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.

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.

OpenCL: Be Locked or Be Free

AMD joined other exhibitors at the International Workshop on OpenCL with a unique demonstration. Developed by the AMD FirePro team, the AMD Waterfall demo featured an FTS Celsius R930 Workstation with the AMD FirePro W9100 and a 4K monitor. Designed to showcase OpenCL and OpenGL interoperability, in the waterfall particle simulation, the solution computed the collision of each particle in order to roll it along the rocks. IWOCL 2014 presentations are available for download from Agenda & Slides from 2014 | IWOCL.
