Adobe Flash renamed to Adobe Animate CC and exports to HTML5 and WebGL

For nearly two decades, Flash Professional has been the standard for producing rich animations on the web. Since the emergence of HTML5 and demand for animations that leverage web standards, Adobe rewrote the tool to incorporate native HTML5 Canvas and WebGL support. Read More

Think Silicon announces support for Vulkan on NEMA-GPU SERIES

Think Silicon's mandate was always to deliver best in class ultra-low-power 2D/3D graphics performance thus the company took a close look at the Vulkan standard. We quantified the benefits of Vulkan graphics and compute APIs and we believe that Vulkan has the potential to become a very widely adopted cross-platform next generation 3D API. Read More

The Mali GPU: An Abstract Machine, Part 1 - Frame Pipelining

For developers new to graphics optimization this new series of blog posts from ARM is all about giving content developers the essential knowledge they need to successfully optimize for Mali GPUs. Over the course of the series, Peter Harris explores the fundamental macro-scale architectural structures and behaviors developers have to worry about, how this translates into possible problems which can be triggered by content, and finally how to spot them in Streamline.

New reference glTF loader in C#

This is a C# reference loader for glTF. It's as simple to use as Interface.LoadModel("PathToModel.gltf"). You can use this loader in your project by importing the "glTF Loader" NuGet package. Additional examples can be found in the gltfLoaderUnitTests project. Read More

LunarG Splitting to Address Vulkan Needs

LunarG announced that the company is splitting into two teams to better address the needs of Vulkan, the new graphics API from Khronos. The Desktop group will continue as LunarG, sponsored by Valve, and the team members from the Mobile group will move over to Google to work on Android. LunarG will continue to work closely with Khronos to forge the new Vulkan ecosystem. Read More

Vulkan: Scaling to multiple threads

Imagination Technologies is halfway through their series of blog posts on Vulkan. Hopefully you’ve checked out the other blog posts, or tuned into the webinars? This next post will discuss the importance of scaling to multiple threads, and how Vulkan helps achieve that. Read More

Redhat talks OpenCL to define a programming interface for FPGA accelerators

Jon Masters, a chief ARM architect at Red Hat has talked to FPGA makers about starting an initiative to define a programming interface for FPGA accelerators, probably based on OpenCL. Such an interface should include standard drivers that support PCI Express virtualization and be available for download on system boot up. IBM and Xilinx announced a multi-year strategic collaboration to jointly develop FPGA accelerators for OpenPower systems that target data centers and network function virtualization for carriers. They are collaborating on a cloud-based service for FPGA acceleration and will work on enabling programming FPGAs in C, C++ and OpenCL Read More

OpenCL at SC15 – the booths to go to

For all the folks at SC15, if you are wondering where to find OpenCL on the show floor, StreamComputing has a great starter list, and don't forget about our own event page, which lists all the OpenCL related events happening at SC15. Read More

Khronos Releases OpenCL 2.1 and SPIR-V 1.0 Specifications for Heterogeneous Parallel Programming

The Khronos Group today announced the ratification and public release of the OpenCL 2.1 and SPIR-V 1.0 specifications for heterogeneous parallel computation. Consumption of the new SPIR-V cross-API intermediate language is guaranteed in the core OpenCL 2.1 specification. Khronos has released open source utilities and extensions to enable use of SPIR-V in OpenCL 1.2 and 2.0, as well as the upcoming Vulkan graphics API, ensuring widespread availability of its powerful runtime capabilities for developers of parallel computation languages and frameworks. The OpenCL C++ kernel language released in the OpenCL 2.1 provisional specification is being finalized and will be released imminently, also using SPIR-V for run-time execution. The OpenCL 2.1 specification is available for immediate download and SPIR-V 1.0 is available online as well. Read More
