qptain NemoI just realized you recorded three hours of footage for this.

You insane, insane man. Respect.

Thanks

Normally i try record around 1hr or first game chapter, personally consider as minimum 1hr for give a idea about performance in large times

However some games distract so much case torchlight and exceed limit

And more now with change virtual desktop resolution to 1024x768 (normally play in this resolution) but now is possible after test how distribute sensors aka gkrell, nvidia x server settings, wine console and nvidia power limit

De1m0sThere's not only light.
DarkSouls3 does not start anymore, with this version; so does Rise of the Tomb Raider. No way.
No difference with RE7 or WalkingDead3. Nothing happens here.

Do not missunderstand me; i'm happy with every new wine-version. Unfortunately, not everything goes better with higher versions.

Lastest titles case DX10/11 dont be tested in vanilla wine because lack of many staging patchs and this patchs allow run many games

Vanilla wine is usefull for older titles case DX9 and older games

Staging 2.21 will be appear is someplace of this week

wojtek88How does the NieR: Automata perform like? In Wine DB I can see it's silver.

Does anyone managed to play the game?

As super maintainer of NieR Automata in last time test works but FAR mod dont work (CSMT are required for prevent flickering)


However i dont recommend wine vanilla for test DX10/DX11 games because lack of many staging patches (many staging patches allow work many games)

But next staging aka staging 2.21 wiil be interesting because add this vanilla DX11 patches more staging

@mrdeathjr your work always amazes me.
Just out of curiosity - do you update Wine HQ DB from time to time? From your video it looks like NieR: Automata works very well.

Are you going to post your results as silver / gold / platinum for Wine 2.21?

Thank you, meanwhile can be possible more tests will be added

Yeah some time update results but for now still waiting more DX11 patches, more patches related sound (alsa in tales of berseria, fallout 4 and others) and more related in input side (annoying bug in fallout 4)

But i think next wine (wine 2.21 have many chances to be last wine of 2.x series) is begining of RC phase (freezing code) according alexandre julliard wine conf action items

However for older titles wine 3.0 is big thing compared to wine 2.0

Intel announce a new CPU with AMD graphics and HBM2 memory
6 November 2017 at 7:40 pm UTC

Leopard
LinasSo AMD is going to compete with itself? Or drop APU's? I don't get it.

No , it is much more selling extra gpu's for Amd and for Intel not bothering to product Iris Pro like gpu's and still existing at laptops with much more embedded graphics power.

This will only hurt Nvidia. No longer Mx150 , 940MX like gpu sellings. Because basically there won't be a need for them anymore.

Yeah in teory this product replace iris pro however final price define all

If this product have similar performance than notebook with gtx 1060 but have lower price will be successfull
