Change log for June 4, 2017 Vulkan 1.0.51 spec update:

  * Bump API patch number and header version number to 51 for this update.

Github Issues:

  * Add Valid Usage statement to flink:vkCmdResolveImage to require that
    source and destination image formats match (public issue 492).
  * Specify that a code:char* parameter must: be a valid null-terminated
    string in the <<fundamentals-implicit-validity, implicit valid usage>>
    section (public issue 494).
  * Removed unnecessary VU for slink:VkPhysicalDeviceFeatures which is
    covered by ename:VK_ERROR_FEATURE_NOT_PRESENT already (public issue
    496).
  * Clarify valid usage of pname:pQueueFamilyIndices in
    slink:VkBufferCreateInfo, slink:VkImageCreateInfo, and
    slink:VkSwapchainCreateInfoKHR (public issue 501).
  * Document that dependencies of enabled extensions must also be enabled in
    the <<extended-functionality-extensions-dependencies, Extension
    Dependencies>> section (public issue 507).

Internal Issues:

  * Change slink:VkMappedMemoryRange valid usage to allow pname:offset +
    pname:size == size of the allocation. Also, if ename:VK_WHOLE_SIZE is
    used, require the end of the mapping to be aligned to a multiple of
    pname:nonCoherentAtomSize (internal issue 611).
  * Add issue to `VK_KHR_win32_surface` about reusing window objects from a
    different graphics API or Vulkan ICD (internal issue 639).
  * Require locations on user in/out in `GL_KHR_vulkan_glsl` (internal issue
    783).
  * Added version info to the json validation output, and updated the schema
    to match (internal issue 838).
  * Restructure enumerated type descriptions separately from the command or
    structure they are used in, allowing better reference page generation
    (internal issue 841).
  * Re-sort extension appendices to be in alphabetical order within each
    author ID section.
  * Fix enum naming and clarify behavior for
    `VK_NVX_device_generated_commands` extension.

General Discussion / Need help with 1080Ti
« Last post by Koldybay on June 05, 2017, 10:50:40 AM »
Hello, geeks, I got a non-specified problem with video card

Recently I bought ZOTAC 1080Ti Blower Edition and used it for couple of days on my PC with 550 Wt corsair CX550 PSU. Ain't got problem with PSU before and everything seemed smooth with new video card.

During round of Battlefield 1, PC shut down and didn't recover, turned out PSU died, so I bought new 650 Wt PSU. However it wasn't enough because turned out my MB, ASUS Prime H270 Pro also died, so in service center they gave me ASUS Z270 P for couple of week while they repair my MB.

So actual problem is that in games now I experience quick stuttering from time to time, like in BF1 I already saw sign of low FPS, this didn't happen before PSU died. Same in Forza 3 and GR: Wildlands.

I tried FurMark to see if video card also damaged, but everything was OK with 105 FPS average.

Could you please tell me how could I test if video card failing me and should I return it to service cener?
