      Soon Linux will finally overtake Apple's macOS!

      But frankly, this is expected, since objective benchmarks such as GravityMark show what a joke even Apple's very expensive M1 Max is, even when making use of its tailor-made Metal API & running natively on ARM:

      Mac Studio (M1 Max, 2022)
      Score: 15,114

      AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT (with RADV on Linux)
      Score: 16,467

      NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 (Mobile)
      Score: 17,963

      Meanwhile Apple fanatics come up with headlines such as this one:

      "Apple's M1 Max GPU is as powerful as an Nvidia RTX 2080 desktop GPU and the Sony PS5 gaming console"

          I really wish Valve would hurry up and publish an official 3.0 ISO.

            Wow, 90FPS vs 107FPS. That's such a massive difference... Remind me what the TDP of that M1 Max chip is, vs those two graphics cards again?

              But come on, quality over crunch right? Releasing the SteamOS 3.0 iso means it "has" to work on every machine. But yes, it's either or situation in this case.

                Since rocket lame, Intel processors are great in converting water into steam

                    Just call it "SteamOS 2.9 Enthusiasts' beta edition (codename: zany zebra)". The weathered Linux users will know what to expect, and the newbies coming from Windows will be scared enough to wait a stabler release.
