Vivante leads mobile GPGPU revolution as first GPU IP supplier to pass OpenCL 1.1 conformance test

Vivante Corporation today announced Vivante GC Cores passed the Khronos Group OpenCL 1.1 Embedded Profile (EP) conformance test suite on Freescale's i.MX 6 platform. The GC Cores use the latest programmable ScalarMorphic architecture to accelerate parallel data workloads on thousands of concurrent threads to achieve Gigaflops (GFLOPS) of computational performance. Applications taking advantage of Vivante cores to significantly speed-up processing includes image processing, computer vision, analytics, augmented reality and gesture-motion tracking.

Imagination makes the case for mobile OpenCL

Imagination was showing off GPU compute on a cell phone chip at GDC, physics in your pocket. That demo was pretty simple, take a Pandaboard with a TI OMAP 4430, a dual-core ARM A9 CPU and an Imagination SGX540 GPU, and run a cloth simulation on it. Not only could the OpenCL version exploit the GPU to do more balls and sheets than the CPU version, but it saved power while doing so. How much? On one CPU, the simulation took about .68A@5V to run at 14FPS with 100% CPU load. With two A9 cores loaded, the Pandaboard pulled .84A and ran at 24FPS. In OpenCL, CPU load dropped to less than 30%, FPS jumped to 42, and power draw went down to .60A. More than 10% less energy used, 3x the frame rate, and you could run more simulations on the same box if you wanted. Not bad at all.

Daily.js Node round up:  node-webcl, node-webgl and node-glfw

Mikael Bourges-Sevenier has sent in three WebGL and WebCL modules that he’s written for Node. node-webcl from Motorola Mobility is an implementation of the Khronos WebCL working draft using Node. node-webgl is an implementation of the Khronos WebGL specification. node-glfw is a JavaScript wrapper around GLFW. This provides implementations, where possible, of WebGL methods on top of desktop OpenGL as well as a browser compliant event model.
