    NZXT Source 340 Midi-Tower Case
    Intel Core i7 4790K @ 4.00GHz
    ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. Z97-PRO GAMER (SOCKET 1150)
    Corsair Vengeance Low Profile 8GB Dual-Channel DDR3
    4GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 OC STRIX (ASUS)
    120GB Samsung SSD 840 EVO
    500GB Seagate Momentus XT x2
    500GB Western Digital Blue x 2

    OS: Linux Mint 17.2 "Rafaela" 64bit, Cinnamon.
    Kernel: 4.1.3-040103-generic
    NVIDIA Drivers: version 355.06-0ubuntu0~xedgers14.04.1

    With out of the box settings (Very High) with VSync on I get 60FPS.
    With VSync off and depending where I am on the map I get between 57 - 117 FPS.
    For this quick test I used Steams built-in FPS counter in settings.

    I swear this game runs smoother than it does on my Windows 7 Pro.

      Is it a open Beta or only for who own the game ?

        You need to own the game.

          I'm for sure not spending $60 on a game that may not have a Linux version in the end.

              I would go get it if I got a refund for not getting a product I paid for if they decide to not support it.

                Well if you buy it, the chance the Linux version stays improves. The classic chicken and egg problem.

                  I bought this game today and played ~20 minutes, so I have some results from this game.

                  Platform:
                  AMD A10-7850K
                  8GB 2166 MHz RAM
                  SSD Crucial MX100
                  Gnome Ubuntu 15.04 x64
                  Catalyst 15.7 (with --eon_disable_catalyst_workarounds)

                  Settings:
                  1920x1080
                  Vsync OFF
                  Standard settings + disabled shadows + particles on low

                  I had 15-20 FPS while played first single player mission related to infantry presentation. This is a good performance IMHO when we check ARMA3 requirements for Windows, however I'll try to run benchmark on Windows too.

                    This games needs a CPU with strong single thread performance, number of cores doesn't have that much influence beyond 3~4.
