    Just letting you know there is new Vulkan Beta Driver available for anyone wishing to test it.

    https://developer.nvidia.com/vulkan-driver

    July 9th, 2020 - Windows 451.74, Linux 450.56.01

    • New:
    • Fixes:
      • Make the pSizes parameters of vkCmdBindVertexBuffers2EXT be relative to the pBuffers+pOffsets
      • Fixed potential crash in the first vkQueuePresentKHR() call after creating a new VkSwapchainKHR with a non-NULL oldSwapchain
      • Fixed potential crash in vkCmdBeginRenderPass() when using VK_EXT_sample_locations

    i always had this question in my mind about these drivers:
    why choose this over the standard game ready drivers? what's the benefit of these over them?

    Does this incorporate all the fixes from the 451.67 driver or is this a different branch? Does it still support HAGS and WDDM 2.7?

    :mad:

    often WAY better than actual WHQLs. (probably cos these releases have had a different branch driver 'til today :()
    e.g. gpu video encoding/decoding RARELY broken compared to official ones :cool:

    When was video decoding/encoding ever broken? I use it regularly in mpv and obs-studio and it never was broken once.

    Does Detroit: Become Human crash with these drivers? Anyone tested the game?

    as I said: never happened to me since I stick with these drivers*, however just bump into a random WHQL thread and you'll often find at least one user posting "dxva (or such) ain't working" so I still avoid official releases, full stop

    * perhaps (once or twice) poor performance occured, in that case, downgrading did solve the issue.

    i think it has 451.67 fixes because premiere pro doesn't glitch out when using lumetri and re:vision plugins are working fine.

    more likely that it didn't include the broken change.

    Is Cemu using Vulkan working without issues for you? I suspect it's Kepler's Vulkan drivers not playing well with Cemu, but I just tried Cemu for the first time, and performance seems fine at first, but after a minute or so it starts heavily artifacting and eventually just crashes to the desktop. This would be the only time I can remember that I'd suffer from bad driver support during its lifetime.

    OpenGL worked fine for Cemu, but these shader compilation pauses are damn frustrating.

    There's something breaking Vulkan on emulators (Yuzu and Cemu) with this driver on Yuzu i had broken graphics, reverted to 451.67 and every went normal, i have a gtx 1070, so its not only Kepler's problem

    No issues here so far, CEMU plays fine on my end same with rpcs3 in vulkan mode, for yuzu i use opengl anyway, also a GTX 1070 user
