AMD Performance Issues[edit]

The following issue is being investigated, there are no known solutions currently, simply lower any graphical settings as a workaround.[10]
AMD driver (08/2020) performance issues seem to follow a pattern. FPS cap in game 30fps results in game running at around 25fps. FPS cap at 60fps results in game running around 45-50fps. Setting FPS cap to 72fps should provide constant 60fps ingame. (NEEDS CONFIRMATION)

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/320240/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (320240) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
