5 of the Best Linux Distros for Gaming

Filed under
GNU
Linux
Gaming

When it comes to Linux, few people really associate it with gaming. Most people feel that gaming in Linux is not well supported and that there are very little or no games for Linux (which is a myth). Obviously this is not correct as there are plenty of open-source games for Linux as well as Windows-based games that you can install via Wine. The only thing that can hamper the experience is the Linux distro itself. While any Linux distro may be used for gaming, there are some distros specifically optimized for gaming. Here are the best five.<

  • RX 580 vs. GTX 1060 With F1 2017 On Linux - 50-Way Comparison, CPU Utilization

    Adding to the array of articles about F1 2017 that was released a few days back by Feral Interactive as their first Vulkan-exclusive Linux game port, here are some numbers concentrated on the GeForce GTX 1060 vs. Radeon RX 580.

    I've already delivered Radeon vs. NVIDIA benchmarks and some AMDGPU-PRO vs. RADV Vulkan numbers while tomorrow will be our biggest comparison with about two dozen GPUs, coverage of RADV / AMDGPU-PRO / NVIDIA numbers, going back to GCN 1.0 GPUs, etc. But for this Sunday viewing are some additional numbers I've done for those looking at the mid-range graphics card performance.

  • Open-Source Win: RADV Trades Blows With AMDGPU-PRO Vulkan In F1 2017

    Here are some of the most exciting RADV vs. AMDGPU-PRO Vulkan performance benchmarks we have seen to date... The AMDGPU-PRO official AMD Vulkan Linux driver does run with Feral's latest Linux game port, F1 2017, but the community-driven, open-source RADV Vulkan driver often outperforms it!

  • Taisei – A Classy, Frenetic Shoot’em Up Game in the Style of The Touhou Project

    This is a top down perspective shoot’em up game in the style of the Touhou Project. It’s fast, furious, and good fun to play.

    The Touhou Project is a series of Japanese bullet hell shooter video games developed by the single-person Team Shanghai Alice. The game is set in an isolated world full of Japanese folklore. Taisei is a very challenging game to play, particularly if you’ve never played bullet hell type games. Even the ‘easy’ mode is not easy.

    In a shoot ’em up, the player character engages in a lone assault, often in a spacecraft or aircraft, shooting large numbers of enemies while dodging their attacks. The bullet hell tag reflects the plethora of bullets that you must avoid.

  • Auryo is a Desktop SoundCloud App that Works on Linux

    Auyro is a desktop SoundCloud app for Linux, Windows & macOS. It supports Soundcloud features, keyboard shortcuts, and boasts a modern design.

  • Trying Out The Intel Vulkan Driver With F1 2017 On Linux

    With Feral Interactive's port of F1 2017 to Linux, only Radeon via RADV and NVIDIA are supported for this racing game that's making use of the Vulkan graphics API under Linux. For those curious about if Intel graphics can squeeze by for this game with the open-source "ANV" Intel Vulkan driver, I tried it out.

    Following the Radeon RADV vs. NVIDIA GeForce benchmarks yesterday and ahead of some larger comparisons and other discrete GPU Linux tests of this game that was released on Thursday, I decided to see how far Intel graphics could drive this popular game.

Linux Kernel 4.15 Delayed Until Next Week as Linus Torvalds Announces Ninth RC

It's not every day that you see a ninth Release Candidate in the development cycle of a new Linux kernel branch, but here we go, and we can only blame it on those pesky Meltdown and Spectre security vulnerabilities that affect us all, putting billions of devices at risk of attacks. That, and the fact that things haven't calmed down since last week's eight Release Candidate, which was supposed to be the last for the upcoming series. According to Linus Torvalds, there are still has some networking fixes pending, and there's also a very subtle boot bug that was discovered the other day.

Review: Ubuntu MATE 17.10

Ubuntu MATE 17.10 is a solid release with a few minor caveats about the Mutiny layout. The Traditional MATE layout is very nice, but Mutiny still needs some work. For users who want the classic GNOME 2 look-and-feel, Ubuntu MATE is an excellent choice. However, Unity users looking for a Unity-like experience should still give Ubuntu MATE with the Mutiny layout a try, but need to be aware that it does have some issues and it won't work exactly like Unity. The Contemporary layout is also an option for Unity users, but is even further removed from the Unity experience than Mutiny is. Read more
