Question about Linux support and Hardware specs

Hello, I only found out about there being a Sins 2 today, so that made my day! Really hyped. @Yarlen

I had a question about Sins, and whether it can be supported by Steam Proton on Linux?

I know that Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion works perfectly fine on Linux with Steam Proton. One could say, that it performs even better on Linux than on Windows due to how little resources Linux uses compared to Windows. I can even run modded games like Stargate and Star Trek mods on Linux with no problems.

I also have some questions regarding the specs on this game. I assume that since it requires 64 bit, that we are not going to have the same 2gb limitation that plagued the original game and Rebellion? I wasn't a fan of the late-game stutters

And would a CPU with higher cache like AMD's 3D v-cache technology on their 78003D, 79003D and 79503D will benefit in terms of performance? Simply put, would more CPU cache have high performance gains for Sins 2?

Thank you to the Developer team for making a Sins 2, you guys are awesome!
