Crysis PC Game running on RK3399 with TwisterOS Armbian 2.0.0. with BOX86 + PANFROST.

For those who wants to have the best possible browser experience on TwisterOS Armbian 2.0.1, I strongly advise you to try new Chromium-beta arm64, it's better and faster than latest firefox, supports panfrost and full HW acceleration on browser and has video decoding features and can even work with widevine:

- sudo add-apt-repository ppa : saiarcot895/chromium-beta
- sudo apt install chromium-browser chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra

Now, let's Force GPU acceleration Flags:

- In chromium browser type:
- search for raster and enable for both:
1. GPU rasterization
2. Zero-copy rasterizer

-search for render and select enabled for

3. Override software rendering list

- restart chromium.

To enable hardware video decoding, open chrome://flags, search for "Hardware-accelerated video decode", enable the entry, and restart Chromium.

Make sure your chrome://gpu  matches mine:
