Written by Michael Larabel in Linux Gaming on 13 April 2016 at 11:17 AM EDT. 19 Comments
Croteam has published a new public beta this morning of The Talos Principle that improves the game's Vulkan API support.

Update 260210 is now in public beta and contains "improvements and optimizations" for the Vulkan API. There are also crash fixes when using the Xbox One controller with this game.

Early indications from the comments so far is that there are indeed some performance improvements to note with this latest TTP beta.

You can see some of our recent Talos Principle Vulkan benchmarks in Some Early Windows 10 vs. Ubuntu Linux Vulkan Tests With NVIDIA Graphics and Early Radeon Vulkan Windows vs. AMDGPU PRO Linux Benchmarks. If there is enough interest from Phoronix readers, I can carry out some fresh Vulkan Linux tests with today's Talos Principle update.
