The Vulkan 1.3 roadmap could change the very silicon it runs on

Cross-platform 3D graphics API Vulkan has just announced a much anticipated update. With Vulkan 1.3 available across the breadth of supported platforms, game developers can now enjoy a more streamlined experience, along with a bunch of highly-requested extensions coming integrated into the core API.

If you’re wondering what Vulkan is, it’s the only open standard modern GPU API around today, and essentially helps developers make 3D graphics more efficient so you get higher frames per second, although there’s more to it than just that.
