OpenCL receives strong industry support at SC09

• Tags:

Ben Bergen, evolving applications and architectures team, Los Alamos National Laboratory, commented at SC09 : "Our development experience at Los Alamos National Laboratory with adapting codes to the Roadrunner supercomputing architecture exposed several areas where there were no obvious tools or techniques that would allow us to maintain portability across the variety of platforms that we must routinely support to fulfil the Laboratory’s stewardship mission. Initial proof-of-concept experiments with the OpenCL framework make us optimistic that OpenCL can address many of the challenges that we will be facing as the HPC landscape evolves into the future."

WebGL is an API NOT a plug-in! Interview with Neil Trevett

• Tags:

3d-test sits with Neil Trevett for an interview on what WebGL is, and is not. "WebGL is an API NOT a plug-in! That's a crucial difference to previous approaches such as VRML and X3D. As OpenGL ES is a Khronos standard it makes perfect sense for the JavaScript binding to OpenGL ES to be defined at Khronos – and the WebGL working group is a unique collaborative forum between GPU and browser vendors to make 3D on the web a reality." says Neil Trevett.
