    Phoronix: A NVIDIA Engineer In His Spare Time Wrote A Vulkan Driver That Works On Older Raspberry Pi

    The Raspberry Pi 1 through Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ and even the Raspberry Pi Zero can now see Vulkan support via a new unofficial "RPi-VK-Driver" that is offering even better performance than the Broadcom OpenGL driver...

    That is really cool.

    I remember running standard Quake III on my Pi 3 and it was ~20 FPS. This looks to make a big difference!
    I know there is a large amount of people on i.e the raspbian forums wanting to get Quake III running faster and this should solve that

      Now it is time to push emulators to use this vulkan driver for better performance.

                Amazing! It also shows that there are some briliant software engieers at nVidia who are handicapped in what they can do.

                Searching for UNSUPPORTED in the git repository, there are not too many instances. I wonder if software implementations can be provided for these and then we can move on to the next step for Vulkan domination.

                    So I think it's 720p resolution. Right?
