It seems to be a busy weekend! NVIDIA have put out a new version of their Vulkan beta driver and it's an interesting one.
Today, NVIDIA 415.22.05 became available and as expected of this driver series it adds in new Vulkan extensions. Specifically, it adds support for VK_KHR_depth_stencil_resolve, VK_EXT_buffer_device_address, VK_EXT_memory_budget, VK_EXT_memory_priority (only for Windows currently) and VK_EXT_pci_bus_info.
The extra interesting bit is the improvement they listed in this driver version. They mention that it has "Better pipeline creation performance when there is a cache hit" so it will be an interesting driver to test out. Good to see NVIDIA continue working on performance!
Find the driver info here.
For those on Ubuntu wishing to test out the beta driver, there is this PPA which sadly hasn't been updated since October last year. Hopefully they will get moving on that sometime soon. I'm unsure how other distributions handle beta drivers like this, hopefully they make it easy.
