I'm pleased to announce support for Vulkan for Fedora!

== What is Vulkan? == Vulkan is a new generation graphics and compute API that provides high-
efficiency, cross-platform access to modern GPUs.

Or: Vulkan is to OpenGL as Wayland is to X11. It does many of the same
things, but - with the benefit of a few decades of experience - it's a much
better match for both the hardware it targets, and the
applications trying to use the hardware.

== How do I get it? ==

$ sudo dnf copr enable ajax/vulkan 

$ sudo dnf install vulkan anvil vkcube 

$ vulkaninfo 


Currently the repository includes the driver loader, as well as Intel's
open source drivers for gen8+ (Broadwell, Cherryview, Skylake, Broxton
and Kabylake) GPUs. The Intel drivers also have incomplete support for
Ivybridge, Haswell, and Baytrail devices; I can vouch that the
Ivybridge support is good enough to run the vkcube demo.

Package reviews have been created so this can all be integrated into the OS directly:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1308985 https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1308986

== What else can I do with it? ==

The Khronos group hosts a number of open source repositories related to
the Vulkan standard, including the specification and conformance test
suite:

https://github.com/KhronosGroup?utf8=%E2%9C%93&query=vulkan

A number of sample applications are available:

https://github.com/SaschaWillems/Vulkan https://github.com/McNopper/Vulkan

The API reference is available online:

https://www.khronos.org/registry/vulkan/specs/1.0/refguide/Vulkan-1.0-web.pdf
https://www.khronos.org/registry/vulkan/specs/1.0/apispec.html

Your favorite hardware driver or 3D game engine quite likely could use
help in enabling a Vulkan port, if you feel like getting your hands
dirty. The vulkan branch of Mesa would be a good place to start:

Cheguei a testar essa instalação no Fedora 23 mas não deu certo, ai mesmo aponta o hardware suportado, no caso estava usando provavelmente uma Radeon 6310 e drivers aberto só para ter certeza mesmo que não daria certo.

Pessoal que tem hardware compatível e drivers para isso aproveitem.

Tenho esperança de ter suporte no futuro para minha Radeon R7 250.

Estava navegando pelos tópicos e acabei lembrando de uma noticia boa: o driver amdgpu parece que estará disponível para as Radeons GCN de primeira e segunda gerações, é uma esperança para uma possível futura disponibilidade do Vulkan. Parece que será possível testar o amdgpu nessas GCNs a partir do kernel 4.9.
