Steam/vulkan-intel 21.1.0-1 questions

Ok I’m going to install Steam to play Hearts of Iron, my question is will vulkan-intel 21.1.0-1 give me better acceleration for games? I’m just using default kernel driver, i uninstalled xf86-video-intel. Everything is running smoothly, but I’m well aware that game require more juice lol. Thanks!

I’m using a Intel i7-10700 with the Intel UHD 630

Edit:Steam requires vulkan-driver. :thinking:

I think you wouldn’t be very successful playing the game without it. When you aren’t playing the game it isn’t being used.

I have no direct experience with Intel, however as always we can go to Requirements section, and see Intel part :upside_down_face:

Don’t forget to install other stuff, like Vulkan itself.

Other than that, you should be fine as long as dxvk works, and by default it should be

This is my CPU

So I’m assuming that its " Intel(R) UHD Graphics 630 (CFL GT2)" in that list?
So i need 1. vulkan-intel 21.1.0-1
2. lib32-vulkan-intel
That look right?

3. Install Vulkan


4. Install Vulkan driver for your GPU driver


Yes, no worries all modern hardware supports it, it’s mainly for an old ones :slight_smile:

vulkan-icd-loader - To my surprise was already installed :thinking:

sudo pacman -S lib32-vulkan-icd-loader - I get error: target not found: lib32-vulkan-icd-loader

sudo pacman -S lib32-vulkan-intel - error: target not found: lib32-vulkan-intel
“There is a lib32-vulkan-intel-noglvnd 18.3.2-1 in the AUR though”

Everything else went fine though.
