16-Way Graphics Card Comparison With Valve's Steam Play For Windows Games On Linux

4K racing with low quality settings is also possible for the vast majority of these GPUs on Steam Play.

The Vega and GTX 1070 series still could run the F1 2018 racing benchmark well at 4K with high quality settings.

But if wanting to enjoy F1 2018 maxed out at 4K on Linux with ultra high quality settings, the GeForce GTX 1080 series or NVIDIA RTX cards will lead to the best racing experience.

Hopefully you found these initial numbers of interest if you are into either one of these games or interested in the overall performance at this point of Steam Play. If there is sufficient interest from premium supporters, I may run some Windows vs. Steam Play benchmarks shortly with these games and any other test-friendly games that may begin working soon under Steam Play. Let me know in the forums or go premium if not already. Given the rapid progress of Steam Play since the end of the summer, it will be interesting to see what more Windows games may be running well on Linux already by the upcoming Steam Winter/Christmas sale.
