suffers more or less depends how BOs are used, even mesa drivers have these caps with same games.

          This is unrelated to the ingame multicore setting, and yes, it was probably enabled, because the performance is even worse without it on AMD Catalyst. There are NVIDIA and Intel specific hacks in the csgo.sh launchscript aswell.

            Sorry, I had to ask... In your report, why did you use '\' instead of '/' ? Also, I suggest you give them links to these reddit/phoronix threads.

              You are a troll, but this was a lousy example. Catalyst is a closed source driver. This issue would've been fixed 5 minutes after it's been reported if it was open source. Also it would probably been discovered faster.

                I've let AMD and Catalyst go years go... and became a much calmer person.

                  Stuff like this is why I have stuck with nvidia since my first card the Riva TNT and never looked back. AMD GPUs just, I dunno, have a less then stellar track record.

                  And I hate hate hate hate to say this but the csgo linux version is not up to snuff compared to the windows version, it just isn't. When it first came out I tried to power through, playing it, reporting bugs, etc. In the process I quickly dropped five ranks. I'm too old to care about that stuff but it is a good measuring stick.

                    Good article.

                    This is extremely disappointing from AMD. A case where they already know how to make things work faster but it's not applied due to negligence.
