I play a few games with vulkan and it’s much smoother FPS but I don’t see much increase in FPS but it does run cooler and smoother no hitching or lock ups.

Oh yeah, performance stabilisation is entirely possible =) But some of these guys talk like they think it's going to upend the ecosystem and it.s just not. That's not how this stuff works lol Like I said before, went through this when Arma went to 64-bit. It made it more consistent, but nobody got a big boost out of it =)

Well vulkan is guaranteed to be better, how much better? Dont know but nvidia grafx cards can prolly expect less gains than an amd card, which is perfect since i ordered an rx 5700xt.

Imagine thinking that the most vocal guys in the community are the poors. Hundreds upon hundreds shout for ED to fix their game because they CAN'T get it to run properly in VR REGARDLESS of the hardware used.

There is no guarantee , only good chances.
I think that's why ED is keeping it low under radar.

It's almost like it's hot off the press (infamously taxing, in a game already known for being taxing) tech being rigged up on the fly in a game that wasn't originally designed for it, or dare I say it, even existed when said game was originally created. My original comment had nothing to do with VR, but good job taking it out of context anyway!

Smile New Vulkan Extensions Ship; Vulkan Sees Increased Usage by CAD and Professional Autho

The Vulkan ecosystem is seeing increased interest from CAD and professional authoring tool developers who wish to leverage Vulkan’s lower CPU overhead for increased performance, especially with large models. The Vulkan Working Group has just released the new VK_EXT_line_rasterization extension to support OpenGL-class line rendering, and developers are using Vulkan/OpenGL interop to migrate Vulkan functionality into OpenGL applications, including ray tracing. Desktop independent hardware vendors are offering middleware to make it easier for the CAD community to develop with Vulkan, including AMD’s V-EZ library for Vulkan graphics development on Windows and Linux.
