Lastest Intel Vulkan driver doesn't detail driver version in driverInfo field

We often need to detect the driver and report the driver when there are crashes.  VkPhysicalDeviceProperties.driverVersion which has no correlation with the actual release version numbers. 

So VkPhysicalDeviceVulkan12Properties has fields to provide more data.  In particular we can obtain the release version of the driver and correlate this with actually releases that users see from this data, except on Intel platforms.

 

Here's what Intel's driver provides.


DriverID: 0x00000005
DriverName: Intel Corporation
DriverInfo: Intel driver <- this isn't helpful

 

And here's what Nvidia/AMD provide.  Only providing Nvidia output

DriverID: 0x00000004
DriverName: NVIDIA
DriverInfo: 535.98

 

AMD is something like this

DriverInfo:  23.4.2

 

Can the driver be updated to provide the driver version corresponding with it's release?  I don't care about the other fields really, those can remain.

 

DriverInfo: 26.20.100.7755

Hello Alecazam,

 

Thank you for posting on the Intel️® communities. We would be more than glad to help you with your issue.

 

To better assist you on this matter, we would like to request the following information:

  • We understand that you need to detect the driver and report the driver when there are crashes. However, we would like to know if you require this information because you are debugging a work project (application or game).
  • Share with us which Intel Graphics product you have confirmed that presents this problem.
  • You provided information from the driver. Does this mean that you are currently using the driver version 26.20.100.7755?
  • If it is possible, we would like to ask for more system information. Please, create a system report using the Intel System Support Utility (Intel SSU)
    • Download the Intel SSU
    • Open the application and click "Scan" to see the system and device information. By default, Intel SSU will take you to the "Summary View."
    • Click on the menu where it says: "Summary" to change it to "Detailed View."
    • To save your scan: click "Next"; then "Save."
