December 10, 2016, that's the date set by the video game developers Grid Autosport for this racing and driving simulation title to reach the penguin platform (SteamOS and other GNU / Linux distros), as well as for Mac. Well, the title is now also available for these platforms after a long wait since 2014, when it came to Windows, PlayStation, and Xbox.
Gird Autosport developers are Feral Interactive, and so they announced it from their social networks, specifically from Twitter. Now the simulator with multiplayer options also comes to us so that we can enjoy it, both on our PC and in the Steam Machines if we have any of them. With it we can enjoy driving vehicles of different categories, from cars to a Formula 3 car.
To be able to enjoy racing in this fantastic video game, which could be a good gift for this Christmas, we will need a moderately powerful hardware. The requirements that were pointed out on the video game's official website are an Intel Core 2 Dudo 2.6Ghz or higher in terms of CPU, about 4GB of RAM, and an NVIDIA graphics card with 1GB of graphics memory or higher, with 600 series GPUs. Of course, AMD graphics cards and their equivalent processors are also valid ...
By the way, and even if it is a post about video games and a Linux blog, I take the opportunity to announce that AMD already has an official name for its first chip for the desktop based on the Zen microarchitecture, it is called AMD Ryzen and it's a little bit more powerful than the Intel Core i7 6900K, Intel's most powerful chip today. But this may seem like a small advantage, but it must be noted that Ryzen only has a 95w TDP compared to Intel's 140w consumption, and also the Intel chip costs about € 1200 compared to the € 200-300 that Ryzen would cost. That is something juicy!
