Khronos rolls out OpenGL 4.6, highlights significant momentum for glTF and announces Vulkan Portability Initiative
July 31, 2017 – 6:00 AM PT – SIGGRAPH – Los Angeles – The Khronos™ Group, an open consortium of leading hardware and software companies, announces new API updates and roadmap decisions at SIGGRAPH 2017. Khronos standards are fundamental to many of the technologies on display at SIGGRAPH and the group is providing open education, training, and workshops to the community to accelerate the development and deployment of cross-platform APIs.
Khronos announces recent API developments this week at SIGGRAPH including:
The Khronos Group is hosting its annual, full-day BOF Blitz open to the public on August 2 with topics covering OpenVX, NNEF, OpenCL, SYCL, COLLADA, glTF, WebGL, OpenXR, Vulkan, OpenGL, and OpenGL ES. In addition, Khronos will host its annual after-party as well as educational sessions and networking events throughout the week.The full schedule of events is available at: https://www.khronos.org/news/events/2017-siggraph.
About The Khronos Group
The Khronos Group is an industry consortium creating open standards to enable the authoring and acceleration of parallel computing, graphics, vision and neural nets on a wide variety of platforms and devices. Khronos standards include Vulkan®, OpenGL®, OpenGL® ES, OpenGL® SC, WebGL™, SPIR-V™, OpenCL™, SYCL™, OpenVX™, NNEF™, COLLADA™, OpenXR™ and glTF™. Khronos members are enabled to contribute to the development of Khronos specifications, are empowered to vote at various stages before public deployment, and are able to accelerate the delivery of their cutting-edge accelerated platforms and applications through early access to specification drafts and conformance tests.
