Question How can I make Blender 2.8 run better? (gtx1080) (Xeon E5-2690)

Hi guys,

Blender is running almost twice as slow on Pop than on windows 10, and there's some missing features. Same computer.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I've noticed a couple of improvements since doing a recent update for both blender 2.8 and pop!_os, it fixed a couple of EEVEE rendering problems. But it's still not giving me much compared to windows.

Here's my specs:

I got Pop!_OS because I noticed Pablo from Blender Today uses it and I figured this would be my reason to switch from windows.
I've got Cuda switched on with My GeForce GTX 1080 set up along side my Intel Xeon E52690. (Blender 2.80.61) What can be done to make Blender run like people claim it runs on Linux?
