Enhanced Vulkan Support in new NVIDIA Nsight Graphics 2020.5 Developer Tool

With this release, NVIDIA has added support for Vulkan and Vulkan Ray Tracing in the Shader Profiler. Vulkan GLSL shaders are supported in the same way that was previously possible for D3D12 and DXR HLSL shaders. Users that provide debug information for their shaders can see detailed performance data mapped directly to the GLSL source lines it is associated with. This allows users to pinpoint performance issues caused by stalls in the shader instruction pipeline.
