NVIDIA Vulkan Driver Shows Impressive Mad Max Linux Performance
For those curious about 4K gaming with Mad Max, the NVIDIA Vulkan driver makes the game much more playable:
Across the board the NVIDIA Vulkan results were much better than the NVIDIA OpenGL performance for the Mad Max Linux port by Feral Interactive. These results are great to see and show the potential for Vulkan, particularly for games/workloads where the games can do much better when properly multi-threaded. I'll have more Mad Max OpenGL vs. Vulkan results on Friday.
