Graphics: Vega 10 On RadeonSI, Vulkan 1.0.62

Graphics/Benchmarks
  • Testing Primitive Binning With Vega 10 On RadeonSI

    One month back Marek Olšák landed support in the RadeonSI Gallium3D driver for primitive binning with Vega 10 GPUs but now that feature is likely to be disabled by default.

    Marek is moving ahead now to disable primitive binning by default for Vega 10 GPUs but to keep it enabled for upcoming Raven Ridge APUs. He explained in the proposed patch, "Our driver implementation is known to decrease performance for some tests, but we don't know if any apps and benchmarks (e.g. those tested by Phoronix) are affected. This disables the feature just to be safe."

  • Vulkan 1.0.62 Adds A New AMD Extension

    Vulkan 1.0.62 is now available as the latest updated specification for this high performance graphics and compute API.

    Vulkan 1.0.62 is mostly comprised of the usual documentation fixes and other clarifications. Nothing really too notable on that front with Vulkan 1.0.62.
