    Yeah Will be very interesting to see how the port runs with Vulkan. F1 2017 runs perfectly smooth, I'm sure Feral achieved the same for Tomb Raider!

      Just in case: Don't be disappointed if the Radeon performance will be bad, the same applied to the Windows version. A lot of it is related to anisotropic filtering being extremely expensive in this game on Radeons.

      Hitman btw. was very smooth here too with OGL, unlike the DX12 version on Windows.

        Let's hope the game works with unsupported 2nd-gen GCN AMD GPUs such as R9 290/390.

            Uh? I played this on Windows back when it was released and I had a R9 290X when I started out but upgraded to an R9 Fury before I finished the game, and performance was fine, especially with the Fury. I ran DX12 which performed slightly better than DX11 for me. Frame-rate easily averaged in the eighties with settings almost maxed out.

            Now I have two Fury's and I recently went back to benchmark Crossfire but that didn't help much. Actually, it introduced micro-stuttering problems which caused the subjective experience to be worse than single GPU even though average FPS was i bit higher.

                Maybe go for Vulkan only may reduce their sales (hopefully only slightly), but I like the way they are going. The faster developers move to Vulkan, the better driver development will be and people can relegate OpenGL to simple/legacy apps only.

                  It is also in the windows store. Microsoft is making sure it get's its directx12 . As a side note one of the Feral developers told me that Metal api does in fact have Multi-gpu support.

                    Would love to know if Feral tested it against GCN cards!?!? I've got a R9-290x
