 GameWorks Vulkan and OpenGL Samples 3.0 Released                             


We have rolled out a big upgrade to our GameWorks graphics API samples (formerly known as the OpenGL Samples) – we’ve added support for Vulkan in the framework on all platforms: Windows, Android, desktop Linux and Linux 4 Tegra!  The source code and documentation are available today.  Check them out at:

Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.7.1 Highlights
    • The Radeon™ RX 480’s power distribution has been improved for AMD reference boards, lowering the current drawn from the PCIe bus.
    • A new “compatibility mode” UI toggle has been made available in the Global Settings menu of Radeon Settings. This option is designed to reduce total power with minimal performance impact if end users experience any further issues.  This toggle is “off” by default.
    • Performance improvements for the Polaris architecture that yield performance uplifts in popular game titles of up to 3% [1]. These optimizations are designed to improve the performance of the Radeon™ RX 480, and should substantially offset the performance impact for users who choose to activate the "compatibility" toggle.
Fixed Issues
    • Radeon™ RX 480 limited PCI-E Bandwidth (PCI-E bandwidth is now at the correct speed on the Radeon™ RX 480) with Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.7.1.
    • Minor stuttering no longer occurs in Grand Theft Auto V on Radeon™ RX 480 with Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.7.1.
    • Video corruption will not be observed in DOOM with resolutions above 1920x1080 with Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.7.1.
    • Hitman™ graphical corruption no longer occurs when the game is set to use DirectX®12 API and using zoom with weapons with Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.7.1.
    • Display will not exhibit minor flicker on Radeon™ RX 480 when Freesync is enabled on a games launch or exit with Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.7.1.

This driver supports Vulkan, officially only for Skylake

+ Vulkan device name recognition has been fixed
- Vulkan API version is reported as 1.0.0

Seascape demo in GPUCapsViewer crashes with Broadwell (using modified driver).
Can s.o. check with Skylake?

NB: comes with old OpenGL driver without Doom 2016 support

This driver adds support for a couple of mobile Pascal GPUs

Driver has been withdrawn by manufacturer.
The interesting stuff are the new GPUs anyway...

3D-Tech News Around The Web / NVIDIA HairWorks 1.2 released
« on: June 24, 2016, 03:20:40 PM »
HairWorks 1.2 Release Notes
===========================

NVIDIA HairWorks is a library for simulating and rendering dynamic hair and fur.

What's New
----------

This is a point release and changes the API significantly from 1.1.x.

* DirectX11
* Frame rate independent rendering
* Api consistency and style improvements
* Samples use a native sample framework
* Support for rendering to a cube-map
* Fully customizable serialization (implementations for memory and file system)
* Small bug fixes and improvements 
* Dynamic hair pins
* Tether hair pins
* Hair pin mesh ornaments


DirectX12
---------

NVIDIA HairWorks 1.2 for DirectX12 is under active development, and is **NOT AVAILABLE** within this public release. The documentation on DirectX12 usage and the Sdk headers are for illustrative purposes only and may be subject to change. Early access to HairWorks 1.2 for DirectX12 is available to developers on request at
visualfx-licensing@nvidia.com

Known Limitations
------------------

* No multi material support for any mesh type in the HairWorks viewer.

* Currently there is no support for adding extra animation files via fbx in the HairWorks viewer.

* Shadows may flicker a bit depending on the asset in HairWorks viewer. This is due to shadow resolution and depends on the shadow sampling techniques used in a given game engine.

* Guide hairs must be placed on the vertex of a growth mesh. DCC plug ins will move guides to closest vertex if they are not properly aligned.

* Only one guide per vertex is supported. Extra guides on vertex will be ignored at export.

* Number of cv/knot sampling per guide hair is the same per asset. Sampling is adjusted in DCC.

* Hair Interaction does not opperate between hairs of different assets.

* Alpha sorting is not supported.  So the root alpha feature must be used with limited range.

* The viewer currently supports only one character. However the character can have multiple hair assets.

Source Sample Assets
------------------
Source files were generated with:

* 3dsmax 2013 native 3dsMax Hair and Fur modifier.
* Maya 2013.5 Shave and a Haircut from http://www.joealter.com

3D-Tech News Around The Web / Vulkan SDK 1.0.17.0 Released
« on: June 24, 2016, 03:18:15 PM »
 
This SDK supports Vulkan API revision 1.0.17.  The prior SDK supported Vulkan API revision 1.0.13.
Device layers are now deprecated! Any device layers must be converted to a layer that is queried and enabled at vkCreateInstance. vkEnumerateDeviceLayerProperties is deprecated.
  Overview of new features in SDK 1.0.17.0
  • VulkanInfo has been improved
  • Fence tracking and validation has been rearchitected
  • Validation layer test suite has been enhanced
  • Added default validation error callbacks
  • Additional structural and architectural layer improvements and cleanup to core_validation
  • Scores of bugfixes, new validation checks, and feature additions
This version of the SDK components are based on the following specifications and source code repositories:
   Last Commits
  • LoaderAndValidationLayers:     e966288576573  docs: Fix broken link in LoaderAndLayerInterface
