LINUX GAMING --
Some of the exciting news this week was Unity releasing their Vulkan renderer in preview form and this initial debut did contain Linux support. There are now some unofficial Unity demos built for Linux with the Vulkan renderer enabled.

Levi Bard is hosting some sample Linux player builds with the Vulkan preview support enabled. There are two demos currently offered: Corridor Lighting Example and Viking Village. There are both x86 and x86_64 builds and should work with newer Vulkan Linux drivers.

There were also comments and a video that the Unity Vulkan renderer is running with the RADV Radeon Vulkan driver but there are some issues still:


See this Google Plus post for downloading the Unity Vulkan demos (unfortunately they don't appear to have any integrated automatic benchmark capability).
