    Everyone knows that you buy Nvidia if you plan on gaming on Linux.

    You're right, they have actually said it's a game issue. Sorry, reading fail because of working before Christmas

    They didn't say the issue is on their side, they said the fix will be on their side.

    It's good to hear a game studio actually acknowledging that the issue are on their side. I wonder what they might try to make the pipeline swallow. :P

    But it's important to know that, whatever the case, it will work on AMD hardware soon.

    Taken from the GRID Autosport forum on the Steam site:
    During the development and testing of GRID Autosport we encountered issues with AMD & Intel graphics drivers that we could not work around.
    That does indeed sound like 'their drivers are crap'. Later on, however, they elaborate about which feature is missing and that said feature is available in the latest version of Mesa (which isn't included in Ubuntu yet). So no, it's not as if they go 'meh, AMD drivers are crap, why should we bother'. They are looking into supporting AMD, with the FOSS driver (kudo's), but they aren't there yet.

    Apparently it needs 4.2, see @Sharaka posts: http://steamcommunity.com/app/373420...48854986107730

    I do find it funny that even old as hell (yes, a card from 2009 (5000 series) is old as hell) supports OpenGL 4.4 (according to Wikipedia) and yet the Mac isn't getting Elite: Dangerous Horizons because they stopped updating OpenGL at 4.1 (it requires 4.3). Though I also find it annoying that they ported the core game to Mac, but can't update it anymore, yet haven't released it for Linux, which is more than capable of running it all.
    They can update the game if they decide to support Metal API. It's a no brainer.

    OK, they clearly say that problems with AMD cards are a game issue, not a driver issue, and Michael even cites that in the article. So why the hell is the headline telling us that they warn about driver issues? Michael, stop that crap!
