Ubuntu 14.04 VS Windows 7 : Unreal Engine 4 Elemental Demo on an AMD HD5750

A short video checking out the recently released UE4 Elemental demo running on both Ubuntu and Windows, this time on AMD hardware. Currently, Unreal Engine 4 is still in development for Linux. Thus, this is just a short sneak peak on where the performance currently is.

On both the Ubuntu and Windows side, I am using the AMD Catalyst 14.6 RC drivers. Thus, there should be no discrepancies here hopefully.

I was surprised to see that Windows 7 struggled to keep going on with this demo,…


  1. Hi, you should try your games under arch linux, if you go see winehq they have more game playing under arch than ubuntu, and under arch you can install steam with no problem.
    It's only a suggextion, no heart feeling 🙂

  2. Looks like a new version of Catalyst is available.  Still called 14.6 though.  Is this the newest, or the version that came out in late May?  I'd be curious to know if there are any improvements in the Linux version.
