Announcing our summer Agility SDKs

Jacques van Rhyn

We’re pleased to announce that we have two new Agility SDKs available today!

Agility SDK 1.606.3 contains support for Shader Model 6.7, which we announced was in the works earlier this year. Today, Shader Model 6.7 is ready for you to try!

We also have another preview Agility SDK out today: 1.706.3-preview, see here for our blog. In addition to SM 6.7 support, this SDK contains a new and improved preview for Enhanced Barriers, plus a few smaller features. The addition of Enhanced Barriers support in this preview also makes Shader Model 6.7 is even more useful by letting developers access the full capabilities of Raw Gather.
