First public demonstration of OpenCL running on a GPU

The first public demonstration of OpenCL running on a GPU was done by NVIDIA on December 12, 2008 at Siggraph Asia. This demo of OpenCL on NVIDIA GPU was based on early non-released OpenCL API/driver interface. The nbody simulation shown was a simulation of massive particles under the influence of physical forces. Nbody simulation is known to be computationally intensive. The demo shows how OpenCL can deliver high performance computing using the parallel cores of the CUDA architecture on NVIDIA GPUs. This demo also illustrates the idea that core computational code can be written in OpenCL and will scale to whatever number of cores are available. The demo shown in Siggraph used the 32 parallel cores available on the NVIDIA Quadro FX 570M GPU that it ran on. Read More

Imagination announces first member of new vector graphics IP core family

Imagination Technologies today announced the first in a new family of scalable vector graphics processor IP cores - the POWERVR™ VGX150. The POWERVR VXG150 extends the reach of Imagination’s graphics IP to entry level handsets and developing markets. The POWERVR VGX architecture provides native acceleration of all functionality in OpenVG 1.1, the vector graphics API developed by the Khronos group, offloading virtually all processing from the CPU to deliver high-performance acceleration. Through full support of the OpenVG 1.1 API stack, VGX150 enables full high performance acceleration of all OpenVG applications such as SVG players, Flash Lite™ 3 and Flash™ 7 players as well as native OpenVG content. It achieves extremely low power consumption while requiring very small silicon area for high quality graphical user interface, browser and navigation experiences based on vector graphics. Read More

gDEBugger V4.5 Adds the ability to view Texture Mipmap levels and Texture Arrays

The new gDEBugger V4.5 adds the ability to view texture mipmap levels. Each texture mipmap level’s parameters and data (as an image or raw data) can be displayed in the gDEBugger Texture and Buffers viewer. Browse the different mipmap levels using the Texture Mipmap Level slider. gDEBugger V4.5 further introduces support of 1D and 2D texture arrays. The new Textures and Buffers viewer Texture Layer slider enables viewing the contents of different texture layers. This version also introduces notable performance and stability improvements. gDEBugger, an OpenGL and OpenGL ES debugger and profiler, traces application activity on top of the OpenGL API, lets programmers see what is happening within the graphic system implementation to find bugs and optimize OpenGL application performance. gDEBugger runs on Windows and Linux operating systems, and is currently in Beta phase on Mac OS X.
