    Phoronix: Tomb Raider Linux Requirements Released, Looks Like It Will Work With Mesa

    With prepping for the imminent release of Tomb Raider for Linux, Feral Interactive today published the Linux system requirements for this popular game...

    Mother of Mercy!
    Is this possibly the first time that a large title is announced with requirements that mention the freedom driver stack?! This really lifts my mood. And probably it will also lift some money (as soon as I have some) from my purse towards the feral folks.
    Stop TCPA, stupid software patents and corrupt politicians!

      Good also they mention i3 as minimal CPU as some people at arstechnica tested Alien Isolation with a antique dualcore:

      Was a good laugh though.
      I haven't finished playing on Windows, around 65% or so. Curious about comparing details on both systems with high settings.

        Why you have not tested with with gallium-nine? For me nine show about ~90% of windows performance, I do not think that feral can do better.

          Why "wine-staging 1.9.5 and older"?

            most probably because Mesa is just catching up with requirements and i would guess you'll see the Mesa support being announced for their older games as well. lot of games and engines focused on 4.3 when doing 4+ path which kind of makes sense when you look at extensions.

            it just doesn't make sense to lower requirements when you know that the reason why you would do that will soon disappear. Mesa was bound to reach barrier. or would you prefer everyone would get worser ports just so Mesa would be supported few months earlier?

              unknown future is really unknown when you look at previous attempt to get it in mainline Wine

              CSMT only gives performance boost in certain cases and it might as well vary from -20%-200% or more. games that employ threads in same manner like RE5 will perform worse unless you disable internal threading in either Wine or game. if you run both, same job just gets duplicated which can often result in game not working at all, not just worse performance. performance gain will also vary on how many cores your cpu has

                So it needs HD 5770 2GB minimum.
                That's an DirectX 11, OpenGL 3.2 card so the need for mesa 11.2 sounds a bit strange to me if it supports OpenGL 3.2 but i guess there were some mesa bugs.
                I also find the 2GB memory on AMD GPU very high.
                The minimum on windows is DirectX 9 graphics card with 512Mb Video RAM: AMD Radeon HD 2600 XT, nVidia 8600 with an 2.0 GHz CPU.
                Why is the minimum requirements always so much higher on the port?
                The Linux minimum is pretty close to windows recommended apart from the need for 2GB on the AMD GPU on linux and i can understand that they probably ported the Dx11.
                I was hoping that the game would work on my laptop but it only has 1GB memory it's an ported 2013 game after all.
                But it might still work in wine.

                    (Unconfirmed)

                    The higher memory requirement may be related to texture compression. On Gentoo, media-libs/libtxc_dxtn needs to be installed for GL_EXT_texture_compression_s3tc when using Mesa OpenGL drivers.

                    http://www.feralinteractive.com/en/news/611/ isn't mentioning Mesa in relation to Nvidia GPUs, so open-source OpenGL likely isn't supported on Nvidia GPUs.

                    With proprietary fglrx or amdgpu-pro drivers the memory requirement might be 1GB instead of 2GB. http://www.feralinteractive.com/en/news/611/ isn't mentioning proprietary AMD drivers, so these drivers might have a problem running the game.
