[AnandTech] NVIDIA Posts First DirectX 12 Ultimate Driver Set, Enables GPU Hardware Scheduling

Source: https://www.anandtech.com/show/15880...are-scheduling


Quote:
NVIDIA sends word this morning that the company has posted their first DirectX 12 Ultimate-compliant driver. Published as version 451.48 – the first driver out of NVIDIA’s new Release 450 driver branch – the new driver is the first release from the company to explicitly support the latest iteration of DirectX 12, enabling support for features such as DXR 1.1 ray tracing and tier 2 variable rate shading. As well, this driver also enables support for hardware accelerated GPU scheduling.

As a quick refresher, DirectX 12 Ultimate is Microsoft’s latest iteration of the DirectX 12 graphics API, with Microsoft using it to synchronize the state of the API between current-generation PCs and the forthcoming Xbox Series X console, as well as to set a well-defined feature baseline for future game development. Based around the capabilities of current generation GPUs (namely: NVIDIA Turing) and the Xbox Series X’s AMD RDNA2-derrived GPU, DirectX 12 Ultimate introduces several new GPU features under a new feature tier (12_2). This includes an updated version of DirectX’s ray tracing API, DXR 1.1, as well as tier 2 variable rate shading, mesh shaders, and sampler feedback. The software groundwork for this has been laid in the latest version of Windows 10, version 2004, and now is being enabled in GPU drivers for the first time.
Interesting, this should allow the GPU to directly manage memory along with reduce latency.

Pretty cool

I have a big bang house. I had all the materials for my new house brought in and dumped on a vacant lot. I took a stick of dynamite, lit the fuse on fire and tossed it into the pile of materials. BOOM went the explosion and when the dust settled I had a new house! Amazing isn't it?

Great! Will be on the lookout for a review reflecting performance changes, hopefully improvements.

Just installed these. need to test on some games etc.

EDIT: There's something wrong with Vulkan and mGPU in this driver - RDR2 just gives me a black screen. Disabling SLI/mGPU, however, makes it work.

Anyone else having issues with SLI/MGPU with these drivers?

All other games work fine though.

I don't think I am playing anything that uses DX12 right now, but I'm sure there will be something soon to try it out with. Is the scheduler a feature that needs to enabled by the developer in each game or does it work with anything using DX12?

There are no DX12 Ultimate games at the moment. It's like showing up early at the party and you are the only one there.

Can't be early if you are the host.

Can't be the host if you are setting up.

According to Microsoft themselves, the GPU scheduling feature allows a graphics card to directly manage its video memory, which in turn significantly improves performance of the minimum and average FPS and thereby, reducing latency. It works regardless of the API used for games and applications such as DirectX, Vulkan and OpenGL.


I wonder if this statement could be tested?

n here i just got done pushing new drivers thanks to detroit : become Woke

decent game, even if the initial loading period was a good 5 minutes long.

Add me on Steam, same name
R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
