Welcome to the last blog post in the series! You might notice that it’s a bit late – this has been sitting mostly complete on my account for months, but with the Vulkan release taking up a lot of my time, I’m afraid it got neglected! Well, finally we’ll be looking at why Vulkan is a better fit to hardware than previous generation APIs, and I’ll be

It’s been a while since we first showed off our Vulkan* driver for PowerVR Rogue GPUs. Since then, our PowerVR driver and graphics demo teams have been working hard to synchronize with the spec as it evolves towards its final form. Today we are excited to show you a new demo we have been working on that better highlights the
