Fixstars will contribute to the penetration of the OpenCL in various industries by teaching at seminars with its expertise in multi-core programming. "Khronos warmly welcomes Fixstars hosting the first OpenCL programming seminar in Japan," said Neil Trevett, chair of the OpenCL working group, president of the Khronos Group and vice president at NVIDIA. "Providing developers the skills and insights to use a state-of-the-art technology such as OpenCL is a vital part of the growing parallel programming ecosystem, and Fixstars is uniquely qualified to provide the quality training that will result in stunning parallel applications." Fixstars recently joined the Khronos Group as a contributing member. Read More

gDEBugger new version release: Introducing vertex batch statistics and primitive counters

Graphic Remedy is proud to announce the release of gDEBugger Version 5.2 for Windows, Mac OS X, iPhone and Linux. The new version adds a new Vertex Batch Statistics view to the gDEBugger Statistics viewer. OpenGL draw function calls are grouped by the number of vertices they push into the graphic pipeline, allowing the user to view and improve the ratio between API calls made and vertices drawn. In addition, the new release introduces OpenGL primitive performance counters, displaying the total number of render primitives and vertices drawn per frame, as well as a breakdown to the specific primitive types (points, lines and triangles). Version 5.2 also includes a public beta release of gDEBugger iPhone. gDEBugger iPhone runs on top of Apple's iPhone Simulator, enabling developers to debug and optimize iPhone OpenGL ES-based applications within their primary work environment.

DMP announces a two day getting start GLSL Programming training course

DMP has announced a new two day getting start GLSL Programming training course on August 20th and 21st 2009. The OpenGL ES roadmap has been tailored to the diverse needs of the embedded industry and contains two tracks with "1.X" and "2.X" specification roadmaps that will evolve in parallel. The 1.X roadmap will continue to be developed for new-generation fixed function 3D accelerators while the 2.X roadmap will enable emerging programmable 3D pipelines.This course introduce the world of programmable pipeline by explaining basic topics of the GLSL(OpenGL Shading Language) which is a core feature of OpenGL ES 2.x and OpenGL 2.x.
