    Any idea how the OSVR stuff is doing in steam?

    Finally, though kind of annoying that Vulkan is required (I wouldn't care if RADV supported GCN GPUs that aren't yet supported by amdgpu-pro...)

    As far as I'm concerned, their Windows version is still beta-quality, so I'm not all that concerned about the stability in Linux.

    So Vulkan is a requirement for SteamVR eh? Awesome.. Can't wait to see the performance improvements on Radv and more Vulkan titles this year.

    A sponsor huh? Be sure to note who the sponsor is, it's not a good idea to hide them. People need to know if it's a company (a little thing called ethics).

    Well, clearly Croteam's announcement then Valve's a few days later are related. It is GDC I'm wondering about.

    Khronos will be there. Maybe the required Vulkan extensions will get announced.

    My Dan A4 SFX is on the way from Germany, I can't wait to cram a Ryzen R7 1700 and a Vega in it and Vive it up on Free gpu drivers!
