Low performance in games on flatpak version

I’m not sure if I should post it here, but I don’t know where to start. Low performance issues seem to be affecting anything that is being emulated through flatpak apps (steam and bottles).

If it’s in both Steam and Bottles there may be something wrong with flatpak or your system. Have you tried running normal Steam? Also it would be good to know some details of your device for troubleshooting like OS version, kernel version, graphic card, processor, RAM etc.

Hey, how I know that there are issues with flatpak is I installed steam from my distro repo, and I gained at least 5-10 more fps in the same game emulated through proton.

Im using fedora 36, kernel version 5.19.7-200.fc36.x86_64.
Intel core i3 6006u with integrated graphics, hd520, 8gb of ram

There were some reports of Steam games having worse performance on flatpak version so I guess a little difference may be there, but it shouldn’t be too big. If I were you I’d ask somewhere where there are a lot of flatpak experts like their forum or their github.
