NVIDIA have again pushed out a brand new Vulkan beta driver, with version 418.31.03 now available with game fixes and new extensions.

As a reminder, these drivers are a special series all by themselves, done outside of their normal driver series to test new features, new API extensions and other interesting stuff.

Here's whats new and changed in this release:

It's good to see NVIDIA act so quickly to help improve Linux gaming, also interesting to see drivers get special adjustments just for projects like DXVK. Not surprising though, since it's included in Valve's Steam Play. The more games playable on Linux, the wider the testing area they have.

See the full info on the NVIDIA website.

Hat tip to Jack!

Blaster-PRwhere is the ppa for this we need one!
Sadly, it seems the original Ubuntu PPA for these drivers hasn't been updated in some time.

You have the wrong link it's /ppa not /dev
Last update was 4 days ago for version 4.15.27

https://launchpad.net/~graphics-drivers/+archive/ubuntu/ppa
Wrong, that is the normal PPA.

@TheDaftRick your link is the stable PPA, so that doesn't include beta for Vulkan testing, that's why liamdawe said yours is the wrong one

At least, the normal PPA is still active...

kaymioWhy is there no official Linux port of Hitman 2?

Vortex_AcheronticFixes for HITMAN 2?
I played the whole game with Proton and didn't noticed any issues. What was wrong? o.o

i guess this is why. this game runs pretty good with proton and some linux users already played it
same with life is strange 2.
less money for feral

feral should focus on unplayable games like online games (or Hitman: Absolution) and action games where you need more FPS... like shadow of war

I probably shouldn't share this ... but:

So, we have game-specific (well, even game-under-Proton/DXVK-specific) fixes and tweaks in proprietary drivers for Linux.

Ah, my bad. I assumed /ppa was just continued from /dev once they sorted things out.

According nvidia json file:

{ "fileformat_version" : "1.0.0", "ICD": { "library_path": "NV_VK_ICD_", "api_version" : "1.1.99" } }

Is this Yakuza 0 or Yakuza Kiwami?

I know Yakuza 0 works via SteamPlay / DXVK, but Kiwami got released yesterday and I'm curious if it works as well (there are no reports on ProtonDB yet).

Again, like the other link someone gave, this is not the correct one. The one I linked to in my first comment is the correct one, but it's not being updated.
