Ubisoft testing Vulkan Graphics API and other big changes on R6 Test Server
Ubisoft released its first big round of patch notes for the Operation Shifting Tides Test Server (TS) today and Rainbow Six Siege players may experience a bit more than some recoil nerfs.
The developer will be testing out a new graphics application programming interface (API), according to TS patch notes released this morning.
The TS will veer away from DirectX for the beginning phase of the Test Server and will instead be using Vulkan.
This shift is basically meant to be less taxing on hardware overall and should bump frames per second (FPS) on most rigs. Ubisoft claims to be aware of a small portion of the community being unable to run Vulkan if their hardware is older.
Vulkan can also potentially cause issues with OSB, a popular streaming software that requires the program to be used in Window or Display Capture mode, according to Ubisoft.
Fans should download the latest drivers if they haven’t already. Ubisoft lists the newest drivers as AMD 19.11.1, Nvidia 441.20, and Intel 126.96.36.19972.
After an undisclosed amount of time, the devs will shift back to DirectX and compare the data gathered throughout the test period. DirectX will come back before the close of the TS period so that fans can also compare and share feedback.
Company of Heroes 2 is available for free on Steam until November 17th
