    Wierd that amdgpu pro isn't supported.

    I know that companies like Valve and Feral are invested and contribute to RADV...
    But still amdgpu pro is AMD's official vulkan driver. Maybe they think that's it's irrelevant since it only works on Ubuntu 16.04.

      But amdgpu-pro is for enterprise distros so they support mesa/radv because it works on every distros.. And no one use amdgpu-pro for gamming. It pretty clear for me

        I suspect my TAHITI card may work in this game forcing it to use AMDGPU instead of Radeon, anyone tested?

          Hmmm, I've spent a lot recently on games. I don't usually get full priced games at launch but GT Sport and Destiny 2 swayed me. But I may still have to get this, direct from the Feral website of course. The only other time I've done that is Mad Max, so I'm certainly sending the message to Feral that I support Vulkan, even if it is only in a very small way.

            "...more stiff than under Windows and does rely upon Vulkan rather than D3D11."

            So Windows only supports D3D11? This will make for some very interesting D3D11 vs Vulkan benchmarks, and could potentially mean this game is faster on Linux than on Windows!

              But Feral recommends the GeForce GTX 1070 or better for best performance.
              Of course they do. This is the payola (along with in-game "designed for Nvidia" plugs) for NVidia providing "free" engineers to help optimize the game. Nvidia has been doing this for years. Lend a few engineers to the game studio for free, to help tune the game, and in return, the game studio recommends Nvidia to consumers. It may not be illegal, but it's certainly anti-competitive.

                I should have some GCN 1.0 RADV tests on launch day.

                  Ya, I guess it's just a temporary oddity that AMD's official Vulkan driver resides in that...

                    The system requirements are significantly higher than Windows which means Feral couldn't write a slim translation layer even when using Vulkan
