    The Nvidia Vulkan development driver has been available for months but this particular driver revision for it was released just yesterday. :)

    As per the release notes it supports the new 1.0.54.0 Vulkan extensions (And includes said runtime version of Vulkan.) along with various smaller fixes. :)

    The Vulkan runtime and SDK release notes themselves can be found here:

    Would you recommend to install this driver ?
    I have the GTX 1080 ( Windows 10 x64 )
    What's the pros / cons vs. the nVidia driver ?
    Thank you

    This is more of a in-development driver for the latest Vulkan API changes and compatibility updates, for regular users you should probably stick with the release drivers (384.76 was it? Alternatively 384.81 hotfix for the Watch_Dogs 2 crash issue being resolved.) though nothing prevents you from giving these drivers a try, at worst you can just uninstall them and go back to the regular ones as these are a different branch mainly focused on Vulkan development of which there's like a handful or so games at best currently though other software (Including emulators.) also use the API a bit now. :)
