  Vulkan SDK 1.0.21.0 Release Notes  Version 1.0.21.0 for Windows  July 21, 2016 This SDK supports Vulkan API revision 1.0.21.  The prior SDK supported Vulkan API revision 1.0.17.
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 1.0.21.0
  • Memory Barrier Vulkan Sample demonstrating correct use of memory barriers between write/read operations
  • Device Limits layer validation moved into the core_validation and parameter_validation layers for improved performance, maintainability and clarity
  • Improved coverage and utility in layer validation tests
  • Performance improvements to Threading layer
  • Additional structural and architectural layer improvements and cleanup to core_validation, including improved object lifetime tracking and performance improvements
  • 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:

Alongside the launch of new Radeon Pro WX (workstation) series graphics cards, AMD teased an interesting new Radeon Pro product: the Radeon Pro SSG. This new professional graphics card pairs a Polaris GPU with up ot a terabyte of on board solid state storage and seeks to solve one of the biggest hurdles in GP GPU performance when dealing with extremely large datasets which is latency.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / AMD Anvil v1.0 - a framework for Vulkan
« Last post by Stefan on July 19, 2016, 08:39:10 PM »

Anvil is a framework for Vulkan v1.0, which we have been using internally for quite some time now, in order to develop various Vulkan applications.

Quote
OutOfOrderRasterization is an example application based on the Anvil framework that renders 10k teapots on screen. It uses various Anvil wrappers, so you can use it to get a better understanding of how various parts of the library can be used.

Intel renders nothing, at least not with Broadwell and modified driver :P

3D-Tech News Around The Web / Microsoft DirectX Tool Kit for DirectX 12
« Last post by Stefan on July 19, 2016, 04:33:35 PM »
Quote
Since the release of DirectX Tool Kit four years ago, it has proven to be a very useful library for samples, indie and hobbyist projects, people moving from XNA Game Studio to C++, learning Direct3D 11, and for developers looking for supported replacements for the legacy D3DX library and the retiring of the legacy DirectX SDK.
Today I’m announcing the DirectX Tool Kit for DirectX 12, which is hosted as it’s own GitHub site. After much discussion and debate, we realized that both tool kits are really independent projects. While they share a lot of code (all the non-graphics stuff is 100% identical), the Direct3D 12 API is significantly different than Direct3D 11 so the graphics components ‘feel’ the same but in practice are used very differently.
