    Phoronix: RADV Now Supports Vulkan 1.0.39's VK_KHR_get_physical_device_properties2

    Mesa developers have been working on support for the new extensions of Vulkan 1.0.39 and the latest one to be wired up in Mesa Git is VK_KHR_get_physical_device_properties2 for RADV...

    I wonder if we will see RADV become feature complete before AMD open source their Vulkan driver. Hehe.

      Gotta love how you take digs at AMD for their not yet open sourced Vulkan driver. Ironic as where would Vulkan API be now without AMD Where's Nvidia's equivalent ? Don't see a dig at them for not ossing there stack.

        Michael bridgman doesn't AMDGPU-PRO follows a 3 months release cadence? So it seems hard to the driver be released in the same day as the vulkan spec's update

          We're aiming for a 2-month cadence in general (so 6 releases a year), tweaked as needed to align with new products & features.

            Alright to have a poke in fun. I prefer oss and was looking forward to seeing the official amd Vulkan driver released, but I know they are busy working on other stuff that takes priority. Its just nice to see radv progressing in the meantime.

              Maybe they should pause adding features and work on performance a bit. The number of linux vulkan applications doesn't seem to increase. On the other hand, performance is bad, very bad at this point.

                yep compared to AMDGPU PRO the RAD-V vulkan driver is very slow.
                And tbh the pro driver is also slow compared to the NVidia proprietary vulkan driver or compared to AMD windows vulkan.

                Basically a year after the release of vulkan; AMD users on Linux do not have a performant driver Which does justice to the hardware... this after being told that vulkan drivers would not become an obstacle the way openGL drivers did.

                  What are you talking about? DOOM and Talos runs at the same speed.
