Poor FPS in Unigine Heaven versus windows
jsheedy Jan 25
My System Info

Linux Distribution: Ubuntu 22.10
Desktop Environment: Gnome
Graphics Card: ASUS NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Laptop GPU 8GB
GPU Driver Version: NVIDIA 525.78.01

Have you checked for system updates?: [Yes/No] Yes

If this is to do with Steam, please add your system read-out from Steam -> Help -> System Information (please put that into Pastebin/Gist as linked above!):

If this is not Steam, you can still give us a system readout using inxi with "inxi -SbCGxx" in terminal (please put that into Pastebin/Gist as linked above!):


You can note your issue below here
This is a new laptop Asus TUF Dash F15 dual boot windows11/ubuntu22.10
When running Unigine Heaven benchmark with Phoronix Test Suite, see about 70-80 FPS under Linux. When running the same benchmark under windows I get around 300fps. This was running 800x600 windowed mode. Not really sure what to look at. Maybe something with the Intel/Nvidia dual gpu setup? I could also be running the the test wrong.

Note any particular steps to reproduce it below here

After setting the 3070 to performance mode from Nvidia On-Demand in the Nvidia settings, the Unigine Heaven benchmark actually tested out faster than Windows 11.

That means it was using the Intel one previously.

Just wanted to provide another bit of information. After setting nvidia card to performance mode I was having issues starting steam from the taskbar icon. I had to right click it and start with the Intel GPU as opposed to the Nvidia card.
