Edge SDK v3.00 mobile game development engine to support OpenGL ES 1.1

Edge is a multi-platform game engine for mobile devices. The newly announced v3.00 will take full advantage of advanced 3D rasterizing using hardware acceleration and software rendering using OpenGL ES. Developers can use their favorite OpenGL ES implementation through the Edge SDK (including PowerVR, Rasteroid and Vincent OpenGL ES library). For Windows desktop development the standard OpenGL interface can be used.

Xen Games: Taking the OpenGL ES High Road

This article from SymbianOne is a interview with Xen Games and their transition from their own engine to OpenGL ES on Sony Ericsson's UIQ 3 phones. " As we concentrate on high quality games, which can take a year to write, we don't see any point in creating a game that is not OpenGL ES 3D enabled. It makes no sense to write a game for a device with a 3D chip without using its features. To use the chip you need to use the standard APIs and OpenGL ES is the most widespread standard on phones... The main advantage with OpenGL ES is its cross platform support."

logi3D scalable OpenGL ES-based 3D hardware accelerator for automotive applications

At CES, Xilinx demonstrated the logi3D, the automotive industry’s first 3D hardware accelerator IP core targeted specifically for its automotive line of XA FPGAs. The logi3D IP core for the OpenGL ES API provides Tier One automotive electronic suppliers with a parameterizable and scalable solution, allowing flexibility for customized graphics applications based on specific OEM customer requirements. The single screen solution is comprised of a 3D hardware acceleration IP core using OpenGL ES, a Xilinx MicroBlaze processor and display controller, all running on a Xilinx automotive qualified Spartan-3 XA device. Overlay, texturing, shading, and many other features of the core can be customized quickly and efficiently.

JBenchmark 239 OpenGL ES benchmark for Java ME

JBenchmark 239 is a 3D performance benchmark suite for Java Binding for the OpenGL ES API (JSR 239) compatible devices. The new benchmark not only measures Java based OpenGL ES 1.0 and 1.1 application performance, but also lets direct comparison to native OpenGL ES and Java Mobile 3D Graphics (JSR 184) results. As the high performance mobile engines all use OpenGL ES for underlying rendering, these measurements will also help finding bottlenecks in current Java implementations.
