    Phoronix: Total War: Warhammer II AMD Radeon / NVIDIA GeForce Linux Gaming Benchmarks

    Yesterday Feral Interactive released their much anticipated port of Total War: Warhammer II for Linux. This latest Linux game port is yet another Vulkan-powered game. Here are some initial benchmark results of Warhammer II running natively on Ubuntu Linux with a variety of AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards.

    Is any way to run games like this Warhammer II or MadMax, Shadow of Mordor and etc. on Proton? Why I want run windows version and not native? Because most of this port just working very poorly and not have crossplatform multiplayer, so I prefer run it into WINE.
    Is this possible?

      I'm actually amazed at these results considering it's all running at 2160p.

      I think you can fetch Proton from Github, build it yourself and then install the Windows-version of Steam using Proton just like if it was Wine. There's currently no more convenient option than that if that's what you are asking for.

        Stay tuned for more Warhammer II Linux benchmarks shortly.
        Maybe do FullHD per Black Firday prices

        Newegg shows RX 570 GPUs with 4GB of RAM for $139, RX 570 cards with 8GB of RAM for $149, and RX 580 cards at $189.
        These prices are explicitly labeled as sale pricing good for the next six days, so don’t count on them sticking around forever.

          Maybe I'm blind but I don't see the RX480 in any of the charts.

            Whaaat... I get 37 FPS on medium 4k with my Fury. Granted I have an 1700X, but still....

            Michael : you don't have resolution scale set to lower or something like that... ?

              Michael, would love to see the AMD cards run with both the open source AMDGPU and the closed AMDGPU-Pro driver, in these gaming benches. You wouldn't run a performance benchmark comparing AMDGPU-Pro vs. Nouveau, would you?

              Additionally, the dominant screen resolution far and away is still 1080p, according to the Steam survey data. For newly released games like this, it would be great to see the numbers @ 1080p. Seeing how their card performs at this res would aid in the decision to buy the game. As long as I can get 60+ fps @ 1080p, I'm happy. Seeing that my GPU can only muster 39 fps @ 2160p is interesting, but it doesn't help me understand how the game will perform on my existing hardware.

                If you go to the Steam settings, you can force-enable Proton on all games, even when there's a Linux native version. I think you can do this per-game too.

                  That's not what that setting does. It simply enables Steam Play for non whitelisted titles. Native games will still run as native.

                    I just hope the sale isn't eaten in whole by the mine-
