    linux-tkg custom kernels

    I have been using Mint with 5.18.8-tkg-bmq custom kernel and Mesa devel (compiled from Git not the Oibaf PPA). Not for everyone, but Xanmod or Mainline provide options to explore if you don't want to go down the compilation route. As with everything, make sure you use TimeShift to establish know working setups in case something goes wrong. That is the flexibility of Mint, you can keep the LTS kernels to fall back on while exploring adding more recent GCC/G++ versions, kernels, Mesa etc to see if performance improves or supports newer hardware.
