64 bit client installs, executes, and is playable if directx version under the game client graphics options is switched to dx9ex.
What does not
Game stutters from time to time especially when loading new scenery/areas and under heavy mob loads. Textures become momentarily blurry (low resolution) before clearing up (high resolution textures load delay). Appears to be dx11 graphics related type of problem. Same stuttering issue is present when switched to dx9 via game client graphics options.
Switching to dx9 via game client graphics options resolves the low res to high res texture load delay (but not the stuttering). Switching to dx9ex via game client graphics options resolves both texture load delay and stuttering, thereby making the game playable.
What was not tested
Path of Exile release version 3.5.4
i7 3770K 3.5GHZ
32 GB RAM
Geforce GTX 970
Note: While not supported by AppDB, dxvk dll (0.96) overrides resolved the dx11 stuttering and texture load delay problems.

It's night and day improvement! I can turn off all the nerf'ing switches now and all is sweet. Eg: It now loads to the login screen in a second, whereas this used to take maybe 30 seconds before the flame was animating smoothly and the login button would click easy. Also, similar, but not as dramatic, level loading speed improvement.
There has been many software updates to everything in that time period, including moving from Kubuntu 17.10 to 18.04.1 and POE and Wine updates too, so can't pin the improvement down to just graphics driver.
I have yet to test heavy battles where it used to get very jerky and near impossible to control the fight but my hopes are high ...
