Does anyone remember the AI in the F.E.A.R. game? Was one of the best ever: this gave me the same vibes.

AMD shows off new hardware at CES 2022

Quoting: 14
Quoting: ziabiceThe "new" Radeon RX 6500 XT goes a little better than a Radeon RX 570 (a card from 5 years ago!) for $199, which who know how translate in street price.

I paid my RX 580 with 4GB around €250 (including VAT) in 2018, and it still can handle gaming today at 1080p with medium-high details on most of games...
Doesn't the model naming convention mean you should compare an RX 6500 with an RX 550? And an RX 6700 with an RX 570?

In the presentation AMD compared the RX 6500 with a RX 570.

Disappointing, to say the least.

That Microsoft Pluton is also very problematic: no open source solutions alternatives? Oh, come on!

A (hopefully) cheaper alternative to this and the GMMK PRO is the fresh Keychron Q1 which has QMK firmware too.

Seems interesting. Someone knows games like Hob, which seems similar to this too?

For a little more than 5€ seems a good bargain, bought!

Metro Exodus from 4A and Deep Silver has officially released for Linux

Because I have a 1440p display, but a not so beefy RX 580 4G GPU, I set the resolution to 720p and high details (so it's scaled directly by my monitor and is not blurred as a 1080p rescaled). The game run butter smooth for less than an hour, then it collapsed eating all my RAM (16GB + 4GB swap) and I had to reset the PC. I'm using Mesa 21.0.1.

Since then I haven't started the game again.

Buying the AMD Radeon RX 580 with only 4GB of RAM was one of the worst decisions of my life! To my defense, the 8GB version was nowhere to be found at the time... that said, is a great GPU!

I really liked this game, played it fine with Proton. I'm very curious on how well it will run on my PC
