New Update For DOOM Adds Vulkan Support

New Update For DOOM Adds Vulkan Support

id Software has announced the availability for the Vulkan™ version of DOOM that relies on innovative features to deliver incredible performance.

As you may already know, the Vulkan™ API is a descendant of AMD’s Mantle that supports close-to-metal control across Windows® 7, Windows® 8.1, Windows® 10, and Linux®. Compared to OpenGL, Vulkan™ substantially reduces “API overhead” – the background work a CPU does to interpret what a game asks of the hardware – to deliver meaningful features, performance, and image quality and expose GPU hardware features that wouldn’t ordinarily be accessible through OpenGL.

DOOM benefits from Vulkan support by using several great features:

Here are a couple of performance figures at first glance:

We applaud id Software and Bethesda for making the leap to the brave new world of low-overhead APIs. The numbers highly recommend testing out the benefits of Vulkan over OpenGL on Radeon graphics cards – for more information on the above features and the Vulkan version of DOOM, please visit:
