Here’s some issues I found with your log that might help.

  • Due to AMD’s poorly optimized OpenGL driver, you may experience slowdowns.
  • Enabling Accurate Multiplication is recomended in certain games. If you are experiencing graphical glitches, try enabling this option.

How to enable accurate multiplication

Your APU is too weak, you will need to buy a new computer with like Ryzen 3 3100 paired with an Nvidia graphics card for more performance.
