Fans have been demanding the inclusion of the next-gen, 3D graphics and computing renderer for a while now.
Their wishes have been answered with a tweet from the official PCSX2,Twitter account.
A lot of people were asking for a Vulkan renderer and courtesy of Stenzek (Duckstation) it is finally here! It performs better than OpenGL in a lot of cases on similar blending levels so it should make a couple of harder to run games much easier to play! Thanks Sten! pic.twitter.com/rBzyi6McrW— PCSX2 (@PCSX2) January 8, 2022

What is Vulkan Render?
You all have heard of OpenGL, which is a pretty standard graphics renderer for most games out there.
Of late, it has started to show its age. There are a few limitations on the 3D graphics and video gaming programming, and this is where Vulkan comes in.
The new age Vulkan has superior 3D graphics and gaming interlacing with significant efficiency.
It does all of that while having lower overhead hardware, offering a bottle-neck experience consistently.
