You can find the driver here.

Changelog:
- Updated Vulkan API to 1.0.8
- Improve pipeline creation performance and multi-threaded scaling
- Increase our maximum bound descriptor sets from 4 to 8
- Add support for asynchronous transfer queue
- Improve VK_EXT_debug_report messages on incorrect API usage and shader compile failure
- Fix VkImageFormatProperties maxMipLevels property
- Reduce VkPhysicalDeviceLimits bufferImageGranularity requirement on GM20x GPUs
- Improve Vulkan support on Optimus platforms
- Fixes for minor driver and SPIR-V compiler bugs

Fast response from Nvidia, 1.0.8 was just released a week ago!

This is fast as hell. I can only dream AMD supporting like this on Linux.

In the graphics-drivers PPA I'm seeing that the version is 364.15, updated 3 hours ago (at the time of writing this comment), not 364.16. Can I expect it to be the same driver anyway?

I doubt it. The graphics-drivers PPA is usually a day or two behind, it will probably be up on Monday. 346.16 is so new it's not even listed on Nvidia's own downloads page yet, 346.15 is still the most current on that page.

I'm getting the general impression that Vulkan must genuinely be fairly clean and simple, thus easy to make the drivers, since overall it seems like development of this stuff is happening faster than I was really expecting.

How is the performance on Shadow of Mordor? the last driver I tried gave me floating heads.

That is the stable driver, this is more bleeding edge.

works like a charm ^^. I cant tell if Im just "getting better" or if there drivers are less buggy.
But I'v always installed nvidia drivers via ppa. I find it less buggy and its simpler that way.
But I wanted to try it with a run file, in tty, by myself this time. And it works .
