    Eventually DXVK will beat AMD on D3D11 but not Nvidia. AMD's D3D11 feels abandoned and the ultra fast path with very advanced multi threading seams impossible there. Just invest on Linux with a Radeon, this is the best PC choice.

      That would be great! I also hope you'll find time to capture and post unresized screenshots (in PNG) from this game running under Proton and Windows to settle any possible speculations in regard to rendering paths/quality.

        I think it's pure myth non-sense, but I can run a test Linux vs. Windows myself (with Hitman 1 levels in Hitman 2).

          I guess lots of people will be interested. Please do.

            Have you 'tested' it on Windows, finally?

              Haven't had a Windows install around able to test it on, but will do a Windows install on the 9900K box when doing the Windows tests, was waiting closer to Windows 10 May update for a new install on desktop hardware.

                (there are more posts than this one)

                It's not a case of DXVK cutting corners, it renders everything correctly, it's just that AMD's DX11 driver is typical AMD cpu-boundware and ends up getting beating by DXVK + radv in some games, even with the translation layer overhead. This doesn't happen on nvidia because their dx11 driver is very efficient.
                It does happen on NVIDIA though, just maybe not with Hitman 2. However, I haven't checked Hitman 2, nor do I have a dedicated Windows install anymore (all my favorite games run on Linux.) so I can't create a comparison for you. Be skeptical if you want. A very large company is leading up efforts to uproot people and get them to move to Linux. If more companies would take notice, everyone would win.

                  Michael Interested to know what your problems with VII come from. I swapped out my Vega 64 for a VII and it just worked out of the box on ArchLinux.

                      Oops, can't edit. Michael is Wayland enabled on your system? You mention something about it being disabled on Ubuntu, but in my experience that has not been the case. You need to specify wayland=false in /etc/gdm3/custom.conf. It's commented out. If you disable Wayland on NVIDIA systems at least, DXVK and proton are severely hampered and framerates drop.
