    Thanks kenjitamura. Isn't another advantage of Vulkan (probably one of the biggest) is that it's OS agnostic?
    Just my opinion. I think its biggest advantage is that Vulkan is designed closer to how modern GPU's actually work. Back in the "olden" days GPU's were fixed function accelerators. OpenGL is designed for that type of hardware. Modern GPU's are highly parallel Scalar processors. That is the reason why OpenGL requires more effort from the driver developers. And why Vulkan allows game engine developers to implement functionality instead of the driver developers.

    Well, so was OpenGL.

A game can support both Vulkan and OpenGL and there are even people looking into providing OpenGL support through Vulkan with another abstraction layer.

    OpenGL is less explicit and requires less coding from the developers and more coding from the hardware driver vendors.

    Please excuse my ignorance, but isn't Vulkan the next generation OpenGL? Is it incorrect to say Vulkan is equivalent to OpenGL? And vice-versa? To be more specific, can a game support both Vulkan and OpenGL? I just want to get the terminology correct, not trying to nit-pick at all.

    "It" was referring to UE4. Thanks.

    all Unreal 4 games support -opengl and -opengl4 parameters even on Windows. it is just that by default DX is used and most games don't really ask. well, unless dev modified Unreal source to the point where he make that non working
