    Phoronix: Feral Releases F1 2017 For Linux, More Details On The Vulkan Driver Requirements

    Feral Interactive has just made F1 2017 publicly available via Steam on Linux and via the Feral Store for those wanting to try out this racing game that was released for Windows earlier this year...

    Maybe it's not to late to ask, but please test using a 660 or something. If the 6 series requirement is really only because of Vulkan support, that card should work fine, considering the title works on a 460 on Windows. If it doesn't, we have another translation layer to "congratulate".
    Considering the recommended requirement haven't changed, I think we may be in for a pleasant surprise (fingers crossed).

      I don't have a 660 unfortunately. I plan to go back to at least 680, maybe 650 but haven't decided yet depending upon time...

        If I'm not wrong the 650 should have the same performance as a 460. I think it's worth a try

        Edit: Actually it's the Gtx 650 ti that performs like the Gtx 460

          650, 660Ti anything you can think of. Iirc a 760 isn't that much faster than a 660Ti, so even that will do (sorry, I don't remember which cards you have). Tyvm.

          Edit: If you run out of time, maybe save this for a future article looking at the translation layer more closely?

            Expect 10 - 50% loss in performance compared to Windows depending on system configuration.

              I know RADEON-PRO isn't supported by Feral but it still would be nice to see what the performance of it is vs Radv

                Of course the main Steam store page is flooded with shovelware, as always, and this isn't even mentioned anywhere. Not even among new releases. Valve really has to get its shit together.

                  Because in the eyes of Valve and probably the majority of their costumers, this isn't a new release. The "real" release was 25 august.

                    For anyone wondering about enabling AMDGPU on SI/CIK, there's some information available at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php...CIK.29_support

                    You can check your kernel has support enabled by running `zgrep CONFIG_DRM_AMDGPU_ /proc/config.gz` and the kernel parameters can be added to /etc/default/grub in the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="..." line.

                    I haven't had to blacklist the radeon module since kernel 4.13 but did have an issue when I upgraded without the above parameters set so hopefully others will avoid that problem.
