It's not uncommon to see beautiful visualizations in HPC center galleries, but the majority of these are either rendered off the HPC or created using programs that run on OpenGL or custom rasterization techniques. To put it simply the next generation of graphics provided by OpenGL's successor Vulkan is strangely absent in the super computing world. The aim of this survey of available resources is to determine the systems that can support Vulkan workflows and programs. This will assist users in getting past some of the first hurdles in using Vulkan in HPC contexts.
