Not likely. Don't get me wrong, I'm rooting for Vulkan and I wish it would become more popular than DirectX, but if it was going to happen, it would have long ago with OpenGL. The only way I see this happening is if hell freezes over and Microsoft moves Windows to a *nix kernel.

My only actual negative experience with Vulkan is that it didn't load the color profile from Windows nor the color correction settings from nvidia panel when I loaded Doom Eternal last time I tried, and since then I've seen exactly zero games use it in a way that caused any issues... so yeah.

I wish more games would actually use it...

It's called "Vulkan" not "Vulcan". It's what is going to break the stranglehold of DirectX on the graphics API.

Information on Vulkan here.

Vulkan is actually a subset of Khronos. You can find all the contributors here.

It's an industry wide open standard so anything written with Vulkan is runnable on any platform:

Consoles
PCs
Handhelds
Phones
Linux
Windows
macOS
*BSD

Title actually says "Vulcan fan?" I.e. asking if you're a fan of Vulcan, the graphics API. Still a pretty pointless puff piece, but hopefully that clears the confusion.

Googling "Vulcan fan" returns nothing.
That headline can also imply that if you are a fan of Vulcan, Nvidia now gives you six reasons to run it on their platform.
