Last week it became known that the State Duma may ban many games. The list included, for example, Assassin’s Creed, Borderlands, Dragon Age, The Last of Us, Fallout, Apex Legends, Overwatch, The Sims 3 and some others. And now it became known where this list came from.

The State Duma explained where they got the list of games with propaganda promoting violence, cruelty and non-traditional relationships

The first deputy head of the State Duma Committee on Education, Yana Lantratova, proposed new amendments to the bill on the promotion of non-traditional relations. They concern games that may describe such relationships, be violent or call for suicide. The initiative also affects games with profanity.

As it turned out, Yana Lantratova took this list from the Internet, or rather, this is the list of GLAAD Media Awards nominees. According to the deputy, this data is in the public domain.

In some games I came across myself, some of my friends paid attention. When I took up this topic, I was very surprised by their number and the presence of a special award. Whether it is right or not to propose such bans will be decided by the relevant committee, to which I sent my amendments. But, as a mother and a person living in a country whose state ideology is understandable and close to me, I think that it is impossible to turn a blind eye to the promotion of non-traditional relationships in the gaming industry.“, – said Lantratova.

At the same time, she clarified that she only gave examples of such products, but did not offer to “ban” these games as soon as possible.

Earlier, the State Duma already wanted to impose restrictions on the sale of games that offer to play for the military from unfriendly countries.

The company has worked on optimization for some specific games, adding native support for DirectX 9. In particular, it is important to note Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, in which the performance of Arc adapters increased by almost 80%. The company has also worked on the 1% percentile, increasing the rate by up to 2.3 times, which should make the gameplay smoother.

Not all old games have received an impressive performance boost, but Intel can still be commended for continuing to work on its accelerators.

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.

Thus, AMD and Intel still have a lot of work to do to make their cards more competitive on Linux. Given the release of Steam Deck and the breakthrough in the development of Linux as a gaming system, this can be very relevant.
