Ray tracing with AMD RADV on Linux gets closer with the 'World's Slowest Raytracer'

Still unable to run Quake II RTX on Radeon RX 6800 with Mesa 21.2.1
Setting "RADV_PERFTEST=rt" environment doesn't help either.

OBS Studio 27.0 RC1 out with Wayland support and browser docking on Linux

Quoting: DamonLinuxPLAnyway looks like to me that recording witch VAAPI on Radeon 580 8GB in X11 is broken... at least on my hardware (both in vaapi+x264 and vaapi+hevc). Just not sure if this related to new OBS 27.0.0 RC1 release or new libva 2.11.0... or maybe somethings else. Anyone see somethings similar?
I experienced similar problem with VAAPI.

OBS Studio 26.1.2 with Mesa 21.0.1 gives a bad result: extremely lagging video when played back, but normal audio, only when I use VAAPI. But the result is good when I use software encoder (x264).

I have no problem using VAAPI on OBS before. It's with Mesa 20.3.
But Mesa 21.0 really improves gaming performance. Need to wait for a fix for this compatibility issue.

Quoting: CatKillerQuake 2 RTX has already switched to the vendor-neutral Vulkan extension, so works on AMD (and future Intel) hardware that supports it.
Do you have a proof of Quake 2 RTX running natively on AMD GPU?

I use Radeon RX 6800 with Kernel 5.10.6 + Mesa 20.3.3, but the game won't launch. And I see this log:
FATAL: No ray tracing capable GPU found.

Fans being controlled automatically is the best thing I can get.

I think you don't get how this fan control behaves.
The fans are still controlled automatically based on current workload. But they do have speed limits on each mode.
Before using this driver, it seems my laptop fans stay at normal mode, so they won't reach their maximum speed :(
Yes, sometimes I need my laptop fans to work at their maximum speed on heavy workload. But they are noisy. I don't want them to react sensitively when I don't need them to be.

In short, fan control is a compromise between automatic and manual fan speed settings.

There's a similar effort for the ASUS TUF Gaming series laptops:

Spoiler, click me
It seems that some objects are overlapping.
But it's normal with -force-vulkan.
What a disaster!
It's only normal on the first gameplay (Wintermute/Survival). But when I exit to the main menu and then back to play, suddenly a few spiky objects appeared, like explosions.
