Intrinsic is an Open Source, Vulkan based, cross-platform graphics and game engine. The project is currently in an early stage of development, and according to it's author, is developing rapidly. There is a website and the project itself is hosted on Github. Read More

First comparison of Vulkan API vs OpenGL ES API on ARM

Vulkan API supports multithreading, which is particularly important for mobile platforms. Multithreading enables the system to balance the workload across multiple CPUs, allowing for lower voltage and frequency. The results give considerable energy savings compared to OpenGL ES API. In this video from ARM, you can see just how big a difference there is between OpenGL ES and Vulkan.

VR Part 2: All about the software! Creating optimised VR content with Imagination’s PowerVR family

This webinar examines both the graphical and video content needed to drive the adoption of VR. The widespread uptake of VR will depend on the creation of compelling use cases for the consumer. We will focus on two main use cases today, immersive 360 degree video content creation and display, and high quality gaming.
What will you learn?
• How to create compelling 3D GFX content for VR applications
• Khronos APIs and extensions for VR graphics
• 360° video creation – encoding, stitching and playback

NVIDIA demonstrates high-end virtual reality car rendered with OpenGL

1NVIDIA demonstrated at GTC Europe a high-end virtual reality demo of a complete car model. You can explore every detail of the complete car model in virtual reality. To accomplish this, the demo harnesses the NV_gpu_multicast OpenGL extension so two Quadro P6000 can render the left- and right-eye views in parallel and then handles the massive geometric detail with the NV_command_list OpenGL extension.

Khronos Launches Dual Neural Network Standard Initiatives

The Khronos Group today announced the creation of two standardization initiatives to address the growing industry interest in the deployment and acceleration of neural network technology. Firstly, Khronos has formed a new working group to create an API independent standard file format for exchanging deep learning data between training systems and inference engines. Work on generating requirements and detailed design proposals for the Neural Network Exchange Format (NNEF™) is already underway, and companies interested in participating are welcome to join Khronos for a voice and a vote in the development process. Secondly, the OpenVX™ working group has released an extension to enable Convolutional Neural Network topologies to be represented as OpenVX graphs and mixed with traditional vision functions. Read the press release about both of these Neural Network Standard Initiatives. Read More

Khronos DevU in Seoul Korea: Vulkan All-day Tutorial

Khronos DevU in Seoul Korea: Vulkan All-day Tutorial

Khronos is pleased to present a full-day workshop on Vulkan in the upcoming DevU in Seoul, Korea. This session will go in depth into Vulkan, providing you with an important overview, then quickly diving deep beyond the basics into its use and structure, followed by a few case studies with code walkthroughs. There will be ample opportunity to speak with the instructors both during, and after the event in a social get together. This DevU session will be taught by Khronos working group members who specialize in Vulkan and who participated in its creation. Beginners are welcome, but the session is intended for experienced developers with knowledge of 3D graphics and rendering. In addition to a full day of Vulkan training, the session will include all course materials, a Vulkan Quick Reference Guide, a Vulkan t-shirt, and a buffet lunch. For more information and to register your spot, please visit the DevU session page. Read More
