Vulkan Beta Driver 515.49.10 out now for Linux

By - | Views: 16,163

NVIDIA has released a fresh upgrade to their special developer-focused Vulkan Beta Drivers with version 515.49.10.

Here's all that's changed:

For the new Vulkan extension supported the description of it from the official docs reads:

VK_EXT_pipeline_robustness allows users to request robustness on a per-pipeline stage basis.

As robustBufferAccess and other robustness features may have an adverse effect on performance, this extension is designed to allow users to request robust behavior only where it may be needed.

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.

The newest stable versions of the main NVIDIA driver for Linux are at NVIDIA 515.57 released on June 28, 2022 from their "Production Branch" series or 495.46 released on December 13, 2021 from their "New Feature" series. Confused? It's a lot of numbers to remember but both Production and New Feature series are fine for normal use.

This works very well with a build of DXVK master. "Fixed issue with optimized graphics pipeline library final link using the wrong shaders" sounds like a fix for DXVK.
