This will create the true meaning and help support a variety of industries, was really looking forward to the results. Really thank this share.
An AMD based Steam Machine is a horrible idea. SteamOS is only officially supporting Nvidia and Intel GPUs at the moment, because AMD has always been lacking when it came to support and performance for their Linux drivers.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
Hi 3vi1, I thought that AMD was mending their ways with Linux support?
Are you running Steam OS on anything yet?
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
This looks quite nice, actually.
Like to see it reviewed sometime soon.
>> I thought that AMD was mending their ways with Linux support?
They've opened up a lot of reference material to the guys writing the open driver, but their proprietary fglrx driver for Linux has continually had more issues and poorer performance than their proprietary Windows driver.
HOWEVER... just night before last they added a new AMD 'preview' driver to the SteamOS build, which supposedly fixes some of their performance problems as well as desktop drop issues. So, maybe there is hope that SteamOS has given them the kick in the pants they needed.
As for running SteamOS: I already have Steam on all my Linux systems, so it really wouldn't be much different than my Debian system booting straight into big-picture mode (since I don't have a Steam controller). As such, I really haven't had any motivation to play with it yet.. When I can buy a Steam Machine to dedicate to the living room - I will definitely be all over it.
Someone's got to write tutorials to let everyone know that they can apt-get MAME/MESS and run all their classic games on it. :)
