I'm considering whether to go with Vulkan over OpenGL right now. I originally planned writing an OpenGL renderer and writing a Vulkan one later, but writing a Vulkan one now may be better for performance, especially on Linux.


This does mean that this renderer will not run on certain old hardware, and it will take a little longer to write. According to this page, this is the hardware you'd need:

  • Nvidia: GeForce 600 series or newer
  • AMD: Radeon HD 7700 series or newer
  • Intel: 6th generation Core (Skylake) or newer See Nvidia or AMD requirements

Obviously, it will be difficult for most people to obtain such hardware since some graphics cards that meet the requirements cards cost almost as much as a copy of Halo (around $20-$40) and most people cannot seem to afford that, either. However, I don't care, because it's my project and I can do whatever I want with it.
