NaturalPoint, Inc. was founded in 1997 to develop and bring to market high quality image tracking technology and unique computer control devices. Now the largest motion capture provider in the world, NaturalPoint offers high-performance optical tracking solutions at the most affordable prices in the industry. As a result, it has become the favorite of industry leaders in VR, drones, game and film production, university education and research, engineering, robotics, industrial measurement, life science, sports performance, injury prevention, and many others.

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.

NVIDA Rolls Out Multiple Vulkan-related initiatives at GTC 2022

At the recent GTC 2022 Conference NVIDIA released multiple initiatives to boost the productivity of Vulkan developers. The new NVIDIA Nsight Systems 2022.2 system-wide performance analysis tool supports the new Vulkan graphics pipeline library extension and Vulkan memory operations. NVIDIA’s new Streamline open-source, cross-IHV framework can be used to integrate multiple super-resolution technologies into Vulkan games and applications. And lastly, NVIDIA’s new Cloud Playtest virtual development environment that builds on GeForce NOW infrastructure enables the coordination and observation of playtests for Vulkan games without physical hardware or presence.

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.
