Crew Trouffman Posted September 23, 2013 Crew Share Posted September 23, 2013 Hey guys, The news is the first of 3 this week but that might be the most important one... Valve announces their SteamOS based on linux. http://store.steampowered.com/livingroom/SteamOS/'>http://store.steampowered.com/livingroom/SteamOS/ http://store.steampowered.com/livingroom/ From a pure Ocer point of view that might not really matter... but if we look a bit wider, what is impacting strongly the Gaming community in the roots might impact us in the more or less distant future. For almost every gamers are on windows, benchmarks and game engine are on windows too... With a Huge actor like Valve with Steam start providing Gaming-enabled Linux-based capabilities to PC, that mean there will have a need to compare games quality on both platforms... per say benchmark them. "Well that's only for games" you might say... Indeed but think about it, expect some cases the benchmarks are based on 'game-engine' and used first to approve a configuration for performance for games (while this never been really completly correctly done...). No one can Deny that Gaming was part of gettign so many Benchamrks and such a strogn use in reviews, it is also now understood that the Overclocking Community is a Market by itslef, no longer related to Gaming With the last few month benchmarks on ARM platform it's been interestign to see some unix knowledge thrown in the OC community, this might be just the beginning. Do you think this will impact the OC community in a good way ? What do you expect from that ? (More benchmarks on unix ?, Tweaking on multiple OSes... ?) Just my 3cents.
