Vulkan Hardware Capability Viewer 1.93 released

Version 1.93 of the Vulkan Hardware Capability Viewer is now available for all platforms (Windows, Linux, Android).

This version fully supports Vulkan 1.1 and adds support for reading additional features and properties for the following extensions:

  • VK_EXT_fragment_shader_interlock
  • VK_NV_shader_sm_builtins
  • VK_KHR_depth_stencil_resolve properties
  • VK_EXT_buffer_device_address features
  • VK_EXT_pci_bus_info features

In addition there were also a few changes to the Android version of the app:

The app is now using the arm64-v8a architecture, as this is a requirement for distributing Android apps in Google’s playstore beginngin this August. This means that if you’re still on a device that doesn’t support 64-bit on Android you won’t be able to install or upgrade to this version.

I have also spent some hours on improving the UI and UX for Android users. As the app is using Qt widgets, and not Android’s native UI, it always feelt a bit clunky to use on mobiles but I did a few changes to make it more comfortable for mobile users. Starting with this new version you can select the view via a drop down that’s much easier to use and touch scrolling for all tables has also been reworked to make it feel more natural.

You can download the new version from

This version has also been published to Google Play, so you can easily install it from there and get automated updates if you already installed an older version from there.
