Tom’s Hardware on Linux Gaming

January 2nd, 2005 by Crusader

Tom’s Hardware ran a feature article this past week looking at the state of gaming on the Linux platform. The prevalence of Direct3D, graphics driver support, and Cedega issues are all mentioned as current shortfalls.

    1) There are still more games for Windows than Linux.
    2) ATI isn’t as comitted as NVIDIA to making drivers.
    3) Linux is getting better.

    so for me everything I already knew, but I am glad to see the ‘real world’ hearing about it.

    but i miss the trojan,worms,spyware,constant updating and virus scanning ( when is there time for gaming? – running your system is a game)

    >> games, you need to stick to Microsoft

    Halo is a microsucks game and will NEVER be on linux. Why bother mentioning?

    Umm.. Unreal tournament 2004 is pretty old i guess since it’s now 2005 – it’s not a best of best game.

    I don’t believe the ati lies. I bet what really happened was ati was too busy butt-kissing gabe/half-baked2 and then ignored carmack. Then carmack said screw you and released doom3 without having his source code “stolen” like the rookie gabe(who still can’t linux code).

    Playstation III will use nv-opengl and linux so that will force lazy game developers to use gl and will increase our chances of getting games.

    400 coders at nv vs 2( maybe 3 ) at ati…
    “good lord”

    “Canada-based TransGaming”
    canada is where all the troubles come from ati,matrox, transgaming, beer, acid rain… etc.

    Doom 3 most definitely performs better on my machine under Linux than Windoze. No comparison.
