    According nvidia_icd_json_template shows this:

    { "fileformatversion" : "1.0.0", "ICD": { "library_path": "NV_VK_ICD", "api_version" : "1.1.84" } }

    Again no stream output support for turing for now aka Another Meh Driver TM

      Judging by the extensions reported through vulkaninfo is 415.18 on par with 396.54.06, which is also where 415.13 is.

        This driver seems to crash some Unity games with proton, I got the infamous
        Code:
        GetThreadContext failed
        error popup while trying to play "Ori and the blind forest".
        Now waiting a new fix from Nvidia, as well as the VK_EXT_Transform_Feedback extension support... The QA failed, and I'm not happy with this release

          the open-source samples from the NVIDIA DesignWorks team have seen plenty updates this week. Moved to imgui, improved vulkan support (no longer relying on the initial NV extensions). And there is also a new sample showcasing the "mesh shaders"

          unfortunately we haven't had time to fix/test the linux version of the framework, yet. But that will come at later time.
