"Vulkan 1.1 and SPIR-V 1.3 are another step in providing better support for compute, as it adds subgroups, 16-bit numbers and a restricted form of pointers," said Vincent Hindriksen, managing director of StreamHPC. "Adding this to the strong industry support for Vulkan and the recently launched portability project, this allows more types of compute-kernels to be run on more platforms."
"In our non-gaming business, Vulkan 1.1 is a key factor for our success," said Norbert Nopper, founder of UX3D, "The possibility to utilize simultaneous rendering and multiple GPUs by default does help us to further optimize our engine."
"VeriSilicon has adopted the latest industry standard low-level GPU API Vulkan 1.1 and is committed to support Vulkan 1.1 across our OpenGL ES 3.1/3.2 class GPUs," said Wei-Jin Dai, executive vice president of VeriSilicon and general manager of VeriSilicon's IP Division. "We are glad to see the new functionalities of Vulkan 1.1 API, the multi-GPU support, the premium content protection, and the advanced compute functionality, etc. to unleash the tremendous potential for a new generation of Vulkan applications. We are particularly excited about the opportunities the Vulkan 1.1 brings to the automotive customers to have fine-grained control over graphics quality of service and highly desired security levels and features."
