How about some better performance for emulating the PlayStation 2? That's what you're going to get with Vulkan support now hooked up nicely in PCSX2.
Writing on Twitter the official account said: "A lot of people were asking for a Vulkan renderer and courtesy of Stenzek (Duckstation) it is finally here! It performs better than OpenGL in a lot of cases on similar blending levels so it should make a couple of harder to run games much easier to play! Thanks Sten!". They also included this screenshot:
The work done by Connor 'stenzek' McLaughlin (known for the likes of the DuckStation PS1 emulator) can be seen in the merged Pull Request on GitHub. Speed and future-proofing are the obvious reasons for doing it, noting that it's much faster for both AMD and NVIDIA. Since the code is merged already, you can try it out in their development builds.
Nice to see more emulators keep getting better, they're really important for preservation.
