id Software also claimed that developers should adopt Vulkan as soon as possible.
“There is definitely a learning curve, but the benefits are obvious.” said Axel Gnetting and continued.
“Vulkan actually has pretty decent tools support with RenderDoc already and the debugging layers are really useful by now. The big benefit of Vulkan is that shader compiler, debug layers and RenderDoc are all open source. Additionally, it has full support for Windows 7, so there is no downside in OS support either compared to DX12.”
