  1. MS putting the squeeze on game stores on Windows, classic.
  2. So happy to report that NVidia proprietary driver 495 finally works on Wayland with GBM in KDE 5.23. I had to hunt down over 100 patches, but it all seems to be working rather blissfully smooth: System Info and Diablo 2 Resurrected running in accelerated XWayland: https://imgur.com/a/kkzOXPr xwayland backport patch: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/xorg/xserver/-/merge_requests/766 qt patch https://codereview.qt-project.org/c/qt/qtwayland/+/373473 egl-wayland 1.1.9 + patch https://github.com/NVIDIA/egl-wayland/pull/38 kwin patches https://invent.kde.org/plasma/kwin/-/merge_requests/1535 and https://invent.kde.org/plasma/kwin/-/merge_requests/662#11743fc803a00c9630cbbe786cdefe525126e957 Applied monstrous DRM leasing patches https://invent.kde.org/plasma/kwayland-server/-/merge_requests/163#5acd093a58f2153fa7f9fd96f979e99bb5737764 and https://invent.kde.org/plasma/kwin/-/merge_requests/662#11743fc803a00c9630cbbe786cdefe525126e957 . Didn't fix panel corruption but required for latest MR1526 pull. KWIN_DRM_USE_EGL_STREAMS=0 KWIN_DRM_USE_MODIFIERS=1 Everything is super responsive -- Firefox, LibreOffice, Topaz Gigapixel AI (wine UI is a bit sticky, but GPU acceleration works!), Steam games (Lichdom Battlemage [CryEngine], Age of Empires DE, Doom Eternal), D3, D2R, Plasma desktop. Played D2R all weekend at 144fps at max settings and not a single crash, unlike with EGLStreams. I proclaim that Wayland gaming on NVidia is finally here, after 13 arduous long years!
  3. It would be nice to see another 700MHz or so on that 9900K. May be an Ampere or Radeon 6000 GPU too, but wishes... this rig deserves it.
  4. Now this I could upgrade from my 5.2GHz 9900K, get me some of that cache.
  5. Having to translate DirectX API calls already put it in 2-class, in terms of performance and functionality. If enough people can put up with it or Windows continues to alienate its users, the wider adoption may eventually shift graphics over to Vulkan which would really boost Linux gaming, paving the way for native adoption.
  6. Perhaps the leaks are per instance, so each additional instance multiplies the effect?
  7. It's a chance to taste and interact before spending money.
  8. Is a justification for the leak really needed -- quite some keyboard warring going on there. Just need casual play to go back to skill-based, rather than rampant stream-incentivized cheating.
  9. All the overclockers have grown up. Everyone else has settled for TVB and PBO. Next, they will settle for nothing, literally.
