Shader Components for Modular and High Performance Shader Development

• Tags: SIGGRAPH Vulkan OpenGL

Researchers at CMU and NVIDIA have developed an open source shading language and compiler framework named Spire enhanced to support shader components for high-performance rendering.  The Spire compiler can generate either GLSL or SPIR-V output for use with OpenGL and Vulkan based engines.  The work interfaces with a modernmini 3D engine that supports equivalent back-ends for both OpenGL and Vulkan.  The researchers will present this year’s work at SIGGRAPH next week which builds on a paper from last year’s SIGGRAPH.   Read More

Mark Kilgard presents “NVIDIA OpenGL in 2017” at SIGGRAPH


Attending SIGGRAPH 2017 next week?  OpenGL developers should attend this free NVIDIA session on Monday, July 31 to get the most out of OpenGL on Quadro, GeForce, and Tegra GPUs. Hear from an OpenGL expert at NVIDIA how the OpenGL continues to evolve. See how NVIDIA's Nsight developer tools make OpenGL development easier for you. Learn how your application can benefit from NVIDIA advancing OpenGL as a cross-platform, open industry standard.  See this schedule for a complete list of NVIDIA content at SIGGRAPH.   Read More

Just release - vkmark: more than a Vulkan benchmark

• Tags: Vulkan Github

With help from Khronos member Collabora, employee Alexandros Frantzis created vkmark, which aims to provide an extensible suite of targeted, configurable benchmarking scenes for Vulkan. Most scenes exercise specific Vulkan features or usage patterns (e.g., desktop 2.5D scenarios), although we are also happy to have more complex, visually intriguing scenes. vkmark Vulkan benchmark is available on GitHub.   Read More

Handling differences between Vulkan and OpenGL coordinate system

• Tags: Vulkan OpenGL

One of the key differences between OpenGL and Vulkan -and something that needs careful consideration when porting to Vulkan, is the coordinate system. Vulkan requires the right hand NDC space compared to GL that requires the left hand. Learn about the KHR_VK_maintainance1 extension and see how AnKi is flipping the viewport.   Read More
