Intel Arc Driver Optimizations Leverage Valve’s DXVK Translator

However yesterday, Intel has released a major driver update for its Arc Alchemist GPUs. As a result, he nearly doubled his FPS (frames per second) on DX9-based titles. Now, according to Reported by GamingOnLinux, We know how Intel was able to accomplish this task in some games. Intel has added another conversion layer to its latest graphics driver featuring his DXVK conversion layer on Steam. This is the same conversion layer that Steam uses with the Proton API to convert Windows games to Linux ( steam deck), allowing Intel to convert DX9 code to the open source Vulkan API.

According to yesterday’s Intel blog post, Intel apparently only uses the DXVK conversion layer in some cases. That driver takes a hybrid approach that opportunistically utilizes combinations of API technologies that leverage translation layers using one or more modern API implementations. As a result, Intel never uses his DXVK for the entire DX9 process, and he only uses it if it can provide better performance than Intel’s DX12 emulation technology.
