Two bits of Wine-related news today with both DXVK for Vulkan-based D3D11 and D3D10 and d9vk for Vulkan-based D3D9 coming along.
First up, DXVK has a 1.0.2 bug fix release. It's not a big one but obviously any such bug fix release is going to be extremely useful to certain Linux gamers when it comes to their favourite games. Here's what's includes:
Additionally d9vk, which is actually based on DXVK has been progressing quite nicely. There's a post on our forum now dedicated to it, with multiple titles being shown off as running in some form. d9vk doesn't have any formal release just yet but it's a very interesting project to follow. Also nice to see the creator of DXVK help out with it a little too!
If d9vk eventually got pulled into Steam Play/Proton or merged into DXVK itself, when it's further developed, it could be another big win for Linux gamers getting more performance out of Windows games.
