One week after being first out the gate with a Vulkan driver for x86 Linux, NVIDIA has released an updated Vulkan graphics driver for Linux and Windows with a few more changes.

The original Vulkan driver release was in the 355.xx release stream and while this new driver is only marked as 355.00.28, it's a decent update for one week of changes.

This new NVIDIA 355.00.28 Vulkan driver update adds support for 64-bit vertex attribute formats, improves the performance of vkBindBufferMemory / vkBindImageMemory / vkCreateGraphicsPipelines operations, no longer enumerates Fermi-based GPUs in vkEnumeratePhysicalDevices, and supports newer versions of the Linux kernel.

You can download the updated NVIDIA Vulkan Linux driver at developer.nvidia.com.
