Metro Exodus is now live on Steam and Deep Silver say it's coming to Linux

Good news I agree however, I'll not hold my breath tbh. We've been suckered too many times now unfortunately.

The good thing is that DS has been good to our platform so the statement carries merit

Apologies that I've come across as a little pessimistic.

So basically because of your shall we say heavy hand and not looking at what you are doing that's a failing of AMD's/PGA

I've used PGA since the original P100(Socket 7 sPGA) days and I have never ever done that!

oh the good old days ! did you also had a K6-2?? that sure was a superior cpu, AMD superiority has always been there! I ran vista on that.
AMD has always been very linux friendly basically the first full OS that ran in full 64bits mode, when their first 64bits cpus came out was Linux. IT's simply not true that Intel linux support is better. otoh what is actually true is that ATI's support before it was AMD was crap.

I've had both a K6 233 and a k6-2 500

Surprising large amount of people think its AMD's fault in the ATI era.

pete910Keeps getting refused, Whats the link to do a ticket to valve ?
Account details -> Purchase history -> rocket league -> I have a question about this purchase -> write to valve


Did that, asking for a refund on the game and all Rocket League DLC I had.

Unfortunately, they took 3 days to get back to me, and refunded the game only, not the 7 or 8 purchases of DLC I had for Rocket League (which was way more $ than the initial game purchase price).

Also, I had mentioned in my initial support ticket that refunding to my steam wallet was preferred, so I could pay it forward to developers who supported Linux and stood by their commitments.

The responder noted in their reply that they could not refund to my initial form of payment, due to the purchase age, and could only refund to my wallet...No shit, really? Isn't that what I asked for, Valve?

I don't think he/she even really read my ticket to begin with.

Am still waiting on a response, Did the ticket Thursday so fingers crossed!

Comandante ÑoñardoNo matter how many vulnerabilities they discover on Intel processors, I will keep using them because the LGA system is more robust..

... than the PGA ....

If, someday, AMD decide to implement the LGA system in the mid class processors, I will try them....
Sadly, actually AMD use the LGA system only in the Threadripper processor.

Can you expand on that somewhat?

I actually prefer PGA, I know bent pins can be a pain at times but if you're rough with them it's to be expected.

Better a few bent pins than this

Ok,That's to the extreme but you get my point.

True but a lot did 3 years ago to yesterday

AMD has strong revenue growth again, new next-gen RDNA GPUs coming this year

It still looks like it's not a huge achievement. The GTX 1080 is 4 years old in a few month while the 5700 XT was released Q3 2019 which is not a year ago. And has the same performance as the GTX 1080 (-1% with out BIOS and ACO update) which is pretty bad for a 2019 GPU vs a 2016 GPU.

...

The 5700 XT's launch price was nearly half that of the 1080. 25% smaller die size while having 3 million more transistors, due to newer process size. While in Linux, the two are in most cases, performing the same (room for AMD drivers to improve) in Windows, the 5700 XT is on average, 20% faster.

Hence why GamersNexus rated it best GPU of 2019.

I imagine, in 6-12 months, drivers for Navi will improve, and the 5700 (along with all other Navi/RDNA 1.0 cards) will perform at least 10% and maybe even up to 20% faster than it does now. And that from open source drivers, that are in the kernel, available right from fresh install of Linux, in any distribution, not needing to mess with the installation of binary drivers.

Both of you seem to have forgot the VII which is faster than both released feb last year
