    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.

    Whatever comes with latest from normal repoes. I keep up to date. The thing is I googled for "black screen after start" and it seems this time it's a cross-platform bug. Lots of windows people get it too, seems to be related to non-HDMI monitors and higher refresh rate monitors. I use standard 60hz but non HDMI.

    Given this it's possible it's simply a game bug. Well they lost my money either way, I'm not going to fiddle with monitor setup for one game.

    Version is Mesa: 18.2.4 (vulkan-radeon package specifically) just FYI

    The version visible in the webinterface is just whatever commit was latest the last time I uploaded a new version to the AUR.

    TL;DR : binary builds (oibaf ppa) are static, source builds from trunk (aur mesa-git) are dynamic.
    He's a troll, don't feed it! You can tell he has no clue how arch works.

    There is certainly value in seeing how the RADV vs. NVIDIA performance is among GPUs... It's not that these results are just random or something like that, users can compare their own game performance against the graphics cards tested in that same configuration using PTS if they so desire to see relative performance in that comparison, etc. There is value, just that the sub-title of the graphs doesn't reflect what gamers would expect, but as noted, there will be new results coming out (later today) and at that time it will be redirecting to that new article. But moving these comments anyhow to that article thread rather than just trolling other threads.
    I still disagree about such an important update being at the bottom, still feels buried.

    If the current article is simply going to turn into a link to the new one, then that's acceptable

    There's no value in something claiming it's testing one thing when it's actually another because the details of it are just completely false. How can you honestly say there's value in completely incorrect results? Come on, you're better than this.

    You're practically the authority on Linux benchmarking, I expect better. It's silly things like this, that stop me supporting each time I think about doing so.

    The original results are still available due to their value in comparison (and that the same configuration was used across all of the GPUs tested, so in that regard it is correct) of performance between GPUs while the second round of benchmarks will be published shortly.

    I'm sure you've read the comments on how they're all wrong...

    After you install it and make your settings, Arch is the easiest distro ever. And if you are such a noob use a graphical installer.
