AMD has released the latest version of the Radeon Software Adrenalin drivers. Version 21.6.2 beta supports real-time ray tracing in “DOOM Eternal”, the first game to implement Vulkan RT.
DOOM Eternal ™
Vulkan® ray tracing
Addition of Vulkan® support
This extension allows applications to specify a custom border color when the VK_SAMPLER_ADDRESS_MODE_CLAMP_TO_BORDER address mode is used.
This extension exposes the availability of the SPV_KHR_subgroup_uniform_control_flow SPIR-V extension for the use of shader modules. The SPIR-V extension provides stronger guarantees that divergent subgroups will reconverge.
This extension allows applications to selectively enable and disable writes for output color attachments through dynamic pipeline state. This has the potential to reduce the number of pipelines for increased efficiency.
