Dawn of War III [Steam] arrives on Linux tomorrow and we now know exactly what kind of system is needed to run it, come check it out.

Minimum
3.4GHz Intel i3-4130
Ubuntu 16.04
8GB RAM
Nvidia 650Ti with 1GB of VRAM.

Recommended
3.4GHz Intel i7-4770
Ubuntu 16.10
8GB RAM
Nvidia 980Ti with 4GB of VRAM.

AMD and Intel graphics cards are not supported on OpenGL. However, Vulkan is supported on AMD with Mesa 17.1 or 17.2-devel for Intel. Note: Vulkan is currently still experimental in Dawn of War III.

It's likely AMD will gain support for OpenGL in Dawn of War III with Mesa 17.2, going by all the work going into Mesa right now.

Also, Feral are livestreaming Dawn of War III tonight, event is on our livestreams event page. I will be doing a release-day livestream as well tomorrow, which is also listed on that page (as long as there's no sudden issues), you're all welcome to join in if you can download it in time.

How I will be enjoying the multiplayer experience with my friends who run Windows:

Curios how this plays.
Steam reviews are a mixed bag and don't always seem reliable.

In DOW 2 because of the deterministic engine both OS-es calculate things differently so you cannot play with people on Windows.
In DOW 3 there is same issue , but it may be fixed. Maybe.

That's what the image of the two lovers , separated by a wall or something , represents .

Hopefully this will run well with only 6GB. I don't feel like paying $100 to upgrade my ram.

Depending on your configuration, you might be able add 4 GB for ~30 bucks or 2 GB for ~15.

The system requirements are definitely higher than Windows... I am going to assume those are the OpenGL requirements. With Vulkan, I'd still expect the requirements to be higher than Windows, but somewhat less higher as I don't expect this game to be super heavily optimized for Vulkan.

I've been shopping around and the cheapest I could find for my 6 year old motherboard is $100 for 8GB.

Almost makes me want to put together a new $300 computer, with much better specs, at those prices.
