I have the following problem with my Framework 13: Nearly all games I tried will freeze and then crash after some time. The symptoms are always the same: The game runs perfectly fine (considering the hardware) with a stable, high framerate and everything. And then suddenly the video freezes while the sound still continues for some time. Then the game crashes, or I have to kill the process manually. No error messages (except very generic ones). Here is a short list of examples, sorted by the frequency of crashes (beginning with very rare crashes, ending with completely unplayable): Witcher 3, Rocket League, Space Engineers, Minecraft (modded), Beyond All Reason, Watch Dogs, GTA 5.
As you can see, the issue persists throughout all kinds of games: It doesn’t matter whether the game runs natively or through Proton. Every game with heavy enough graphics seems to crash eventually, the only difference is how long it takes (which varies a lot).
I couldn’t find anything helpful in game logs yet. Does anyone have similar experiences or suggestions for what I could try to narrow the problem down? I would also like to hear about your Linux Gaming experiences on the Framework Laptop: Is stable gaming possible on the Framework under Linux?
