Khronos Releases OpenVX 1.0 Specification for Computer Vision Acceleration

The Khronos Group today announced the ratification and public release of the OpenVX 1.0 provisional specification, an open, royalty-free standard for cross platform acceleration of computer vision applications and libraries. OpenVX enables performance and power optimized computer vision algorithms for use cases such as face, body and gesture tracking, smart video surveillance, automatic driver assistance systems, object and scene reconstruction, augmented reality, visual inspection, robotics and more. The provisional release of the specification enables developers and implementers to provide feedback before specification finalization, which is expected within six months. The OpenVX 1.0 Provisional Specification Press Release is available on the Khronos Group website and the official feedback thread is available on the Khronos forums. Read More

Xilinx leveraging Vivado Design Suite and new OpenCL flow at Supercomputing Conference 2013

Xilinx and its ecosystem will showcase smarter data center solutions that leverage Vivado Design Suite and the portability of OpenCL programming language at Supercomputing Conference 2013 (SC13). Experts in Xilinx's data center and design methodology groups will be conducting in-depth technical demonstrations that showcase: acceleration of Monte Carlo options pricing on x86 platform; high speed (HD 1080p) video processing on a Zynq®-7000 SoC platform; and OpenCL design environment for Xilinx FPGAs. To schedule a private appointment visit Xilinx at the Convey booth (#3547) or the Alpha Data booth (#4237). Read More

PS4 PlayStation Store, Music and Video Applications running WebGL

When you login to your PS4 you are running WebGL code. The PlayStation Store, the Music and Video Applications, as well as a good chunk of UX are all rendered within the browser. Don Olmstead spent a good amount of time tuning the WebGL rendering engine, and he will be speaking at +SFHTML5 about how to optimize WebGL usage within the context of his work. There will be plenty of great tips on how you can speed up your own WebGL applications so get your slot now. And for those of you can't make it in person it will be live streamed on Google Developers Live. Read More

drawElements Releases GPU Quality Market Research

drawElements Releases GPU Quality Market Research

drawElements will release the world’s first mobile GPU market study focusing on complete quality at the Slush startup conference. Covering aspects beyond mere performance, the report will provide unique insights into the differences between the graphics capabilities of mobile devices. drawElements has studied the graphics processing units (GPUs) of modern high-end smart devices with the unique drawElements Quality Program (dEQP) software. The study sheds light on the challenges faced by developers aspiring to produce next-generation applications and games leveraging the full power of GPUs. The study was conducted by running over 18,000 test cases on 17 devices containing 12 different GPUs from five different vendors. Read More
