GPU Acceleration for the Web – State of the Union
Neil Trevett (NVIDIA, Vice President Mobile Ecosystem, President The Khronos Group)

This presentation provides up-to-the-minute updates and insights into initiatives that are unlocking the power of the GPU for web applications, including:

  • WebGL, the widely established web API bringing foundational, GPU-accelerated 3D to browsers across a wide diversity of platforms and devices
  • WebCL, an emerging JavaScript binding to OpenCL, enabling web applications to compile and execute C kernels across parallel CPUs and GPUs
  • NVIDIA path rendering extension to OpenGL for full GPU acceleration of vector based web graphics, particularly critical on mobile devices that need rapid touch responsiveness.
