NVIDIA continue pushing out new builds to their special Vulkan Beta Driver, a staging area to test out new features. They've been running this special series now for a number of years, as they continue to keep up with the latest updates to the Vulkan API and their support of Linux with recent drivers has been great.
Today, version 435.27.02 for Linux was released (along with 436.59 for Windows). Here's the highlights of what's new and improved:
- Add HDR10 passthrough presentation format and color space for Windows 10 RS2+
- VkFormat - VK_FORMAT_A2B10G10R10_UNORM_PACK32
- VkColorSpaceKHR - VK_COLOR_SPACE_HDR10_ST2084_EXT
- Added support for the __GL_SYNC_DISPLAY_DEVICE environment variable for Linux Vulkan applications
- Improved bounds checking and stability for some content
- Improved unused memory reclamation when running low on system memory for Linux
- General performance improvements
You can find all the info and past changelogs for their special Vulkan Beta Driver on this page.
Eventually the changes from this branch go into their normal driver series, which also had an update with the 440.26 Beta driver about a week ago.
