Vulkan Hardware Capability Viewer 3.29 released

New client application

Version 3.29 of the Vulkan Hardware Capability Viewer is now available for all platforms (Windows, Linux, Android, Mac OSX). An update for the slightly outdated Google Playstore is also pending and should be live soon.

New extensions

This version has been updated to Vulkan Headers 1.3.243 adding support for reading new features and properties provided via VK_KHR_GET_PHYSICAL_DEVICE_PROPERTIES_2 for the following extensions:

  • VK_ARM_shader_core_properties
  • VK_EXT_image_sliced_view_of_3d
  • VK_EXT_pipeline_library_group_handles
  • VK_QCOM_multiview_per_view_render_areas

Other changes

The new version also includes a usability improvement for filtering data. Up until now, the filter term was also applied to child entries. So filtering for an extension name would unfortunately also filter the properties of that extension:

With this update I have reworked how filtering is done by overriding Qt’s default model filtering so that child entries will be preserved when filtering for a given term:

This is similar to how the database works and should make filtering in the client application more useful.
