    Shouldn't it be "extension"?

      No Turing support on the Vulcan Beta yet.

        I don't get it, does the Vulkan driver get slower merely because the transport feedback is supported or only if it's actually used by the application? Does it have to be enabled by the app?

          Should only get slower if the extension is used (other than maybe tiny impact from extending switch statements etc..)... the problem is that since most other APIs besides Vulkan support this kind of functionality you need something similar in Vulkan if you want to easily host those other APIs on Vulkan.

          Good writeup from Jason Ekstrand here:

            It is nice to see the industry converging to Vulkan, but there is still one elephant in the room, how is multi gpu (in NVIDIA's case bumblebee) support coming along?

              Edit: Nevermind, I misread.
