The growth of NVK in such a short time is insane!

I've ran some benchmarks (which I can't post since they're on Peertube) and OW2 gets to 100+ FPS in some areas. This is without this MR, which introduces Vulkan 1.1 proper which means DXVK versions up to 1.10.3 will work out of the box after this is merged. I want to remind everyone that the first news that NVK is a thing was last March If I remember correctly. Fast forward 8 months and the progress is staggering. This time next year, we may even be able to play with full FOSS Nvidia drivers on Linux along with FSR 3.0 for upscaling. Not to mention that everything else works amazingly on Nouveau+NVK, from Plasma 6 to Sleep to VRR, the FOSS devs have made insane progress in such a short notice. The only thing that does not seem to be working so far is HDR in Plasma 6 but I'm sure the Plasma devs will look into it soon enough.

 

I am just so excited, so many good things are happening in light speed that I can't even keep up! :)

Which GPU were you using?

 

NVK seems nice but not that useful for me since the main reason I use nvidia is CUDA, still nice nonetheless 😛

Those are not acronyms lol

NVK = new open source userland nvidia vulkan driver on linux

DXVK = piece of middleware that translates directx on top of vulkan

nouveau = open source kernel nvidia driver

I have a 4090M. Most games freeze (including OW) but with this new MR I'm very hopeful things will work better. Still I did a stream of FF II on DXVK and it ran flawlessly for like 2 hours. Playing some more today. 🙂

Just found your videos, there were lots of stutters, but it's indeed promising for such new piece of software. Can't wait for them to enable it for other GPUs as well.

I'm just saying, if you want folks to understand what you're getting at, use a full word before and then refer to it as the acronym.  Cuz it's difficult without going out to google what you're talking about.

 

NVK is indeed an acronym it is Nvidia Vulkan Kernel or Nouvea Vulkan Kernel or something, no?

 

DXVK is DirectX Vulkan Kernel I assume?

Nope, nvk is nvk, and that's it. It's a play on the acronyms for nvidia and vulkan (nv and vk), but it's not an acronym by itself.

Nope, just a play on the acronyms for directx and vulkan, but the actual name of the piece of software is dxvk.

I'm a software developer and even I didn't realize that MR meant "merge request." We always use PR (Pull Request) instead, which is what GitHub calls it as well.

 

That might be partly because we're coding for an industry where MR refers to "Make Ready" - which is the time and scrap used to prepare a machine. It could be very confusing if we were messaging back and forth about MR for a fix that dealt with "Make Ready."

Yeah, as I said, MR is really gitlab specific, so if haven't used it it's fair to now be aware of (although IMO it makes more sense than PR, since you're doing a merge and not a pull lol)

I just played the whole first mission of Halo Reach on Enhanced Graphics with Proton 7 and got 80 FPS Average. Insane.
