FEX 2211 Emulator Gets God of War & Other Modern AAA Games Running On Linux AArch64
FEX 2211 brings fixes for getting Proton Experimental now running on Arm hardware. Proton 7.0 and older had been working with FEX but now it's possible getting the newer Proton Experimental to work for in turn enjoying more Windows x86/x86_64 games running on 64-bit Arm hardware. The FEX developers noted they are now able to run "triple-A games on AArch64" and used the recent God of War release from January as an example:
The FEX emulator developers have been enjoying the God of War and other AAA games on Proton Experimental while running from Snapdragon 888 powered Lenovo laptops.
In addition to their Proton Experimental work, they also added a segment register index optimization as a performance improvement for some 32-bit software, more preparations for supporting AVX emulation in a future release, supporting more instructions, support for disabling thunks in application configurations, and a variety of other additions.
