Hello, will there be Vulkan API support for 5th gen drivers?

Recently bought No Man's Sky and had NO idea about the vulkan switch, now I'm stuck with an unplayable game due to my driver. I use a laptop so there's no upgrading anytime soon.

Unfortunately Intel decided 3 years ago not to support Vulkan for 5th gen or older.

 

Review previous discussions about that.

Hello NAbad2,

 

Thank you for posting on this Intel Community.

 

To verify the APIs supported by your Intel® Graphics Controller, please refer to the Supported APIs for Intel® Graphics Controllers article. In this link, you can find tables with the APIs and versions (OpenGL*, Vulkan*, etc.) supported by each platform.

 

To better assist you, please provide your Intel® Processor model number to identify your Intel® Graphics Controller.
