Futuremark Brings Vulkan API to 3DMark

Founded in 1997, Futuremark is a company that continuously develops one of the greatest benchmark tools for measuring performance of computer hardware and software. Formerly known as ORB (Online Result dataBase), Futuremark today owns the world’s largest and most comprehensive hardware performance database with over 50,000,000 available benchmark results, mixing thousands of different CPU’s, GPU’s and mobile devices. Until recently, it was impossible to offer apples-to-apples comparison between different devises as they all used different API (Application Programming Interface). Luckily, with the work of The KHRONOS Group, Vulkan API is now gaining in popularity. In order to keep with times, Futuremark added Vulkan support their 3DMark


CryEngine 5.3 is just around the corner

After an update on CryEngine roadmap we are revealing some interesting tidbits about their plans for the future of the CryEngine or, more importantly now in 5.3 patch which is scheduled to become available in mid-November. Biggest features coming to this particular iteration of the engine is definitely support for Vulkan graphics and rendering as well as physics, and support for Deprecate Lua and LLVM generated code helpers (C++ reflection). Also nice thing that caught our eyes is support for mobile GPUs via Vulkan. However their roadmap of course doesn’t stop there, it also looks ahead to tweaks in CryEngine 5.4 which is planned in

NVIDIA Releases First WHQL-Certified Vulkan Driver

UPDATE March 8, 02:32AM GMT – We learned from NVIDIA that customers might experience issues when installing the drivers. Use ‘clean’ install option, rather than ‘Express’ one. Just a few weeks ago, The Khronos Group released Vulkan API. When the API (Application Program Interface) launched, leading hardware vendors released their beta versions of drivers which support Vulkan API. NVIDIA is first out the door with the WHQL-certified driver. We received word from Brian Burke (Senior PR Manager, NVIDIA) that new GeForce driver v364.47 passed Microsoft validation and is available for download. The driver brings the following features: Game Ready – built in game profiles for ideal performance on
