Vulkan OoORasterization

Drivers, SDKs and Libraries


The Vulkan™ out-of-order rasterization sample shows how to use the out-of-order rasterization extension. It’s built on top of the Anvil framework, which simplifies the development of Vulkan applications. On GCN GPUs supporting the extension, you can toggle between relaxed and strict rasterization orders by pressing the space key. The background color will also change to indicate a mode switch.
