When I open gpu-z vulkan isn’t checked. Do I have to install some drivers to get it to work or what am I supposed to do?
Well, you need just your usual NV drivers installed. Not sure how GPU-Z works. It might be confused by the switchable nonsense on notebooks…
I did that and ran The demis that come with The SDK and IT says that no supported device has been found.
I also have an RTX 2060 mobile and can confirm Vulkan works fine (I’ve been playing RDR2 on the thing in the default Vulkan renderer for months)
One caveat I did notice: When I was playing with my OpenGL stuff on the same PC, it wouldn’t run in GPU accelerated mode by default, as if it didn’t recognize the app as a game that required the acceleration. I had to go into the NVidia settings program and explicitly tell it that my game engine program should be run only with the real GPU. I’ve never used GPU-Z but you may need to do something similar if you’re trying to develop a Vulkan app; setting that for GPU-Z may also be worth trying.
Edit: Depending on what you’re trying to do you also might need to install the official Vulkan SDK.
I don’t really know how it happened but after updating the integrated gpu drivers vulkan started working for the 2060. I have a ryzen 7 3750h on this laptop.
Just wanted to say that this worked for me! Thank you so much for explaining what you did rather than saying you figured it out and then leaving it at that! I happened to be in the same boat with you with the exact same processor messing it up in some way and right after I updated the driver it worked perfectly.
