Follow-up: Neil Trevett and Tom Olson from Khronos Group Discuss OpenCL and Vulkan Roadmap

• Tags:

PC Perspective had the opportunity to have a phone interview with Neil Trevett, president of the Khronos Group and chairman of the OpenCL working group, and Tom Olson, chairman of the Vulkan working group. While OpenCL is planning to merge into the Vulkan API, the Khronos Group wants to make it clear that “all of the merging” is coming from the OpenCL working group. The Vulkan API roadmap is not affected by this decision. Of course, the Vulkan working group will be able to take advantage of technologies that are dropping into their lap, but those discussions have not even begun yet. Read the entire post to learn more about the exciting future of OpenCL and Vulkan.   Read More

Intel Open Sources OpenCL Deep Neural Network library for Intel GPUs

• Tags:

The Intel Compute Library for Deep Neural Networks (clDNN) is an open source performance library for Deep Learning (DL) applications intended for acceleration of DL inference on Intel® Processor Graphics (Intel® HD Graphics and Intel® Iris® and Intel® Iris® Pro). clDNN includes highly optimized building blocks to implement convolutional neural networks (CNN) with C and C++ interfaces. This library is also used in the Deep Learning Toolkit found in the Intel Computer Vision SDK Beta. The clDNN library can be accessed at github. To learn more on how to use clDNN see whitepaper   Read More

OpenCL.org restarts the GEGL-OpenCL project

• Tags:

The Generic Graphics Library (GEGL) is best known as the backend for image processing software Gimp. GEGL is a graph based image processing framework that allows users to chain together image processing operations represented by nodes into a graph. It provides operations for loading and storing images, adjusting colors, filtering in different ways, transforming and compositing images. GEGL-OpenCL is an educational initiative that aims to get more developers to study and use OpenCL in their projects.    Read More

Khronos Releases OpenCL 2.2 With SPIR-V 1.2

The Khronos Group announces the immediate availability of the finalized OpenCL™ 2.2 specification, incorporating industry feedback received from developers during the provisional specification review period. In addition to releasing the specification in final form, Khronos has, for the first time, released the full source of the specifications and conformance tests for OpenCL 2.2 onto GitHub to enable deeper community engagement. The conformance tests for OpenCL versions 1.2, 2.0 and 2.1 have also been released on GitHub with more open-source releases to follow. The Windsor Testing Framework, also released today, enables developers to quickly install and configure the OpenCL Conformance Test Suite on their own systems. Developers who know OpenCL C and plan to port their kernels to OpenCL C++, the OpenCL C to OpenCL C++ Porting Guidelines have been released.   Read More

Use Glslang to Translate HLSL Shaders to SPIR-V

• Tags:

Many applications porting to Vulkan also need a way to port their HLSL shaders to SPIR-V. Glslang provides a method to translate HLSL shaders to SPIR-V, which is now available and ready to use. Currently the HLSL mode of the glslang frontend is complete enough to run complex, real-world workloads such as Dota 2 and Ashes of the Singularity. It accepts shaders for any shader stage, and handles common language constructs for functions, control flow, variable and type declarations, registers and pack offsets, most DX10 and later texture methods, most intrinsic functions, most preprocessor functionality, most built-in semantics, and attributes that affect stage functionality. To learn more about the HLSL to SPIR-V translator, visit this FAQ at the glslang GitHub.   Read More

Neural Networks Need Some Translation - Invitation to Khronos NNEF Advisory Panel

Neural Networks Need Some Translation - Invitation to Khronos NNEF Advisory Panel

Khronos is readying a standard interchange format to map training frameworks to inference engines. The Neural Network Exchange Format (NNEF) is an open, scalable transfer format that allows engineers to move trained networks from any framework that supports the cross-vendor format into any inference engine that can read it. It’s a sort of PDF for neural networks. Khronos is extending an invitation to data scientists and engineers to take part in an NNEF advisory panel, especially people working on non-standard and novel network inferencing architectures. Participation does not require a Khronos membership and will give interested companies and individuals an opportunity to contribute and provide feedback to this important work.   Read More

Imagination PowerVR Series8XT IP core on Furian GPU supporting Vulkan, OpenCL and OpenVX

Imagination Technologies announces the first GPU IP core based on its new PowerVR Furian architecture, the Series8XT GT8525. Says Tatiana Solokhina, CTO, RnD Center ELVEES, a Khronos member: “As a provider of SoCs for a wide range of global video analytics applications, we require a GPU that offers the best compute performance in a power constrained footprint. The new PowerVR Furian 8XT family from Imagination provides us an industry-leading GPU with new ALU for increased performance density and efficiency. In addition, support for standard compute APIs such as OpenVX enables easy implementation of real world vision processing applications.” Furian is designed to address the increasing compute requirements across multiple applications and market segments with efficient use of compute APIs including OpenCL 2.0, Vulkan 1.0 and OpenVX 1.1.    Read More
