  • Added support for the following GPU:

    • Quadro P4000 with Max-Q Design
  • Fixed an intermittent hang when using Vulkan to present directly to display with the VK_KHR_display extension.  SteamVR was particularly affected by that hang.
  • Disabled G-SYNC in desktop environments, such as Budgie, that use libmutter-0.so.
  • An existing rule to disable G-SYNC for libmutter.so no longer applied after the library was renamed to libmutter-0.so.
  • Updated nvidia-installer to label kernel modules with SELinux file type 'modules_object_t'. Some system SELinux policies only permit loading of kernel modules with this SELinux file type.
  • Removed support for checking for and downloading updated driver packages and precompiled kernel interfaces from nvidia-installer. This functionality was limited to unencrypted ftp and http, and was implemented using code that is no longer actively maintained.

Double-checked with Android Oreo, performance decreased abysmal.
I'll re-check in 18 months with "Android Pudding"  ::)

Today we added a new Vulkan test to our 3DMark Android benchmarking app. The new API Overhead feature test lets you compare the performance of Vulkan and OpenGL ES 3.0 APIs on your Android smartphone and tablet.
 3DMark API Overhead feature test Vulkan is a new graphics API that provides high-efficiency, low-level access to modern GPUs in a wide variety of devices from PCs to smartphones. APIs like Vulkan make better use of multi-core CPUs to streamline code execution and eliminate software bottlenecks, particularly for draw calls.
Games typically make thousands of draw calls per frame, but each one creates performance-limiting overhead for the CPU. APIs with less overhead can handle more draw calls and produce richer visuals. The API Overhead feature test is an impartial test for comparing the performance of Vulkan and OpenGL ES 3.0.
The 3DMark API Overhead feature test measures API performance by making a steadily increasing number of draw calls. The result of the test is the number of draw calls per second achieved by each API before the frame rate drops below 30 FPS.
The purpose of the test is to compare the relative performance of different APIs on a single mobile device. The API Overhead feature test is not a general-purpose GPU benchmark, and it should not be used to compare different Android devices or to compare Android devices with Apple devices.
We recommend reading the 3DMark Technical Guide, which goes into more detail and explains the important differences between feature tests and benchmarks.
 Important notes on compatibility The OpenGL ES 3.0 part of the test requires Android 5.0 or later and a device that supports OpenGL ES 3.0.
The Vulkan part of the test requires Android 7.0 or later and a device that supports Vulkan.
Please note that devices that shipped with early Vulkan drivers may have performance and stability issues in this test. Vulkan performance can be much lower than expected, and the test can crash on devices with underdeveloped Vulkan drivers. Performance on these older devices may improve with future Android OS updates.
 Download 3DMark is a free Android benchmark app available from Google Play.

Looks like Nexus 6P with Nougat update August 2017 is impacted.
I'll re-check with Oreo later...

3D-Tech News Around The Web / Vulkan API specifications 1.0.59 released
« on: August 20, 2017, 12:19:43 PM »

Change log for August 19, 2017 Vulkan 1.0.59 spec update:

  * Bump API patch number and header version number to 59 for this update.

Github Issues:

  * Fix a few missing Implicit Valid Usage statements to indicate that a
    common parent of two objects is required (public issue 497).
  * Clarify render pass synchronization language for
    slink:VkSubpassDependency and \<\<renderpass,render passes>> (public
    issue 531).
  * Rename ename:VK_STRUCTURE_TYPE_SURFACE_CAPABILITIES2_EXT to
    ename:VK_STRUCTURE_TYPE_SURFACE_CAPABILITIES_2_EXT for consistency, and
    add an alias for backwards compatibility (public issue 539).

Internal Issues:

  * Add an explanation to the \<\<interfaces-builtin-variables-layer,
    code:Layer>> description explaining that writing to invalid layers
    results may or may not result in primitives being processed and fragment
    shaders being run, and gives undefined results in the framebuffer
    (internal issue 614)
  * Add valid usage statement for slink:VkDescriptorSetLayoutBinding
    requiring that input attachment descriptor bindings must not use
    non-fragment stages (internal issue 933).

Other Issues:

  * Makes description of pname:loadOp and pname:storeOp easier to read in
    the \<\<renderpass-load-store-ops>> section.

New Extensions:

  * `VK_EXT_shader_stencil_export`

3D-Tech News Around The Web / The Vulkan Device Simulation Layer
« on: August 20, 2017, 03:57:38 AM »
LunarG recently made the new Vulkan Device Simulation layer public. This is a Vulkan instance level layer that injects physical device properties, limits and features based on a json input file, simulating different features than the actual Vulkan device you are running on. The idea behind this is to help developers check if their Vulkan applications can handle devices with missing features and tighter limits without having to actually run on a such a device. It’s not an emulation (like a software rasterizer, e.g. WARP for DirectX) and only affects queries against the device limits and features, so you can’t magically get e.g. tessellation support on a device that doesn’t support it by using this layer.

But still this is a nice addition to the Vulkan eco system and is especially handy for smaller devs that don’t own all the different devices they intend to run their applications on. With this layer you check your fallback paths and how your application handles missing device features.

Something has changed in Vulkan sync because Vulkan demos of GPU Caps Viewer do not work anymore

Works fine with GeForce 840M - Maxwell 1st gen
Do the different generations have own render paths?

3D-Tech News Around The Web / RenderDoc v0.91 - Bugfix release
« on: August 16, 2017, 10:37:26 PM »
Version v0.91 - Bugfix release

As a follow up from v0.90, this includes an important bugfix that unfortunately wasn't caught in release testing.


It primarily affects D3D captures with shader source embedded (compiled with D3D11COMPILE_DEBUG or the appropriate fxc switch) although it could affect GL/Vulkan captures in some circumstances. When debugging or sometimes when opening the shader with source files available, there was a crash due to code not being updated for the UI layout changes to cope with the GCN disassembly feature that was added.
