All current nougat and oreo roms already have Vulkan API drives, but do not come with the API enabled. This happens because the play store knows which devices received the API officially, which is not the case of Redmi Note 3 Pro. Because of this, even with the drives the system does not make full use of the API. For this it is necessary to camouflage the device, turning it into some device that has received the Vulkan officially. Thinking about it, I created this activator that does the simple work of camouflaging the device and turns it into a Galaxy S8+
After activating the Vulkan API the result is notable in games and applications that support the API.
I downloaded the AIDA64 play store and go to the "Devices" menu and check "Vulkan Device - Adreno (TM) 510". If it appears, your device has the vulkan drivers, now you only need to install my activator! (Check the attached image for how it should appear on AIDA64.)
If your device does not have the vulkan drivers, simply install them with the mod of the following topic: https://forum.xda-developers.com/red...-roms-t3531655
