    Phoronix: FEX 2211 Emulator Gets God of War & Other Modern AAA Games Running On Linux AArch64

    Making good progress this year has been the open-source FEX-Emu emulator for running x86/x86_64 Linux binaries on 64-bit Arm (AArch64). This isn't only for running Linux x86_64 applications on Arm but with Steam and Steam Play (Proton) can mean running Windows games on Linux 64-bit Arm. With FEX 2211 out today more progress has been made on the Proton front for getting more modern games running...

      Cool, but how's the performance?

            I'm also curious how the performance is, and, what specifically would be the bottleneck. Seems to me either the CPU or GPU could hold up such games.

              There are no (commercially available) chips that would do that right now, even if the software was ready.

                Pretty damn impressive!
                Once Asahi Linux gets more mature in terms of graphics drivers, you could run x86_64 steam on it

                  Actually, you can't. There's some other issues when it comes to page sizes that FEX has already said they won't support. https://github.com/FEX-Emu/FEX/issues/1221

                    Probably amount of work versus reward isn't really worth it. Once they go down this path people are going to expect them to support Steam forever.
