Vulkan Hardware Capability Viewer 2.01 released

Version 2.01 of the Vulkan Hardware Capability Viewer is now available for all platforms (Windows, Linux, Android).

This version has been updated to Vulkan Headers 1.1.123, adding support for all new extensions introduced with this header:

  • VK_KHR_shader_subgroup_extended_types

The main reason for this update is another one though, as it also fixes a bug for extension properties with array values not being properly saved to json and thus not being stored in the database.

For such extension properties, the value exported to the json file used to upload the report was empty with version 2.00:

1
2
3
4
5
    {
        "extension": "VK_EXT_sample_locations",
        "name": "maxSampleLocationGridSize",
        "value": ""
    }

Those values are now properly saved to the json file and imported into the database when uploading the report:

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
    {
        "extension": "VK_EXT_sample_locations",
        "name": "maxSampleLocationGridSize",
        "value": [
            1,
            1
        ]
    }

You can download the new version from here.

This version has also been published to Google Play, so you can easily install it from there and get automated updates if you already installed an older version from there.
