We reported initial work towards a new fast and scalable scientific visualization technology that leverages the Vulkan API to achieve unprecedented performance through GPUs. This technology is implemented in a C/C++ library called Datoviz that offers an intermediate-level API for scientific visualization libraries and software. Datoviz provides a unified graphics stack for 2-D, 3-D, graphical user interfaces, and natively supports efficient interactions between rendering and general-purpose GPU computing. A major direction of development is to investigate the integration of Datoviz as a low-level backend of a future version of VisPy, a popular Python scientific plotting library.
