    Very bad Performance - Dirt Rally


    Hey guys,

    I’m new to Antergos, though I’ve used Kubuntu for quite some time, as well as Linux i general.
    Now I’ve decided to give Antergos a try. First on my Laptop, what was quite a good choice and now with my Gaming Machine. Sadly I had to experience a huge difference in gaming performance. Antergos doesn’t even give me half of the FPS I’ve had with Kubuntu. Can someone help?
    I’ve installed XF86-video-ati, mesa (almost everything, except demos) and running on Gnome with Wayland (testet with XOrg, didn’t helped as well).

    My setup:
    AMD FX6150
    AMD 7970 GHZ Edition
    8GB DDR3

    FPS in Kubuntu with integrated benchmark at lowest setting: ~65FPS
    FPS in Antergos with integrated benchmark at lowest setting: ~25FPS

    Hope you can help. Maybe I only forgot to install some driver or dependencies.

    mesa-libgl is installed?

    XF86-video-ati should be right but may you want take a look here:

    Thank you very much, that doubled the performance!
    Still, this was not the complete solution, there was still something missing. As I found out here, there are more packages for Hardware acceleration. And libva-mesa wasn’t installed initially. Now I’m back on around 60FPS. Almost where I ended in Kubuntu. Enough for me.
