Arc A750-cannot play Vulkan games (?) properly

I played Sky on Steam and for some reason it keeps crashing with no warning during loading or when entering/entered Sky, was guessing it may be that for some reason Vulkan doesn't work properly even though it's supported on my A750 and maybe all Vulkan using games are not working properly? Guessing it because basically all DirectX using games work fine as much as I've tested after even reinstalling the Arc gpu drivers.

And well, if that's the case that Vulkan games don't work properly for some reason on Arc gpus then maybe in a new driver update there could be a fix for that issue?

Oh yeah, even the Google play games pc app games sometimes crash that way too with no warning just to let everyone know this.

Hello PINGAS7578, 


Thank you for posting in our communities.


To help me further identify the problem and offer you a solution, kindly provide the following details:


  • Was the game crashing the first time that you played it?
  • Except for updating the graphics driver, have you performed other troubleshooting steps? This is to prevent us from providing you with the same troubleshooting steps.
  • Please generate an SSU report to help me further analyze important details on your system, such as the OS build number, graphics driver version, errors logged in the system, etc. To generate the SSU report, please refer to the article How to get the Intel® System Support Utility Logs on Windows. Please send us the generated SSU.txt file.


We look forward to your response.



Best regards,

Hello

 

The game crashed constantly actually with no warning even after the first crash, but currently tested some games if they work as they should and results were that Sky Steam version crashed in 5 minutes, a Google play games game crashed in 15 minutes and for some reason Java Minecraft crashed in 40 minutes and made the system reboot back to the lock screen, but Bedrock edition Minecraft froze and re-entered Minecraft and then in 30 minutes nothing happened. Weirdly enough for some reason on my Ryzen 7600's iGPU Sky didn't at all crash after 5 minutes and ran fine. One friend thought it could possibly be the motherboard having bad traces to and from the GPU, but don't know exactly because of not having a test bench, which works always.

 

I did a stress test to the gpu for 5 minutes to see if there is some type of a issue and seemed nothing was wrong unless if mentioning that after a minute or two  during the stress test the GPU's temperature dropped from 71 degrees Celsius to 63 degrees Celsius and then went back to where it previously was before the stutter.

 

And I generated an SSU report too and added it to the reply, so hopefully the other information I gave too with this could be helpful.
