Neat. I wonder if this will help with optimization more for AMD cards vs Nvidia...? 

I guess it would, considering that it is Build by AMD's Mantle :)

But as it is now open-source and Nvidia supports it as well, I believe and hope it will work equally good on both systems.

As ealier stated, I really just wish that more game devs would start supporting this, but I betcha that MS is fighting this any way they can!

How well does vulkan work on Nvidia cards btw?

Hard to answer.

There is a 7 months old PCgamer article that shows that AMD benefits more from vulkan than Nvidia.

There is an equally old article from Phoronics that test vulkan vs OpenGL on Linux where Nvidia seems to profit from first party drivers.

And there are also claims by Nvidia that they improved DX12 and possibly Vulkan performance by up to 33% on the current 378.78 driver.

Unless some reviewer with both cards at hand does another OpenGL vs. Vulkan spring 2017 edition we have no idea.

Also by the time CIG finishes implementation we probably have the next generation hardware from both teams anyway so the whole table gets flipped again.

Someone used the "L" word

 

Will there be a Linux release for Star Citizen?

Chris has said there always will be just it'll be after initial release, the main issue with no Linux build was cryengine and Nvidia not updating the engine/drivers or something, if you really want the reason I'll have to go digging.

 

@Slick news worthy?

Well there's a thread in Tech news already but goes as expected:

No, they didn't. Crytek changed the engine's name to Lumberyard. But it's still the same engine.

 

SC's version of it is so heavily modified at this point that it can be considered something altogether different, but that's another story. :)

if i'm not mistaken the Lumberyard engine is owned by amazon, not crytek.  Did amazon acquire crytek?

Well, kinda yes and no. Officially, Amazon "developed" Lumberyard under license from Crytek.  Factually, they just gave Crytek a bunch of money to keep them from going bankrupt and now have them and their engine in their pocket. :)
