Intel HD Graphics slower than how its should be

I am using Antergos right now and i am a linux user for couple years. I just noticed that i am having this issue since i started to use linux.

My first distribution was ubuntu and i had this problem, desktop environment was fluid and drivers was loaded but i was getting %25 lower performance at 3d rendering (Ubuntu 17.04, lxde, BombSquad was running at average 45 fps and xonotic glx - big key bench had 24 as lowest fps)

Then i switched to clear linux and suprized by the results (clear linux, xfce, BombSquad was running at average 60 fps and xonotic glx - big key bench had 38 as lowest fps)

After i am updated to version 20320 clear linux had great performance drop in graphical applications (clear linux, xfce, BombSquad was running at average 45 fps and xonotic glx - big key bench had 28 as lowest fps)

My github issue about this problem: https://github.com/clearlinux/distribution/issues/9 Heavy frame drops in graphical applications · Issue # 9 · clearlinux/distribution · GitHub

After no response received i switched to Antergos with xfce desktop environment on my old hard disk (i still keep clear linux at my second hard disk for if someone requests a feed back), then i received same performance (Antergos, xfce, BombSquad was running at average 46 fps and xonotic glx - big key bench had 27 as lowest fps)

Here is my Antergos issue page: https://forum.antergos.com/topic/9008/intel-hd-graphics-is-slower-than-it-should-be https://forum.antergos.com/topic/9008/intel-hd-graphics-is-slower-than-it-should-be

Antergos issue page has lots of information and also github issue page has information too.

I couldn't found anyone else heaving this issue.

my computer is Toshiba Satellite C655 with 4GB of RAM and Intel Core i3 i3-380M processor, using a secondary VGA monitor with 1360x768 resolution

Hello tuxutku,

 

 

I understand you are having problems in regards the frame rate, I apologize for any inconvenience.

 

 

This unit is out of interactive support, this means that we no longer provide support for the processor that your system has. Nevertheless, I wanted to help you, that is why I looked and found something that could improve the performance of the unit. I cannot guarantee that it will fix the problem however.

 

 

This is the latest micro-code for the processor you are using:

I hope you find this helpful.

 

 

 

Regards,

Hello tuxutku,

 

 

Thank you for your response,

 

 

I understand your position and I apologize for the inconvenience. Nevertheless what I can recommend you to do is to try to get in contact with Linux Forums for further assistance. This unit is out of interactive support by us. I tried with the microcode as those are the resources we have available to troubleshoot or fix problems with the unit.

 

 

I apologize for any inconvenience.

 

 

 

Regards,
