The Khronos Group’s ANARI Working Group has issued a Request for Proposal. The working group has developed the ANARI software development kit (SDK) which needs an associated conformance test suite (CTS) to validate vendor implementations against the specification through the SDK. This project will develop a project plan with the ANARI working group for implementing the ANARI CTS. All submissions must be sent to [email protected] by 5PM PT on Friday May 27th, 2022. Please see a complete list of our RFPs here.

With the release of Portable Computing Language (POCL) 3.0-RC1, there is now initial support for OpenCL 3.0 running on CPUs with LLVM 14+. In addition, LLVM/Clang 14 support and improved tracing, scripts for converting traces into Chromium trace visualizer format are new major features.
The Virtual Dimension Center is Germany’s leading network for Virtual Engineering. Since 2002, the VDC creates synergies between the network members and supports technology transfer. Today, approximately 100 members and partners - among them research institutions, technology suppliers, service providers, users and multipliers - are working in the topics of Simulation, Visualisation, Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) and Virtual Reality (VR) along the whole value chain Virtual Engineering together. Hence they benefit of a higher Innovation activity and productivity due to information and cost advantages compared to companies outside the network. The competitive advantages are a result of transparent competences, raised information flow and easier business contacts.

It was announced on GPUOpen that AMD has added support for the ANARI 1.0 provisional specification on Radeon ProRender.
In this in-depth interview, RedGamingTech sits down with Khronos President, Neil Trevett, to discuss Vulkan and Vulkan 1.3, including upscaling, and revolutionary new tech such as glTF, OpenXR, and the importance of interoperability, and why having a single open source solution is SO important for gaming. Topics include Khronos’ Vulkan, DirectX 12 (including DirectStorage), upsampling / upscaling, how OpenXR could benefit virtual reality / VR devices and more.
OpenCL 3.0.11 adds two new extensions and continues the regular release cadence for specification bug fixes and clarifications. The cl_khr_subgroup_rotate extension enables an OpenCL kernel to rotate values among work-items in a subgroup for increased data exchange efficiency in many algorithms. The cl_khr_work_group_uniform_arithmetic extension enables an OpenCL kernel to use new work-group scan and reduction operators which can boost the performance of many use cases—and is ideal to accelerate C++ scan and reduction functions in SYCL 2020 implementations targeting OpenCL as a backend.
