Modern video cards (and not only) are almost always compared in Windows, which is logical. But, if suddenly someone needs Linux, but wants to play, the choice of a 3D card should be approached a little differently. As recent tests have shown, in this case, Nvidia reigns supreme.

The Phoronix resource has tested many modern video cards from different segments in Linux in several actual games. The results are different from what we are used to seeing when using Windows.

As you can see, GeForce graphics cards will be the preferred choice for Linux gamers. For example, the GeForce RTX 3060 usually outperforms the Radeon RX 6600 XT, although the latter is faster when using Windows. There is an exception in the form of Hitman 3, where the balance of power is generally similar to what we see in Windows. Also, some Nvidia cards show strange results in F1.

The Intel Arc A770 adapter, where he participated, proved to be a complete failure, but Intel initially warned that DirectX 12 was needed for the normal operation of its new products.

Xbox will raise prices for new console games including

Microsoft’s gaming division plans to raise prices for a number of exclusive Xbox Series console games starting in 2023. The list includes Forza Motorsport, Redfall and Starfield, as well as some other games from in-house studios. Now released games cost about $60, but next year the price will rise to $70.

Xbox will raise prices for new console games - including Starfield

Earlier, Take-Two Interactive, Ubisoft and Sony raised prices in a similar way. At the same time, data are provided only for the United States. The company notes that regional prices may differ, but it is not clear how much. According to Xbox, the price mouth reflects the scale of games, their technical complexity and content.

At the same time, almost all of these games will be available as part of the Game Pass subscription from the day of release. Perhaps in this way the company is pushing users to buy subscriptions, and therefore raises prices.

At the same time, it is not reported whether the consoles themselves will rise in price. Sony has previously raised the price of the PS5, but other companies have not followed suit. However, in October, the head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, said that the company had tried to keep the prices of consoles, games and subscriptions to the last, but it was simply impossible to do this forever.
