Title: Intel HD Graphics Driver 20.19.15.4473 Vulkan
Post by: Stefan on June 30, 2016, 09:14:11 PM
This driver (http://www.station-drivers.com/index.php?option=com_remository&Itemid=352&func=fileinfo&id=2301&lang=fr) supports Vulkan, officially only for Skylake

+ Vulkan device name recognition has been fixed
- Vulkan API version is reported as 1.0.0

Seascape demo in GPUCapsViewer crashes with Broadwell (using modified driver).
Can s.o. check with Skylake?

NB: comes with old OpenGL driver without Doom 2016 support

Dota 2 (http://store.steampowered.com/news/22000/) runs (or crawls) with this driver, v4404 crashed after a second in game
 
You can check if Vulkan renderer is active in VConsole2 coming with DOTA 2

official driver download:
NEW- Intel® Graphics Test Driver for Windows® 10 and Windows 7*/8.1* [15.40.4473] (https://software.intel.com/en-us/blogs/2016/06/29/new-intel-graphics-test-driverdriver-for-windows-10-and-windows-781-15404473)

Regarding API 1.0.0 report:
Github samples (https://github.com/GameTechDev/IntroductionToVulkan/commit/bb53abad143d70d7fb63b94415b39126cc6e99d8) "Replaced deprecated VK_API_VERSION definition with VK_MAKE_VERSION()  macro" which is 1.0.0
I guess they did the same thing in the driver?

All Caps Viewer Vk demos crash on Skylake 6600 HD530, although Vk version 1.0.0 is recognized. Tried Intel drivers: 15.4404, 15.4464, 15.4473, 15.4474. Stardust demo and spinning cube from Lunar SDK work fine.
