Eizo Shimbun of Japan interview with Khronos president on OpenGL and OpenCL

The Eizo Shimbun of Japan interviewed Neil Trevett, president of the Khronos Group about the recent highlights including OpenGL 3.0 and OpenCL at SIGGRAPH 2008. On OpenGL, the new OpenGL API supports the future creation of profiles to enable products to support specific market needs while not burdening every implementation with unnecessary costs. Beyond 3.0, OpenGL will support multi-OS platoforms including WindowsXP. On OpenCL, “I think OpenCL will be the first API ever with the shortest TAT from the announcement to launch”, said Neil Trevett.
