Windows driver version 383.18 and Linux driver version 381.26.20 provide new features for Vulkan developers to test their upcoming Vulkan applications.
September 28th, 2017 - Windows 383.18, Linux 381.26.20
Full-screen flipping for Linux Improved performance of fullscreen Vulkan applications using X11 swapchains. This optimization will cause more events that trigger an out-of-date swapchain, such as when entering or leaving fullscreen mode. This is commonly encountered when using the alt-tab key combination, for example. Applications that do not properly respond to the VK_ERROR_OUT_OF_DATE_KHR return code may not function properly when these events occur. See section 30.8 of the Vulkan specification. Known issue with Quadro and non-composited desktops under some situations. Possible workarounds: Disable flipping in nvidia-settings (uncheck "Allow Flipping" in the "OpenGL Settings" panel) Disable UBB (run 'nvidia-xconfig --no-ubb') Use a composited desktop Bug fixes NVX_multiview_per_view_attributes and geometry passthrough shaders Fix subpass dstSubpass=VK_SUBPASS_EXTERNAL handling Fix vkRegisterObjectsNVX and VK_EXT_sample_ Fix handling of SPIR-V SSBO layout qualifiers on members Fix atomic operations on some 64-bit types
