The Steam client receives a new update, with a promising development that could significantly enhance our experience on a selection of video games.

This is the caching shaders or shader pre-caching , a function found in the software settings. Suites instruction setting made of our games, the shaders are here precompiled according to our configuration, this has the theoretical effect of reducing the loading time and reduce delays in. Difficult for the moment to put your finger on supported titles (if not it will be Vulkan and OpenGL games) as well as the real contributions of this addition, but it is interesting – however, it takes a bit of bandwidth, and can be disabled in the options Steam if necessary.
