Bethesda and id Software have announced the PC version of Doom now supports Vulkan, and with it, brings even more speed and features to the game.
Vulkan is a cutting-edge next-gen graphics and compute API developed by the Khronos Group. The way it works is it allows very low-level access to a PC’s hardware and moves the majority of the driver overhead into the developer’s hands.
id Software anticipates some older GPUs will now be able to play Doom at more acceptable frame rates. The studio also hopes the range of GUP support becomes wider now that Vulkan is supported.
