    Sorry, I didn't mean to upset the Trekkies but I just didn't get it until it was pointed out. I always understood that Vulcan's are a fictional race of aliens. And I never could get my fingers to do what Leonard Nemoy could do. Obviously he set the example of what a Vulcan is.... But I had no idea that's what was being referenced until it was pointed out.

    However, you can obviously see how an observer without prior understanding might get confused with the screenshot actually having a Vulkan symbol in it.

    most likely yes, it is wrong.
    There'd be no way to move the engine to Vulkan in 5 minutes...

    LOL

    On a serious note I really hope the first couple of games (DOTA2 and Talos Principle) are outstanding implementations which show off performance improvements on both Linux and windows. Important for PR.

    It a joke, now they might add vulkan api that's not the joke it's the screenshot that shows a vulcan looking robot doing the Vulcan salute with an vulkan logo on the chest.
    Vulcan isn't Vulkan.
    Is there really that many that never seen Star Trek?
    I like the humor.

    It's wrong.

    It was a joke - they added a "Vulcan" to their scene. Still rendered in OpenGL.

    I suspect Michael didn't get it either. Sigh.
