Vulkan is the next-gen OpenGL, heavily influenced by AMD’s Mantle project.
Vulkan has support for any shader and compute language. Drivers can choose to only implement to the level of shader languages.
In many cases performance of Vulkan is better than OpenGL, due to asynchronous execution. GLSL-shaders can be shared by both via SPIR-V.
