Vulkan Hardware Capability Viewer 3.40 released

New client application

Version 3.40 of the Vulkan Hardware Capability Viewer is now available for all platforms (Windows, Linux, Android, Mac OSX). An update for the Google Play Android version should land soon.

New extensions

This version is based on Vulkan Headers 1.3.280 and adds support for the following new extension features and properties provided via VK_KHR_GET_PHYSICAL_DEVICE_PROPERTIES_2:

  • VK_EXT_map_memory_placed
  • VK_NV_shader_atomic_float16_vector
  • VK_NV_raw_access_chains
  • VK_NV_ray_tracing_validation

Other changes

  • Made some minor adjustments to the JSON output that should hopefully fix some wrongly reported format feature flags
    • JSON’s number type is limited to double, and some drivers reported numbers larger than that, resulting in wrong values stored to the database
    • To avoid this, those flags are now stored as string, avoiding any problems with conversion
  • Updated the LunarG Profiles library
