2 – Release Notes

This new version of GPU Caps Viewer brings the support of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 16 Series (GTX 1660 Ti and GTX 1660) as well as a partial support of AMD Radeon VII (partial support because I added some monitoring code without testing it on a Radeon VII).

GPU Caps Viewer 1.42.0 - GPU panel + GeForce RTX 1080

GPU Caps Viewer 1.42.0 - GPU panel + Radeon RX Vega 56

I updated the Vulkan plugin (used for GeeXLab demos) to fix some warnings and errors detected by the validation layer (Vulkan SDK) for recent graphics drivers.

Another bug in the Seascape demo in Vulkan has been fixed for Intel GPUs.

The seascape demo in previous GPU Caps Viewer (with Intel driver v6577) with the bug:
