A recent benchmark video is currently doing the rounds showing off Far Cry New Dawn from Ubisoft, despite it not supporting Linux thanks to Wine, DXVK and Steam Play it seems to run beautifully.
The benchmark video from YouTube user FlightlessMango, has a side-by-side comparison of Far Cry New Dawn running on Steam Play Proton 4.11-3, Wine (the TKG build) + DXVK and finally Windows 10.
Looking into the details of it, the user was running it on this system:
- Cpu: i7 8700k @ 4.7Ghz
- Memory: 16GB G.Skill Trident Z 3200 Mhz
- Graphics Card: GTX 1080 Ti Strix Gaming (435.21 Linux driver)
- Motherboard: Asus Rog Strix Z370-E Gaming
- Operating System: Arch linux
- Kernel: 5.2.13-27-tkg-pds fsync
You can actually see the full benchmark details they put online here, which make it a little easier to read over. Running at about 97% of the Windows 10 average is honestly pretty incredible.
