All games I try to play run at drastically reduced frame rates intermittently. Rocket League for instance plays at ~60fps instead of 144. Prey runs in the 10s.
The pattern I figured out - Whenever I start my computer with my Sony DualSense 5 controller plugged into the front USB port, this is reproducible. I will try using other USB ports to see if the problem is reproducible with those as well.
It is not reproducible when I do not have the controller plugged in from startup.
Plugging in my controller after logging into my Fedora user account seems to be fine - no framerate drops. Issue is present only if it’s plugged in BEFORE (or, while) booting.

Hi Alex, I moved the topic to Ask Fedora
Get the journal logs with/without the issue to compare. i.e. do 1 boot with the controller plugged in and confirm the issue is present, then do another boot without the controller plugged in.
To view the journal for the current boot:
To view the journal for the previous boot:
journalctl -b -1
You can paste the logs here or upload to paste.centos.org. To upload directly from command line, pipe any output to
journalctl -b | fpaste
For more info on using journalctl, see Viewing logs in Fedora :: Fedora Docs
Hi @jn64! Thanks for the prompt response. Was able to reliably reproduce the problem again just now, and collected the journalctl entries:
Plugged in: Journalctl - Booting With Controller Plugged In - Pastebin Service
NOT Plugged in: Journalctl - Booting WITHOUT Controller Plugged In - Pastebin Service
Let me know if you need a re-upload because of the 24-hour time limit
Unfortunately, I don’t see anything interesting in the logs that could point towards the problem.
There are no errors from amdgpu drivers, Steam, controller, etc. Both logs are almost identical.
Only difference related to the controller is the device number, due to the controller being connected later in the good log.
