GRID 2 - the game that was supposedly unplayable in Linux. I made it work in Linux almost 2 years before Steam made it work but it took some time to find a good quality codec with which to record the gameplay, that's why the video is just a year old.

OS: Arch Linux
Kernel: x86_64 Linux 5.6.14-arch1-1
Shell: bash
DE: Cinnamon 4.6.1
CPU: Intel Core i7-4770 @ 8x 3.9GHz [33.0°C]
GPU: GeForce GTX 1050 Ti
RAM: 32037MiB

There's only one way to run this game for the moment and it's not Steam Proton. It's Wine 5.7 with DXVK 1.7, using library override (32-bit d3d11.dll and dxgi.dll) in winecfg and ulimits set to 1048576 (without that limit set to this number - forget to be able to run the game).
If there's any graphical breaking up on the video, it's because of the recording program (Simple Screen Recorder) and is also the reason I crashed several times. Without SSR the game runs perfectly smooth.

Note: nowadays it can be played with Steam Proton 6.xx or Experimental but the frame rate is still a lot lower than the frame rate of Wine outside of Steam.
