3D Shape generator using OpenGL3 and OpenCL

• Tags:

The Belgian scientist Johan Gielis discovered a mathematical formula to describe many shapes existing in nature. This formula is called the "Super Formula". To demonstrate GPGPU and to show that it can be used for many purposes including simply having some fun, we developed the "SuperShaper". A tool that uses OpenCL to create very high-detail 3D models using the Super Formula.   Read More

OpenCL Toolbox for MATLAB announced

• Tags:

MATLAB announces the first release of OpenCL Toolbox. It is a simple interface that encapsulates clBuffer and clKernel as MATLAB class objects. It allows one to easily create device buffers, set device memory, compile and call kernel functions. MATLAB® is a high-level language and interactive environment that enables you to perform computationally intensive tasks faster than with traditional programming languages such as C, C++, and Fortran.    Read More

SGI announces new series of OpenGL programming courses

• Tags:

These OpenGL Programming course help application programmers master platform-independent graphics programming using OpenGL. Students learn to create interactive, animated applications displaying wire-frame and solid 3D models controlled by user input and how to add lighting, textures, and other effects to increase realism. Newer OpenGL topics such as using vertex-buffer objects for better performance, and vertex and fragment shaders for advanced shading techniques are introduced. Courses will be offered in March, May and October in California, the UK and in Asia if the demand is there. Full details and information are available online.   Read More

Benchmarks : OpenCL versus CUDA/STREAM

• Tags:

SiSoftware has posted two OpenCL benchmarks online. One addresses GPGPU OpenGL performance, and the second CPU OpenGL performance. The conclusion: There is no reason not to port CUDA code to OpenCL now!   Read More
