STALKER was launched on the Russian processor “Elbrus” – watch the video

The shooter STALKER, a platformer in the spirit of Sonic and Sonic Robo Blast 2, was launched on the Russian processor of the Elbrus family.

A video demonstrating the operation of several games on a PC with an Elbrus processor family installed was published on the Elbrus PC Test YouTube channel. The Elbrus-8S model was used.

Two games from the STALKER series – “Clear Sky” (2008) and “Call of Pripyat” (2009), ported to OpenGL, were able to run on it. The frame rate did not exceed 30 fps, it dropped to 20. At the moment of firing, it dropped to 10-15 fps. For 3 months, the author of the video tried to fully compile the game.

In the description of the video, the configuration of the workstation was attached: BITBLAZE OBERON 100L: Elbrus-8C (8 cores at 1.3 GHz), 32 GB of DDR3-ECC RAM, Radeon RX 580 (8 GB), SSD GS Nanotech, OS Elbrus 6 ( Linux 5.4).

In addition to STALKER, a platformer in the spirit of Sonic was launched – Open Surge (timecode 54:30). The game is pretty simple and worked stably. Then Sonic Robo Blast 2 was launched (it was made by fans), which is made on the DOOM 2 engine. In general, the game runs more stable than STALKER

So far, the Russian processor is not very suitable for demanding games.
