    Re: DOOM gets Vulkan API support

    The guys over at Legit Reviews have done some quick testing of the Vulkan version of DOOM
    Unless I'm reading their article wrong, all they actually did was put AMD's internal testing results into a graph so they looked pretty - they didn't actually retest it themselves. Don't suppose Tarinder's got a spare five minutes over the next week or so...?

    Re: DOOM gets Vulkan API support

    Guru3d did a quick test to confirm the AMD results and compare to a 1070:

    Hint: nVidia need to do some work, assuming they even have anything in hardware that can benefit from Vulkan. Not that the results aren't still very fast in either mode, but there's no gain from Vulkan.

    About time this was released, pretty annoying that we have seen Vulkan benchmarks used in just about every piece of PR from the developers, yet the game has been out 2 months without Vulkan support.

    Re: DOOM gets Vulkan API support

    Just tried Vulkan on my 980ti. Massive artifacts. Took the OC off. Still artifacting.
    Have returned to OGL
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    Re: DOOM gets Vulkan API support

    The jump in AMD frame rates is about in line with "AMD OpenGL drivers suck" range.

    Still, it's a win so I'll take it. I wanted to play doom again anyway, I missed lots of secrets in the early part of the game before I learnt how to play it

    Re: DOOM gets Vulkan API support

    Of course I have to have the the 690 which doesn't work, hoping my 480 comes this week. Already have over 107hrs in to just the singleplayer, guess another playthrough can't hurt.

    Re: DOOM gets Vulkan API support

    Massive boost in perf for me, 70fps average is now 100fps average at 1440p

    R9 Fury and 5930k @4.1GHz.

    Re: DOOM gets Vulkan API support

    Just tested using my setup (system spec at side) and I have gone from dips to low 50's to nigh on 60 to dips into 60s and hitting 70s when a lot is going on ande have seen it as high as mid 80s.

    Looks like Vulkan is definitely a way forward with PC Gaming in the future

    Re: DOOM gets Vulkan API support

    Now there is Vulkan support, perhaps there might be a (small) chance of a Linux/Steam OS port.

    Re: DOOM gets Vulkan API support

    I've done a quick and dirty test myself.

    AMD Radeon RX 480 - 16.7.2 drivers. FRAPS doesn't work in Vulkan so I've benchmarked by pulling up the 'show performance metrics' in the advanced section, running around our map, and dividing the number of elapsed frames by the time to give an average FPS. The results may not be absolutely identical to what we've shown before - http://hexus.net/tech/news/graphics/...d-benchmarked/ - but they're consistent in themselves and actually very close to the OpenGL 4.3 you see on that page.

    OpenGL

    19x10 - 103.2fps
    25x14 - 66.8fps
    38x21 - 34.1fps

    Vulkan

    19x10 - 126.4fps (22.5 per cent uplift)
    25x14 - 80.3fps (20.2 per cent uplift)
    38x21 - 39.2fps (15.0 per cent uplift)

    Nice gains, huh?

    Sadly not.

    Should make the job of running it under Wine a lot easier though.
