      No mention about Navi support, yet?

        It crashes nicely at least every game with DXVK I've started so far. Do they even test it at all before calling it a "release"?

          I checked ELEX, The Witcher 3, Strange Brigade and all those three games works fine.

            It's definitely tested prior to release but I don't know if the testing includes DXVK yet.

              Not really interesting for desktop linux, because no window system (neither X nor wayland) supports it and the relevant vulkan extensions are not exposed.
              It would be more directly beneficial if they implemented freesync or even proper vsync handling (see https://github.com/GPUOpen-Drivers/AMDVLK/issues/16) which radv already supports.

                Any indication when FreeSync support will be added? It's sorely missed and even RADV supports it.

                  They mention a DXVK specific bugfix so it sounds like they test that also!

                    Thanks. It was an issue in a custom wine build that somehow only affected amdvlk, but not radv.
                    Though, the situation regarding both vsync and freesync is very unsatisfying:
                    https://github.com/GPUOpen-Drivers/AMDVLK/issues/16
                    amdvlk would be much more recommendable without these issues.
