LINUX GAMING --
With Feral Interactive releasing Total War: WARHAMMER for Linux this week, today they published the system requirements.

They announced this morning:
Can your Linux rig conquer Warhammer’s Old World?

It can if it has a 3.4GHz Intel Core i3-4130 or 3.5GHz AMD FX6300 processor with 4GB RAM and a 1GB Nvidia 650ti/2GB AMD R9 270 graphics card* or better.

But for total dominion we recommend a 3.4 GHz Intel Core i7-4770 processor with 8GB RAM and a 4GB Nvidia 970/4GB AMD RX 480 graphics card* or better.

*Nvidia cards require 367.28 drivers or newer. AMD cards require Mesa 13.0.1 drivers compiled using LLVM 3.9 or newer. AMD graphics cards are not supported when running SteamOS.
So basically any good NVIDIA Kepler GPU on the official binary driver will work. With the AMD graphics support on Linux, any high-end Rx 200 series GPU or newer should be good but ideally the RX 480 / R9 Fury series.

Mesa 13.0.1 and LLVM 3.9 means AMD users will need to be using very fresh open-source code for the best performance. This Linux game port is making use of only OpenGL and not Vulkan/
