Steam Client Now Stable With Better AMD Vulkan Performance
Valve released a stable Steam client update on Friday evening with all of the changes we've been seeing from the frequent beta releases.
First and foremost there is the Steam overlay fix for Vulkan games, which primarily benefits the AMD graphics driver stack. Yesterday I posted some benchmarks showing the performance impact for AMDGPU-PRO of this Vulkan fix.
On the Vulkan front there is also improved performance and lower latency when streaming Vulkan applications.
This stable Steam client update also has a Linux/SteamOS fix of the incorrect mouse cursor being displayed and fixing the client not being able to launch if the Steam Runtime was disabled by the user. There are also a number of Steam VR fixes/improvements, fixes for the Steam Controller, Big Picture fixes, and other general improvements.
