Google has acquired Khronos Group member DrawElements

Google has acquired DrawElements, a Finland-based company that specializes in software used for GPU benchmarking and testing. DrawElements' main product is DrawElements Quality Program (dEQP), which is used to measure the quality of GPUs and their drivers, while also focusing on related work with OpenGL ES 2.0 drivers and software rasterizers. The dEQP suite is a toolkit used to benchmark the accuracy, precision, feature conformance and stability of OpenGL ES and OpenCL GPUs.   Read More

Khronos Toronto Chapter is holding a meetup August 21

If you work in graphics, you live and die by your tools. if you work in graphics for the web, this means Chrome or Firefox developer tools. Join the Khronos Toronto Chapter to discuss and learn about the latest web tools in Firefox and Chrome for WebGL and WebCL. For OpenGL folks there'll be a discussion to compare web graphics tools to native graphics tools.   Read More

New Dell Venue 8 tablet features a PowerVR Rogue GPU, runs OpenGL ES 3.0 and OpenCL out of the box

The refreshed Venue range of Android tablets from Dell is based on Intel Atom processors that run Android 4.4 KitKat. The Atom Z3460/Z3480 SoCs are 64-bit apps processors that include a dual-core CPU based on the Silvermont architecture and a quad-cluster PowerVR G6400 GPU capable of OpenGL ES 3.1, OpenCL 1.2 and RenderScript. In the past OpenCL had only been available on developer boards but the Venue 8 tablet is the first consumer device to come with both OpenCL and RenderScript working out of the box. We’ve loaded our OpenCL Camera Adjustment image processing demo to offer readers a quick comparison in performance. When running on our PowerVR G6400 GPU, the image processing demo averages around 74 fps while the Intel CPU peaks at 12 FPS. To put this into perspective, an Exynos-based Samsung Galaxy S4 using a PowerVR SGX544MP3 GPU was able to run the same demo at roughly 27 FPS.   Read More
