  • Vulkan 1.1
    This driver release provides full support for the new Vulkan 1.1 API and passes the Vulkan Conformance Test Suite (CTS) version
    Includes interoperability with CUDA 10.0.
    New extensions for Turing GPUs:

    • VK_NVX_raytracing (also available for Pascal GP Us with 8GB or more video memory, and Volta GPUs)
    • VK_NV_compute_shader_derivatives
    • VK_NV_corner_sampled_image
    • VK_NV_fragment_shader_barycentric

    • VK_NV_scissor_exclusive
    • VK_NV_shader_image_footprint
    • VK_NV_shading_rate_image

    See for the full specification.

  • Vulkan HDR for Windows
    This driver release supports the Vulkan VK_EXT_swapchain_colorspace and VK_EXT_hdr_metadata extensions allowing applications output HDR content to HDR displays via the Vulkan APIs
  • OpenGL extensions for Turing GPUs
    • GL_NV_compute_shader_derivatives
    • GL_NV_fragment_shader_barycentric
    • GL_NV_mesh_shader
    • GL_NV_representative_fragment_test
    • GL_NV_scissor_exclusive
    • GL_NV_shading_rate_image
    • GL_NV_shader_texture_footprint

    See for the full specification

  • NVIDIA Control Panel
    System Info shows Boost Clock values ​​(instead of Base Clock) for Turing and later GPUs.
