Imagination blog on Unreal Engine and the ray tracing revelation - Vulkan

• Tags: Game Engines Vulkan OpenGL OpenGL ES

Imagination Technologies latest blog is broken into two parts: The first part discusses issues related to the artist and the production of game scene assets. The second part describes the software engineering project to integrate the Unreal Engine with Imagination’s PowerVR GR6500 Wizard development hardware, and their Vulkan driver with their proposed ray tracing API extensions, in order to demonstrate ray tracing functionality running in a well-known game engine.

Igalia contributions to Intel OpenGL 4.5 certified drivers

• Tags: Conformance OpenGL

Igalia has contributed several features and bugfixes that helped achieve this important milestone. During the last several months, Igalia has been working hard on improving the Intel driver to enable 64-bit floating point support. We developed OpenGL extensions such as ARB_gpu_shader_fp64 and ARB_vertex_attrib_64bit, which were a major contributor to increasing the supported OpenGL version. As members of the Khronos Group, Igalia also had the opportunity to contribute tests and bugfixes to the conformance suite itself.

Amazon EC2 Elastic GPUs support OpenGL

• Tags: GPU Cloud OpenGL

Amazon EC2 users will soon have the ability to add OpenGL acceleration to existing EC2 instance types. Amazon-optimized OpenGL library will automatically detect and make use of Elastic GPUs. Amazon will start out with Windows support for OpenGL, and plan to add support for the Amazon Linux AMI and other versions of OpenGL after that. The GPU added to the instance can have 1, 2, 4, or 8 gigabytes of video memory. It’s becoming much easier to use OpenGL from GPUs in the cloud.
