Vulkan is a 3D graphics and compute API, like a way better OpenGL, released nearly 2 years ago.

Helio P10 (Mali T860) has Vulkan support.

Since android 7.0, there is Vulkan support in vanilla android: https://developer.android.com/about/versions/nougat/android-7.0.html#vulkan

Since the level 24 NDK comes with the Vulkan headers. https://developer.android.com/ndk/guides/graphics/index.html

It would be great, if you compile your new roms with Vulkan support switched on.

The successor to OpenGL. Much more emergent/elegant/efficient. So simpler to implement, yet more powerful.

See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vulkan_(API)

I wonder what this has to do with Blackview though. It’s the job of the GPU manufacturer, to provide such drivers. And of Android (Google) to provide the OS support.
