    Phoronix: Valve Said To Be Developing Three New VR Games

    Valve developers have been working to deliver Linux VR support and even significantly improving the AMDGPU+RadeonSI/RADV Linux driver stack for VR use-cases. Their motives are becoming more clear with Valve working on at least three new games making use of virtual reality...

          So that's why Gabe is so keen to knock RadV into shape quickly since they will all rely on steamVR using Vulkan...

          Expect to see AMDGPU PRO dropped from steamOS within the next few months. Valve already mostly has the openGL featureset they need from MESA, so it's largely Vulkan work and performance remaining now... So this will represent a change where linux game devs now target the MESA drivers only, and no longer the proprietary for AMD.

          Will be interesting to watch how this plays out with MESA once AMD opensources their vulkan driver.

              Sounds like a counter to Microsofts initiative releasing these 6 exclusive DX12 games all at once

                Yeah, it'd be nice if they had a newer kernel for all that.

                uname -r = 4.1.0-0.steamos.41-amd64


                Still waiting!

                    What does 3 mean when Valve says it? According to their counting system numbers go:
                    1 2 2.1 2.2 ...
                    does this mean that they'll be launching infinitely many games in order to reach the limit as iterations go to infinity in order to finally get to 3?
