With the release of Vulkan 1.3, NVIDIA announced day one driver support for the cross-platform GPU application programming interface for 3D graphics and computing.
NVIDIA is providing immediate full functionality for Vulkan 1.3 drivers on Windows and Linux, including popular distributions like Ubuntu, Kylin and RHEL. NVIDIA Nsight Graphics and Nsight Systems tools have been updated to support Vulkan 1.3, offering a robust environment with deep support for developers to build and optimize Vulkan games and applications.
“NVIDIA has consistently been at the forefront of computer graphics with new, enhanced tools, and technologies for developers to create rich game experiences,” said Jon Peddie, president of Jon Peddie Research.
The Vulkan API has less latency and overhead than alternatives, such as OpenGL or older versions of Direct3D and this day one support continues NVIDIA’s track record of being among the first to guide and advance its development.
