Random Slowdowns in GTAV

Hey all,

First post here, so please excuse any etiquette not being followed.

I am facing random slowdowns or Lag Spikes as it is referred to in a few other forums. To brief it; I reach satisfying frame rates, around 70-90, and then, there are abrupt and erratic FPS drops that last for a few seconds. This makes the experience choppy.

Some info about the system: Meets the system requirements for the game, using Xfce, running Custom Proton - Glorious Eggroll 7.0rc6, have the latest Vulkan and DXVK necessities.

I am new user not just to the forum but to the OS as well, so I hope you know what to expect.

First of, welcome to the forum!

What are your specs and what video drivers are you running? Do you have the rockstar store version or steam?

Hello, and thanks for the welcome!
Apologies for the lack of information on the system and for a late reply.

Here is what neofetch provided.

I am not entirely sure about what driver I am using, so maybe help me in that? :disappointed:

And, this is the Steam version of the game.
