GameMode an Open Source performance tool releases for Linux via Feral Interactive. Since this helps Linux users to get the best performance out of their games.
GameMode tells your processor to run in Performance Mode. So whenever you fire up a game. But will automatically remove these optimizations when you finish playing. Return to the desktop to tackle normal computing tasks. Also, the first Feral release to integrate the tool is Rise of the Tomb Raider. The incredible action-adventure coming to Linux this month.

The open-source tool GameMode will help Linux players get the best performance out of their games. Which is going to be interesting testing out this tool for other games. Which will be interesting to which processors have the best performance. My best guess, Intel obviously.
GameMode tells your processor to run in Performance Mode whenever you fire up a game, and it will automatically remove these optimizations when you finish playing and return to the desktop to tackle normal computing tasks.
“GameMode design is primarily as a stop-gap solution. These are problems with the Intel and AMD CPU powersave or ondemand governors. But it’s intent is to go beyond just CPU governor states. As there are a wealth of automation tasks one might want to apply.
In other words, look for this to be fleshed out. More performance-boosting functionality to be added in the future, with any luck.”
So you can install GameMode by grabbing it from GitHub. Then it’ll work with any title which has support built-in. Feral’s first game to have this functionality is coming soon. So expect the release on Linux later this month.
