Our new GeForce Game Ready 365.10 WHQL drivers are optimized for Battleborn, Forza Motorsport 6: Apex Beta, the Overwatch Open Beta, and the ongoing Paragon Beta. To download and install, simply fire up GeForce Experience and click on the "Drivers" tab.
 

Gearbox Software's "hero shooter", Battleborn, launches May 3rd. Mixing first-person shooting with MOBA-style gameplay, Battleborn pits teams of players against one another online, or co-operatively in the game's story mode.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / (Vulkan) Stardust demo/benchmark
« on: April 21, 2016, 06:41:38 PM »
   The Stardust sample application uses the Vulkan graphics API to efficiently render a cloud of animated particles.

For some reason it fails with NVIDIA GeForce 840M and driver 364.91/364.96
But it works fine with Intel Broadwell HD 5500 and patched driver 20.19.15.4404  :P

3D-Tech News Around The Web / 3DMark 2.0.2067 (major update)
« on: April 16, 2016, 07:45:26 AM »
  What's new in 3DMark 2.0.2067

This is a major update that adds a redesigned UI for all editions and a preview of VRMark for Advanced and Professional Edition users.


 New
  • 3DMark UI has been redesigned and rebuilt to be faster and more flexible.
  • Home screen recommends the best test for your PC based on your system details.
  • Run other benchmarks and feature tests from the Benchmarks screen.
  • Russian localization.
Improved
  • Each benchmark test can now be updated independently.
  • Ice Storm Extreme and Ice Storm Unlimited are unlocked in 3DMark Basic Edition.
  • SystemInfo module updated to 4.43 for improved hardware detection.
VRMark preview
  • Explore two test scenes in a preview of VRMark, our new benchmark for VR systems. The preview does not produce a score.
  • The VRMark preview is not available in 3DMark Basic Edition or the Steam demo.
Fixed
  • Workaround for the AMD driver issue where the preview videos in the UI caused some AMD graphics cards to use low power mode and run at lower clock speeds.

Khronos Chapter Munich Vulkan Slides

I’ve been speaking about my Vulkan launch day contributions and my experiences moving from OpenGL to Vulkan at the Khronos Munich Chapter Grand Opening last friday at the AMD offices. This was a great event, and finally getting to know some of the people in real was an awesome personal experience. So at this point I’d like to thank all the people that helped make this event happen and all these that attended, had a real blast talking and discussing about Vulkan!
For those interested, I have added my Slides to the Vulkan github repository.

  • LUNARG_param_checker validation layer renamed to LUNARG_parameter_validation
  • 100+ feature additions, improvements, and bug fixes to validation layers
  • LUNARG_core_validation layer new checks: renderpass attachment aliasing, shader capabilities check against device features, render Area within frame buffer boundaries semaphores lifetimes across queues, attachment count checking
  • loader: add temporary debug_report callbacks during DestroyInstance
  • loader: add instance and device callbacks for drivers or layers which create dispatchable objects
  • loader: report any implicit layer instance extensions
  • parameter_validation new checks for pNext in structs, enum falls in proper begin/end range, checks for VkBool32 parameters
  • windows runtime installer: install both 32 and 64 bit Visual Studio redistributables if either is not already installed

  • Added support for the following GPUs:
    • Quadro M6000 24GB
  • Fixed several EGL driver interaction problems with resizing windows in Wayland.
  • Fixed a bug that caused some DRM PRIME configurations to fail when DRM KMS was enabled (i.e., nvidia-drm.ko's modeset kernel module parameter was set to "1").
  • Fixed a bug that could cause a kernel crash when VDPAU was used while DRM KMS was enabled.
  • Updated the libglvnd snapshot included in the NVIDIA driver package to libglvnd commit b7d75429677eecc00c3701aaa4deac1304bc51ff. This contains a new revision of the libglvnd ABI. The driver is not compatible with a libglvnd older than commit c5bcda3b848fe52d6ae6ef25c917431c06d62d27.
  • Limited the default concurrency level in nvidia-settings to 32, to avoid hitting the maximum tasks limit on systems with many CPUs.

Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.4.1 Highlights

Support for:
    • Quantum Break™
      • Upto 35% faster performance using Quantum Break™ on Radeon™ R9 Fury X than with Radeon™ Software Crimson Edition 16.3.2(1).
    • Oculus Rift™
    • HTC Vive™
Resolved Issues
    • Frame rate capping issues experienced in some DirectX®12 applications is resolved.
    • Hitman™ may experience flickering when played in DirectX® 11 mode using high game shadow settings.

 In INF file replace [Manufacturer] section with that from last driver which worked for you.

 STEP 2a)
 disable driver signature - secure boot off

 bcdedit -set load options DISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
 bcdedit -set test signing ON

 STEP 2b)
 disable driver signature - secure boot on

 bcdedit -set load options DISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
enable test signing via enhanced start options


 STEP 3)
Follow this fool-proof "havedisk" installation tutorial
