Xiaomi Mi Pad Flipkart debuts with OpenGL 4.4, OpenGL ES 3.1 and tessellation

Xiaomi introduced its flagship tablet Mi Pad last week. Xiaomi Mi Pad houses the new generation Nvidia Tegra K1 processor. Inside, it packs ARM Cortex A15 quad-core chipset which can clock 2.2GHz CPU cycles and is backed by GeForce Kepler (192 cores) graphics engine. It is 1.5 times more energy efficient than other mobile GPUs and supports OpenGL 4.4, OpenGL ES 3.1 and tessellation, says the company. Mi Pad runs on the tweaked Android OS (4.4.4 KitKat) with MIUI v6.0. Unlike other UIs we see in Samsung, HTC, Sony and LG devices, Xiaomi's MIUI has a feature-rich interface and is refreshing. It is more like a hybrid between Android and iOS, yet simple and visually appealing.

Rightware launches Basemark ES 3.1, world’s first OpenGL ES 3.1 benchmark

As more and more devices support the OpenGL ES 3.1 graphics feature set, there needs to be a benchmark to test these devices and see how well they do with OpenGL ES 3.1 games that take advantage of all the new features. RightWare has released its newest version of Basemark ES, which is also the only benchmark tool available on the market to test the new OpenGL ES 3.1 features -- Basemark ES 3.1.

Imagination Packs High-Quality PowerVR Rogue Graphics with OpenGL ES 3.0 into a tiny footprint

Imagination Technologies announces a new area-optimized PowerVR GPU designed to drive high-quality graphics with full OpenGL ES 3.0 functionality into low-cost and space-constrained devices. The new PowerVR G6020 GPU has been specially designed for graphics efficiency in ultra-compact silicon area, obtaining better real device performance and compatibility without unnecessary overhead. It is the smallest member of the PowerVR Series6XE family, with four arithmetic logic unit (ALU) cores and a silicon footprint of 2.2mm2 (28nm process technology at 400MHz).

GDC 2015: Khronos Group sessions and the Next Generation of Graphics and Compute API

The Khronos Group will be holding a number of sessions off-site during GDC week. There will be two sessions dedicated to discussing the Next Generation of Graphics and Compute API, as well as an OpenCL and WebGL meetup. These sessions will be taking place at SF Green Space (EEFG) just a few minutes walking distance from the Moscone center on Wednesday and Thursday. Registration is highly advised for the off-site sessions as space is limited and a good crowd is expected. Complete details are available on the Khronos GDC 2015 event page.

OpenGL and OpenGL ES examples from NVIDIA

NVIDIA has provided a set of OpenGL and OpenGL ES examples illustrating various techniques and features to use in your own code. The GameWorks examples are aimed more at game developers, and run on Windows, Linux and Android. They are broken down by topic. The “NVIDIA Professional Visualization” set of examples are OpenGL based, and aimed more at the professional workstation developers. The repository is new, so expect more samples to be published soon. Linux support is being worked on. You can find the examples on Github.

Overview of Qt3D 2.0 – Part 2

/assets/uploads/news/news_graphics/KDAB-logo.png

KDAB are rewriting the Qt3D module of Qt 5 to provide an easy but flexible API for easily getting 3D content into your Qt applications using either C++ or QML. Qt3D is built on top of OpenGL and OpenGL ES and provides a data-driven renderer configuration. In the previous article we learned about the requirements and high-level architecture of Qt3D 2.0. In order to put some of this into context and to give you a concrete example of how it looks to draw something in Qt3D using the QML API, we will now briefly show the important parts of one of the simple examples that will ship with Qt3D.

Go bindings for OpenGL ES 2

Go is an open source programming language that makes it easy to build simple, reliable, and efficient software and has just hit v1.4. The OpenGL ES bindings are deliberately minimal, staying as close the C API as possible. The semantics of each function maps onto functions described in the Khronos documentation. One notable departure from the C API is the introduction of types to represent common uses of GLint: Texture, Surface, Buffer, etc.
