Are CAD applications planning to use Vulkan?
The professional design community is interested in Vulkan. It is not designed just for games; any application that is CPU bound can benefit from Vulkan.
For example, Vulkan can help with a CPU-bound, high-end CAD application model with hundreds of millions of polygons. In the professional authoring industry, there’s a lot more legacy code and OpenGL is not going away. But if CAD application developers want to migrate to Vulkan to take advantage of things like the multi-threading for large model interactivity, that is the kind of application that Vulkan is designed to enable.
