      Funny that there are specialized new extensions for better present stats (if I got that right), while it is obvious to the bare eye that amdvlk can't do fifo vsync properly under high GPU load circumstances.

        Please use neutral words for an international reader audience with words that are clear and unambiguous that precisely and accurately describes things and events instead of using synonyms. Write "released", not "christened".

          The word is fine. I don't see your issue.

            I really hope that they will eventually also add VK_EXT_fragment_shader_interlock to RADV.
            It is supposedly crucial for some emulators like PCSX2 and is only supported in Intel ANV.

              Although I'm not native English speaker, I don't see any problem to read text with synonyms. Moreover, I prefer to read text like this.

                "To christen" isn't as common verb as "to release", probably more common in religious scenarios as the most common translation in my language is "to baptize" instead of "to name/nominate"

                I know they have different semantical meanings, just my 2 cents

                  I personally think it's kinda unacceptable to publish a final specification with an extension lacking documentation when all the Vulkan spec actually is is documentation. Something seems off.

                    I totally agree.
                    And I'm also not a native english speaker. And to use words like "to christen" instead of "to release" is a bit of overkill.
