3D-Tech News Around The Web / NVIDIA PhysX System Software 9.16.0318
« on: July 01, 2016, 06:03:02 PM »
Stand-alone download if you need CPU PhysX on your AMD or Intel rig. (It's already included in recent NVIDIA drivers.)
  • Changes & fixed issues in this release
    • Adds Support for 1000 series GPUs for Batman Arkham Knight.

>download now<

 No changelog yet, so we have to sneak a peek at the runtimes

GeForce libclhWeb.dylib supports
 Tesla libclh.dylib supports

 GeForceGLDriverWeb exposes first Vulkan tidbits (unless it's junk from a cross-compiler)

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

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


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

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

3D-Tech News Around The Web / Vulkan SDK 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
  • 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

« on: June 13, 2016, 05:17:06 PM »
Version 1.29 for windows®
  • Intel Broadwell-E/EP processors.
  • Intel Skylake Pentium and Celeron.
  • AMD Carrizo APUs.
  • Adds disks volumes space utilisation.

  • Added support for the following GPUs:
    • GeForce GTX 1080
      GeForce GTX 1070
  • Added support for VDPAU Feature Set H to the NVIDIA VDPAU driver. GPUs with VDPAU Feature Set H are capable of hardware-accelerated decoding of 8192x8192 (8k) H.265/HEVC video streams.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the X server to sometimes skip displaying Vulkan frames when the Composite extension is enabled.
  • Fixed a bug that would cause OpenGL applications to crash when creating a context on one X display connection, then making it current with no associated drawable on another X display connection.  This fixes a crash when starting some versions of Matlab.
  • Fixed OpenGL presentation to SDI through the GLX_NV_video_out and GLX_NV_present_video extensions, which was broken by the introduction of the nvidia-modeset kernel module in 358.09.
  • Fixed a bug that caused an incorrect offset to be applied when using the full composition pipeline on a display whose image has both a rotation and a ViewportOut offset applied.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause nvidia-settings to crash on some systems when responding to events such as hotplugging DisplayPort devices.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause crashes in OpenGL applications which use glTextureView() with a non-zero minlevel.
  • Enhanced the Display Device information page in nvidia-settings with additional information for DisplayPort devices to reflect attributes which are specific to DisplayPort connections.
  • Fixed a bug which could cause deleted application profiles to appear when editing rules in the nvidia-settings control panel.
  • Fixed a bug that caused hangs when a G-SYNC monitor is unplugged and a non-G-SYNC monitor is connected while G-SYNC is active.
  • Fixed a bug that caused "nvidia-modeset: ERROR: GPU:0: Activating G-SYNC failed" to be printed to the system log if a G-SYNC monitor is connected and stereo is enabled in xorg.conf on a configuration that doesn't support it.
  • Added the NV_robustness_video_memory_purge OpenGL extension, which
  • allows applications to know when a mode switching or power event purged the contents of FBOs and BOs residing in video memory.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented HDMI 2.0 4K monitors from waking up from sleep or hot-replug.
  • Fixed a bug that could lead to a system crash if there was a peer-to-peer mapping still active during CUDA context teardown.

Sure all of you already read numerous GeForce GTX 1080 reviews, but some still may be left thinking – “what’s about real overclocking, how far this puppy can go with watercooling/subzero cooling?”. It’s time you find out this. Performance boundaries are pushed once again, possible once more with arch changes and latest 16nm TSMC process node technology upgrade. Most of our readers already know all key specifications and performance figures of reference GTX 1080 cards, so I’ll not bother you with that and we go straight to overclocking the new cards.
