Looks like everyone is going to be happy with this one. Feral Interactive have announced the system requirements for HITMAN [Steam] ahead of the release next week. AMD & NVIDIA are supported.

Intel Core i5-2500K/AMD FX-8350
Ubuntu 16.04 or Steam OS 2.0
8GB RAM and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 680/AMD R9 270X graphics card or better.*

Intel Core i7 3770
Ubuntu 16.10 or Steam OS 2.0
Nvidia GeForce GTX 970/AMD R9 290 graphics card or better.*

*NVIDIA graphics cards require driver version 375.28. AMD graphics cards require MESA 13.0.3 or better. Intel graphics cards will not be supported on release.

HITMAN will be released for Linux on February 16th, so not long to go. Are you as excited as I am?

I am hoping to do a livestream on the day of release, as usual. Keep an eye on our Twitch page:

Welp, my good ol' GTX760 apparently won't cut the mustard then.

Sad. Low energy.

My cpu is minimum.. ohh damn it

FX-8350 minimum? Oh dear.

Crossing my fingers that Ryzen lives up to the hype. It's really sad to see that AMD CPUs are no longer "good enough" for gaming.

This game will be interesting on my system.

I run latest Mesa git, have an AMD 380X GPU. 16GB RAM. So no probs there.

But my CPU is Intel Pentium G4560 (Kaby Lake), so I guess the equivelent-ish of a Core i3.

Cool, I should be pretty set, i5-4670k & gtx1070; look forward to cranking this up

That said, Im keeping an eye on Ryzen if it proves to be competative and cost effective I may be tempted for an upgrade!

I really love that Feral is supporting AMD with Mesa 13.0.3+!

Good lord, the minimum required is as high as the recommended for Windows.

I'm in the same boat as you. Th 8350 was pretty sweet a few years ago but i'm really hoping Ryzen is all that it's promised to be, and soon.

yeah, it was quite decent, sadly under linux its a bit worse because opengl isnt really threaded enough and singlecore perf sucks on those CPUs.. under windows this CPU can still deliver somewhat with DX11.
Vulkan will change things a bit.. few vulkan titles that are available atm show that this CPU can still deliver.

patiently waiting for ryzen also
