play such games as Battlefield 2142 or Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, you will now be able to do so starting April 14! Next week Transgaming will be introducing Cedega 6.0. Among the features are increased performance, usability improvements, and a horde of new games support. Phoronix was fortunate enough to receive an advanced media release copy of Cedega 6.0 and today we will be just hitting the tip of the iceberg when it comes to all of the changes that make up this release.
The performance of Oblivion is very good but could use some work still. The game itself is indistinguishable from Windows and so far has only crashed on me one time. The sound is greatly improved in 6.0 as well and now allows other applications to use the sound system at the same time which is a nice change from being stuck with just Cedega sound or sound outside of Cedega. Hopefully with all of these improvements there will be new supported games in the coming months, C&C3 being the one I'd like to see.
That is one of the things still being determined. The advanced copy of Cedega 6 only arrived last night.
Is there a chance you will be testing a range of ATi and nVidia cards? I would also like to see Cedega stack up with actual Linux native applications if possible, like Doom 3 Linux vs Doom 3 on Cedega etc. I think there are already preconceptions on what the result is, but I'm still curious to see how it turns out.
Also, 3dmarks benchmark would be interesting (XP vs Cedega).
