    Thanks for the suggestion. I gave it a try, but he power limit slider is still locked out though. I just ended up redoing the shunt mod so that it has a lower limit on the power. Ubuntu just doesn't give me much control over the power in software for my RTX 2070 Super Max-Q gpu.

    Well, I just did a clean install of the latest POP_OS! in Legacy BIOS mode and discovered that 5.1 audio works great on the Z490 Dark K|NGP|N mobo.

    FWIW... DOOM runs on Linux with official support. DOOM Eternal is not "official" but using Photon Experimental it seems to work just as well as the prequel.
    I just tested it and it seems perfect.

    I do not care for Middle Earth: Shadow or Mordor or Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. I own them primarily because they have a built-in benchmark. Both of those run fine as well.

    I finally found time to carve out half of my 1TB Windows 7 SSD to make some room for Linux on the CPU binning bench. Now every computer I own is running Linux, including the TongFang turdbook. Lutris works well for running Cinebench (spoofing Windows 7).

    The all-core turbo is 5.0GHz but the BIOS set 5.2GHz on the two favored cores, so Cinebench is seeing that. These are running at 5.0GHz, not 5.2 as Cinebench indicates.
