| Vulkan® 1.2 driver available in latest AMD Radeon™ Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.1.2

We have just released our Vulkan® 1.2 driver as part of the official AMD Radeon™ Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.1.2. Vulkan 1.2 is a large update which promotes many extensions into core. Please check this list for all changes.

Here are the highlights:

  • Bindless is now in core! This is part of the descriptor indexing extension. You can read about it here and see a presentation on it here.
  • Imageless framebuffers. Often requested by developers, this allows applications to avoid creating images up front when creating a framebuffer. More details in the Vulkan specification.
  • Timeline semaphores for Direct3D®12 compatibility. You can read a blog post on it here.
  • 64-bit integer atomics.
  • 16-bit and 8-bit type support.



RenderDoc 1.8 has Compressonator support

When associated with DDS files, RenderDoc generates thumbnails for DDS formats and displays them in Windows Explorer. Compressonator Core provides functions for compressing and decompressing DDS files.

AGS 5.4.1 now available

AGS v5.4.1 now out, which includes GetWaveSize intrinsics as well as BaseInstance and BaseVertex for indirect drawing.
