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.
