    • New:
    • Fixes:
      • Fixed a crash from vkCreateGraphicsPipelines when certain blend operations were used with scalar outputs from the fragment shader
      • Fixed the X driver's composition pipeline (used, e.g., for X desktop rotation, "ForceCompositionPipeline", and some OpenGL Swap Group configurations) to correctly preserve color precision in depth 30 [Linux]

    The download package for Windows 7 is again "Non 7z archive.". Not possible to install.
    Gurus at Nvidia developer site, please fix that.

    Vulkan Beta Driver Release Updates
    February 15th, 2021 - Windows 457.96, Linux 455.50.07


    • New:
    • Fixes:
      • Fixed handling of VK_DESCRIPTOR_BINDING_VARIABLE_DESCRIPTOR_COUNT_BIT for variable size descriptor bindings
      • Fixed the present tearing that occured in some situations [Windows]

    * branch ?

    https://developer.nvidia.com/vulkan-driver[/QUOTE]

    * In my Windows 7 system this driver seems to be problematic. Installer offers no option to reboot in the end (that's okay) and resolution is "VGA" at that point. A reboot makes my main monitor remain in standby. Windows desktop then only in my secondary monitor... Nvidia Inspector shows nothing but empty information. Performing a re-install and reboot didn't help. Going back to 457.91 fixed everything.

    March 4th, 2021 - Windows 458.06, Linux 455.50.10

    • Fixes:
      • Fixed an issue with vkCmdSetViewport when firstViewport is non-zero
      • Fixed a memory fault when using some smaller dimensions of sparse images
      • Fixed an issue where vkCreate{Graphics,Compute}Pipeline would sometimes crash when the shaders contained resources with no set/binding
      • Fixed corruption that sometimes occured with shadow rendering with image arrays
      • Fixed a bug with the host-visible device-local memory heap, where if an allocation failed due to space constraints, it could cause the application to crash on future Vulkan function calls
      • Fixed a potential crash when clearing images with multiple layers
      • Fixed a bug where using ray tracing extensions on multi-GPU setups could result in application instability if the GPUs did not match [Linux]
      • Fixed a bug where vkCreateSwapchain could cause the X Server to crash when an invalid imageFormat was provided [Linux]

    same branch as old one, crashes the same way and performance is marginally lower

    Nothing wrong with DCH and it's Microsoft/Windows DCH, not Nvidia's DCH.

    Can anyone elaborate if these are like standalone versions of nv drivers made specifically for vulkan based app\games and for example latest 466.11 possibly doesn't include some fixes and whatnot that are in that last April 13th, 2021 - Windows 458.17 driver?
    Or these are like just for developers working under vulkan api?
