VK-Z 0.6.0 has been compiled with the latest Vulkan API 1.0.46 header files.


VK-Z 0.6.0 - GeForce GTX 1050


Update: 2017.04.16

VK-Z 0.6.0.3 is a maintenance release. On Windows 32-bit, compilation options have been changed to avoid false positive detection on major antivirus scanners. Now VK-Z 0.6.0.3 is clean for the following scanners:
– ESET Nod32: clean
– Avira: clean
– Avast: clean
– Kaspersky: clean
– AVG: clean
– Norton: clean
– McAfee: clean

VK-Z 0.6.0.3 has been compiled with the latest Vulkan headers v1.0.48 and the Linux 64-bit version has been updated.
