IBM releases OpenCL Common Runtime for Linux on x86 architecture

OpenCL™ Common Runtime for Linux® on x86 architecture is an OpenCL layered product that improves the OpenCL programming experience by alleviating the programmer from the burden of managing multiple OpenCL platforms and duplicated resources. It is a dynamic shared library that resides between an OpenCL application and one or more OpenCL implementations, such as those developed by AMD and NVIDIA® .

The Common Runtime supports all of the OpenCL v1.1 APIs in a single OpenCL platform consisting of all devices provided by the underlying implementations. This technology provides an integrated environment that can improve application portability as well as simplifying multi-device programming. The Common Runtime has been tested on the IBM System x® iDataPlex™ dx360 M3 with at least one NVIDIA® Tesla™ M2050 running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.5. In addition, OpenCL v1.1 implementations from AMD and NVIDIA were used in conjunction with the OpenCL Common Runtime.

Khronos to Create New Open Standard for 
Advanced Device and Sensor Input

The Khronos™ Group today announced a new initiative to create an open, platform-independent, royalty-free standard for accessing a wide diversity of advanced input devices including depth cameras, motion-tracking sensors, touch-screens and haptic devices. In response to requests and proposals from multiple members, Khronos has created a ‘StreamInput’ working group that TransGaming Inc. has offered to initially chair. This royalty-free standard will be developed under the proven Khronos development process aiming for a first public release within 12 months. Any interested company is welcome to join Khronos to make contributions, influence the direction of the specification and gain early access to draft specifications before public release. The StreamInput working group will commence work during April 2011. More details on joining Khronos can be found at http://www.khronos.org/members/ or emailing .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). Read More
