What is Vulkan Rendering for?

Recommended Posts

i have tried the Vulkan Renderer, and it seems like it's just the OpenGL renderer with a new name, but i want to know what is so special about Vulkan Renderer?

As technology advances, we need new graphics APIs to handle the technology. Things may look the same visually but the code is extremely different. Vulkan could be considered a "OpenGL 5" (it's from Khronos Group who also did the OpenGL specifications), but as the API is completely new and shares no compatibility with GL, thus it's ultimately unrelated. GL itself is unlikely to see any further advancements as it functionally can't keep up anymore with new systems.
