Imagination announces the PowerVR G6100, a single cluster OpenGL ES 3.0 Series6 GPU

The PowerVR G6100 is the latest addition to the highly efficient Series6 family of graphics IP cores, making it the smallest member of the "Rogue" area-optimized GPUs to date. A single core, single cluster GPU, it will enable mass-market adoption of OpenGL ES 3.0 on a wide range of computing platforms. Products supporting the latest APIs from Khronos will become a significant and growing part of a billion unit market by 2014. PowerVR Series6 is one of the first GPU architectures to achieve full conformance for OpenGL ES 3.0. Launched at MWC in Barcelona, the PowerVR G6100 is the smallest and most efficient GPU available on the market that can handle both graphics APIs like OpenGL ES 3.0 and DirectX9 Level 3 as well as GPU compute applications accelerated through OpenCL, Renderscript Compute or Filterscript.

The Khronos OpenGL ES Working Group announces the OpenGL ES 3.0 Adopter program

The OpenGL ES Working Group is pleased to announce the launch of the OpenGL ES 3.0 Adopter program. OpenGL ES implementers that join the program get access to the OpenGL ES 3.0 conformance test, and are able to submit their products for OpenGL ES 3.0 conformance certification. The OpenGL ES 3.0 conformance test is the result of the largest software development project Khronos has ever undertaken. It is a revised and expanded version of the OpenGL ES 2.0 conformance test, with hundreds of subtests directed at the new features of OpenGL ES 3.0. Conformance certification is the mark of a high-quality implementation, and offers a high level of application portability. More information about the OpenGL ES 3.0 Adopter program can be found in the Adopters’ Agreement and the Khronos Conformance Test Process document.
