NVIDIA have pushed out a fresh update to their developer-focused Vulkan Beta Driver series, here's the highlights and what's changed.
For starters it's now been rebased on top of their mainline 455 driver branch, which brings with it Ampere 30xx series support. So for anyone truly needing this series for all the brand-new Vulkan extensions and other Beta features, you should be good to go.
Other than that, here's what's changed in 455.22.04:
You can find the Vulkan Beta Driver here.
Reminder: This special Vulkan beta driver is where all the shiny new stuff goes in before making its way into the stable release for everyone. Really, it's mostly aimed at developers and serious enthusiasts. Unless you need what's in them, it's generally best to use the stable drivers.
Not to be confused also with the 455.23.04 driver release that went out on September 17, which was a Beta version of their main series that released along with Ampere to support the new GPUs. The newest stable version of the main NVIDIA driver for Linux is at 450.80.02 which released today too which added support for the GeForce MX450 and DGX Display.
