The unstable performance of RX580 Gaming Box on my MacBook Pro

For example, Dota 2 and Fortnight never reach 60FPS no matter how I change the graphic settings. But The Raise of Tomb Raider works pretty well. I think there must be some problem with my settings since I have seen even RX460 can play Dota 2 at 60FPS. I also tried Overwatch at bootcamp, the FPS is very unstable, sometimes can be 200+ but sometimes just like playing powerpoint.

Is this in macOS? A lot of eSports type games are optimized much more for windows than mac whereas good, newer ports of games like Rise of the Tomb Raider run much better. Also if you're playing on the internal display that can decrease performance a lot.

Seconded. Huge differences in some cases.

I play Dota 2 in macOS with an external monitor. I just feel strange because my friend's macbook pro 2015 (15-inch, R9 M370X) performs much better than me (both with lowest graphic settings). I also tried Overwatch in bootcamp (also external display), the FPS keeps changing (20-200) and never stabilize.
