Current Vulkan denylist handling for nVidia GPUs can be relaxed to specific Vulkan drivers. Can we add a compare="less" version="457.36.0"?
Seems latest nVidia driver sets are again behaving.
Driver Version 18.104.22.16809 (2020-10-27)
DeviceName: Quadro K2000
Luboš Luňák committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
block nvidia drivers for vulkan only for version<457.36.0 (tdf#138145)
It will be available in 7.1.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
https://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More
information about daily builds can be found at:
Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
The relaxed denylist handling for nVidia drivers would not resolve the 7.0 release minimize/maximize loss of canvas control of bug 135370. Driver updates do not help. But all is good with master against 7.1.0 release.
Blocking all nVidia Vulkan rendering should probably continue for the 7.0 release.
I do not intend to backport this.

+1, the denylist is sufficient, easy enough to bypass for those unaffected.
