3D-Tech News Around The Web / (Android) Low-overhead rendering with Vulkan

Low-overhead rendering with Vulkan

Developers of games and 3D graphics applications have one key challenge to meet: How complex a scene can they draw in a small fraction of a second? Much of the work in graphics development goes into organizing data so it can be efficiently consumed by the GPU for rendering. But even the most careful developers can hit unforeseen bottlenecks, in part because the drivers for some graphics processors may reorganize all of that data before it can actually be processed. The APIs used to control these drivers are also not designed for multi-threaded use, requiring synchronization with locks around calls that could be more efficiently done in parallel. All of this results in CPU overhead, which consumes time and power that you’d probably prefer to spend drawing your scene.

In order to address some of the sources of CPU overhead and provide developers with more explicit control over rendering, we’ve been working to bring a new 3D rendering API, Vulkan™, to Android. Like OpenGL™  ES, Vulkan is an open standard for 3D graphics and rendering maintained by Khronos. Vulkan is being designed from the ground up to minimize CPU overhead in the driver, and allow your application to control GPU operation more directly. Vulkan also enables better parallelization by allowing multiple threads to perform work such as command buffer construction at once.
NVIDIA's Windows driver version 355.58 and Linux drivers version 355.00.05 provide beta support for OpenGL 2015 ARB extensions and OpenGL ES 3.2 on capable hardware.

 These new OpenGL 2015 ARB extensions require NVIDIA GeForce 900 series or newer GPUs:
  • ARB_post_depth_coverage
  • ARB_fragment_shader_interlock
  • ARB_texture_filter_minmax
  • ARB_sample_locations
  • ARB_shader_viewport_layer_array
  • ARB_sparse_texture2
  • ARB_sparse_texture_clamp
  These new OpenGL 2015 ARB extensions require NVIDIA GeForce 700 series or newer GPUs:
  • ARB_gpu_shader_int64
  • ARB_shader_clock
  • ARB_shader_ballot
  These new OpenGL 2015 ARB extensions require NVIDIA GeForce 400 series or newer GPUs:
  • ARB_ES3_2_compatibility
  • ARB_parallel_shader_compile
  • ARB_shader_atomic_counter_ops

Unreal Engine 4 Elemental DX12 Tech Demo Download

You can download the Unreal Engine 4 Elemental Tech Demo which is now is available from our servers in multiple locations. This is the latest revision that is DirectX 12 compatible.

This Unreal Engine 4 demo shows the engine's capabilities using DirectX 11 with demanding particle effects. Before running the demo you might have to install the (included) Microsoft Visual C++ Redist Runtimes.

Settings can be edited using the included batch file (e.g. ResolutionSizeX=1920; ResolutionSizeY=1080).

The newest UE4 version supports DirectX12, keep in mind that the dx12 is still in developmen

Thanks for the info. I've set the power management mode to prefer maximum performance, will see how it affects things.
