    Well, I usually always go for 8x anisotropic no matter what because I did a test a few years ago where I tried to spot the visual difference in a couple of games and I found it impossible to see the difference going from 8x -> 16x but I could see the improvement from 4x -> 8x. I don't usually see much performance difference messing around with anisotropic filtering though, but there's really no need to go for the placebo setting.
    It depends a lot on the content. When there are large plane areas, it can be quite visible for the ground texture and usually the jump from 4x to 16x isn't very costly on Nvidia.

    In RotTR 16x doesn't look much better, but e.g. Hitman is a different case (AF should be enforced via driver with this game for the best effect).

      humbug If you look at the recommended spec we mention Vega graphics cards require Mesa 18.0 or later. We test on a wide range of AMD cards to make sure the game runs great on as many AMD cards as is physically possible. 😁

        I never finished the game on Windows. Too scripted and backpedaling. Also, lol $60. Guess they never heard of G2A.

          Although there might be legal keys there are also scammers and stuff on such "market places" - just ask yourself why these key shops have changed their business model making third parties responsible for the sold key. I had personal experiences years ago because I thought it was 100% legal. But I realized that it's not - you just don't know when you buy it. But you will notice it when a game is removed from your list.

          Honestly, people here feel fine paying the prices to support companies like Feral. I buy every big release for Linux although I know I can't play all these games in my life. But by testing and buying them I can contribute to a big thing that is potentially able to change the world. And I do not want to be the person saving those few bucks who might be responsible in a future where things don't work as well as expected.
          However, currently it seems to be working quite well for Linux which is mostly the merit of AMD who are highly responsible that we have the Vulkan API, the guy who started the DXVK project and Valve who could convince the MoltenVK devs to open source it. And also Feral who are delivering native Games.
          These outstanding people and companies are climbing mountains to enhance our perspective. So to be just, we should honor their partly unselfish efforts and support their positive visions by buying their products 100% legally in return.

          Just imagine how you like the world to be - everyone contributing to community and being rewarded in return, or everyone trying to take the most from community with the result that community gets destroyed because that does only work as long as you abuse the unselfishness of others which you force to think selfish as well.
          You might think that you don't have an impact but how do you know that you are not the one inspiring others to do the same? Rationally there must be one making the difference.

            I agree with oooverclocker - if you don't want to pay $60 then wait for a Steam or Feral store sale so at least they make something off of it. Buying it off of G2A will at best make them nothing as it would go to the Windows dev team, and at worst be basically piracy as many keys on G2A 'fell off a truck' somewhere in Russia.

              For those that do buy the game from anywhere other than Feral's own store; it is possible to still show some support by way of 'Steam stats.' If the first 2 hours of game-play are on Linux via native steam (read: not wine-steam) - then the game is considered a Linux purchase.

                I believe this is only true if you buy it from Steam. If you are buying a key or physical copy, those come from the publishers of those copies - which means the key was sold to the retailer by Square, not Feral. Maybe edddeduck_feral can confirm more officially.

                  That's awesome.
                  I got worried because of the below source not listing recommended AMD GPU

                    I just installed it from Ubuntu repos I found in synaptic. (I don't remember if I've installed any ppa earlier this year.)

                      16x anisotropic filterig roughly costs ~40% performance on the 390 while it's 20% on the 1070.
                      When the game was released with DX11 only, it also showed nasty stuttering in geothermal valley with the 390, but this seems to be fixed since Adrenalin drivers (overhead optimization?).
                      There was a driver update from AMD which improved RotTR performance with ~15%.
                      Geothermal Valley is also known to be slow on almost all hardware, people have reported dips to 30fps on 5ghz 7700k and dual 1080s https://steamcommunity.com/app/39122...1491109136961/
