Oil Rush Screenshots

October 16th, 2010 by Crusader

Unigine, developers of their eponymous cross-platform 3D engine, have update the site for their next game, Oil Rush, with new screenshots, and mention the minimum GPU requirements: NVIDIA GeForce 8600 or ATI Radeon 2600. I’m completely out of the loop on graphics card/driver performance in Linux these days; what are you using and how well does it run?

    I am running a geforce 8500 gt and it runs great for me I have no found a game that I can not run on it yet :-)

    It’s good to finally some of the UI for this game which confirmed my suspicion that the strategy element is likely to be fairly simplistic at least compared to something like SpringRTS. The variety of units and tactics should still prove to be interesting though.

    3300 on-board here, but I am willing to upgrade.

    NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX. A little old, but still a nice card, didn’t have any performance problems with linux games so far. :)
    Oil Rush looks really neat – I’m looking forward to a nice rts on linux =)

    Nvidia GeForce 9800gtx+ 512Mt, native games played always nice. same goes with games under wine i have got to working…

    I am currently using an ATI Radeon 3650 and as far as 3D performance goes I am more than happy with it. I use the free software drivers for most things, such as desktop use and older or less intensive games (which is mostly what I play anyway) and the Catalyst dirvers for more demanding tasks. I have not had any real perfromance problems using either of them, and as the free drives improve the situation can only get better.

    An ati 2600 these days is the very low end of the ati cards.
    I haven’t been able to stress a HD4890 vapor-x crossfire setup. Max load on both cards was 20% with etqw maxed.
    Unigine heaven benchmark maxed does stress a single to 100%, with not-enough-fps. Then again I haven’t seen that one running smooth on any platform (read: “the other” platform even on very low quality), but those cards weren’t comparable.

    8600GT Here, too slow to running games so I set all graphics settings low for those game I wanted.
