Vulkan support on moto g4 plus

2016-06-26, 6:15 AM

Will Vulkan API get supported on moto g4 plus with android N.

Please bring it. It will improve performance, reduces battery drain and also reduces heating while extended gaming also.

Hope motorola or lenovo colaborate with qualcomm to bring the driver support as qualcomm said adreno 4xx will get vulkan support. So please bring it to adreno 405 also

Vulkan API is currently only available on the latest GPU from snapdragon(Adreno 530).Also vulkan support comes with the nougat update and it is baked right into the OS.Demanding vulkan support for any phone isnt the right way.

Qualcomm has released support to 4xx series recently and also vulkan is not compulsory for nougat. To pass Google CTS  either vulkan or opengl es 3.1 is needed . Remember Nexus 9 doesn't have vulkan

Be patient and wait for the nougat update.Stop demanding support for each and every feature you find.Moto cannot just roll out an update with vulkan just bcos of a group of users complaining.GPUs are one of the most complex parts in smartphones.It needs extensive development and work just to release an update even to optimise it.

I have no problem to when nougat will roll out may it be in Jan or Feb 

Our phone won't get Google daydream and I know that I have never asked for it and if we don't get even vulkan what is the use of nougat .

Without vulkan there will be no significant performance improvement in gaming.

If there is no performance improving then nougat update will be nothing more than merely a UI change (ie multi window kind stuff). 

What is the use of the os update with just JIT compiler (only thing that improves performance).

What's wrong in asking a feature that is supported in the os and the phone.

 

 

I appreciate Motorola for giving budget phones such importance

 If it is feasible then developers will give us the support or else no there is nothing wrong in asking for it .

 

And once again I appreciate Motorola for giving budget phones such importance. And I have no problem on when the update releases

When moto releases nougat,they will state if they had included vulcan support or not along with the update.And dont expect with the vulkan experience you get on high end phones(like galaxy s7) on the budget moto g4 plus.If you were so interested in gfx,you cold have gone with higher end phones instead of asking for vulkan support on a budget handset.

I am not expecting any thing but at the same time  there is nothing wrong in asking when Google itself is giving it in os

Didnt you know that google introduced the API in nougat?It comes bundled with the OS.If your device is compatible and if your GPU meets the requirements,your phone will have it with the nougat update.Go and do some research for yourself before posting.
