NVIDIA Vulkan developer driver 383.18
« on: September 29, 2017, 07:51:03 AM »
  Windows driver version 383.18 and Linux driver version 381.26.20 provide new features for Vulkan developers to test their upcoming Vulkan applications.



 Windows 383.18
  Linux 381.26.20
  Release Updates   September 28th, 2017 - Windows 383.18, Linux 381.26.20
 
  • Full-screen flipping for Linux
    • Improved performance of fullscreen Vulkan applications using X11 swapchains. This optimization will cause more events that trigger an out-of-date swapchain, such as when entering or leaving fullscreen mode. This is commonly encountered when using the alt-tab key combination, for example. Applications that do not properly respond to the VK_ERROR_OUT_OF_DATE_KHR return code may not function properly when these events occur. See section 30.8 of the Vulkan specification.
    • Known issue with Quadro and non-composited desktops under some situations. Possible workarounds:
      • Disable flipping in nvidia-settings (uncheck "Allow Flipping" in the "OpenGL Settings" panel)
      • Disable UBB (run 'nvidia-xconfig --no-ubb')
      • Use a composited desktop
  • Bug fixes
    • NVX_multiview_per_view_attributes and geometry passthrough shaders
    • Fix subpass dstSubpass=VK_SUBPASS_EXTERNAL handling
    • Fix vkRegisterObjectsNVX and VK_EXT_sample_
    • Fix handling of SPIR-V SSBO layout qualifiers on members
    • Fix atomic operations on some 64-bit types
