    Alien Isolation probably doesn't run yet on the Mesa/Gallium3D drivers due to these open-source drivers still needing to implement more OpenGL 4.x extensions
    Which version of OpenGL and which extensions exactly?

      +1. It would be interesting to know.

        Once again it is a title of AMD's Gaming Evolved program that has problems with AMD cards on Linux. Aren't they embarrassed enough, yet?

          probably = he is guessing and doesn't know

          The game isn't out yet so he can't test either and the Windows version seams to run on DirectX 11.

              This shit must stop. Really Feral. Unacceptable. Learn to dev on non-nvidia cards.

                  Pathetic situation. The opposite of what the 'PC ecosystem' is supposed to be about.

                  Not blaming anybody because I don't know whether to blame AMD or the developers or both.

                    True story bro.
                    Unigine works ok with catalyst, I really don't understand what/where is the problem. Are they using Nvidia only extensions?
