Quote from: Freahk on November 27, 2020, 03:38:34 PMAs expected, apart from fan noise, I didn't notice any difference. Subjectively, running the BB save offline on the nvidia GPU did not run more smoothly than running the same on the intel GPU.Reported framerates have been roughly the same and running each of these for an hour at different times resulted in nearly the same ingame time (except from ~2 minutes) after that meantioned real-world hour.As expeced, dedicated vs integrated GPU doesn't matter pretty much in simutrans.

Quote from: prissi on November 27, 2020, 02:00:22 PMSince Simutrans mainly wants memory bandwidth, filling at least two slots of DRAM is preferable. .... So it depends on how many RAM channels you processor and mainboard uses.
Quote from: Matthew on November 28, 2020, 07:18:28 AMI face the inverse problem. The graphics side of Ryzen APUs is not officially supported on Linux and despite many bug reports (to amdgpu, kernel, mesa, Ubuntu and other distros) very few people get them to work reliably out of the box.

Quote from: Matthew on November 28, 2020, 01:24:11 PMThat's good to hear..... Though balanced by those bug reports. Do you watch YouTube on Chrome, Edge or Firefox-for-Windows? That seems to be the most common place the visual problems manifest for people. (IIRC Firefox for Linux didn't use hardware acceleration until recently, so was unaffected).
