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.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / New Vulkan example: Deferred shading and shadows
« Last post by Stefan on July 18, 2016, 07:47:16 PM »

Based on the recently updated deferred shading example, I have added a new example to my open source C++ Vulkan samples. This example adds dynamic shadows from multiple light sources, showcasing a few technologies that can be used to make rendering of multiple shadows more efficient.

Both samples work fine with Intel and NVIDIA except from showing 0 fps in title bar

3D-Tech News Around The Web / NVIDIA Quadro driver 368.86
« Last post by Stefan on July 18, 2016, 04:02:02 PM »
  This driver is from the R367 Optimal Drivers for Enterprise [ODE] driver branch. ODE branches are dedicated to relatively long term stability for ISV certification, OEMs, and Enterprise customers.

New features in this branch:
Win7-8:
NVWMI 2.27
 
  • Added controls to manage display Cloning.
  • Added performance counters for PCIe link widths, speeds and bus usage

Optimus
 
  • Added support for Vulkan™ 3D applications to work correctly with Optimus

Windows 10:
NVWMI 2.27
 
  • Added performance counters for PCIe link widths, speeds and bus usage

OpenGL
 
  • Added preliminary OpenGL support for cluster synchronization with Swap Groups and Swap Barrier for full screen applications.

Optimus/Microsoft Hybrid
 
  • Added support for Vulkan™ 3D applications to work correctly with Optimus/Microsoft Hybrid

 If you would like to be notified of upcoming drivers for Windows, please subscribe here.

For Quadro Notebook:
 This is a reference driver that can be installed on supported NVIDIA notebook GPUs. However, please note that your notebook original equipment manufacturer (OEM) provides certified drivers for your specific notebook on their website. NVIDIA recommends that you check with your notebook OEM about recommended software updates for your notebook. OEMs may not provide technical support for issues that arise from the use of this driver.

 Linux, Solaris, and FreeBSD driver 367.35 (long-lived branch release)

Release highlights since 367.27:
 
  • Fixed a regression that could cause console corruption when resuming from suspend.
  • Improved buffer write performance of the nvidia-drm DRM KMS driver by using write-combined DRM Dumb Buffers where available.
  • Fixed a bug that caused X to crash when applying changes to the RandR CscMatrix property while VT-switched away from X.
  • Fixed a bug that caused a crash when exiting nvidia-settings on displays with 8 or 15 bit color depths.
  • Added support for querying clock values on Pascal GPUs.
  • Removed the Base Mosaic configuration option from nvidia-settings on systems where the feature is not actually supported.
  • Fixed a bug that caused nvidia-smi to report an inaccurate version number.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented nvidia-bug-report.sh from finding relevant messages in kernel log files.
  • Added /var/log/dmesg to the list of paths which are searched by nvidia-bug-report.sh for kernel messages.
