DailyJS… After Many Years of Desktop Programming… WebGL

• Tags:

If you’re interested in WebGL development, then you might enjoy My forays into JavaScript by Stavros Papadopoulos. A white paper, WebGL GUI library, and terrain rendering engine all rolled into one. The GUI toolkit is desktop and Android inspired, but it’s rendered with WebGL. There’s a live demo that loads chunks of terrain data as you fly around – the terrain is rendered offline by a Delphi program.

New Dell Venue 8 tablet features a PowerVR Rogue GPU, runs OpenGL ES 3.0 and OpenCL out of the box

• Tags:

The refreshed Venue range of Android tablets from Dell is based on Intel Atom processors that run Android 4.4 KitKat. The Atom Z3460/Z3480 SoCs are 64-bit apps processors that include a dual-core CPU based on the Silvermont architecture and a quad-cluster PowerVR G6400 GPU capable of OpenGL ES 3.1, OpenCL 1.2 and RenderScript. In the past OpenCL had only been available on developer boards but the Venue 8 tablet is the first consumer device to come with both OpenCL and RenderScript working out of the box. We’ve loaded our OpenCL Camera Adjustment image processing demo to offer readers a quick comparison in performance. When running on our PowerVR G6400 GPU, the image processing demo averages around 74 fps while the Intel CPU peaks at 12 FPS. To put this into perspective, an Exynos-based Samsung Galaxy S4 using a PowerVR SGX544MP3 GPU was able to run the same demo at roughly 27 FPS.

Google announce Android Extension Pack with OpenGL ES 3.1 superset in upcoming Android L release

• Tags:

Google's new Android Extension Pack and OpenGL ES 3.1 are supported in the upcoming Android L release. The Android Extension Pack is a set of extensions to OpenGL ES which provides features like tessellation to improve the detail of geometry rendered onscreen, and geometry shaders which can also be used to add detail to what is rendered onscreen as well as to add shadows to a scene. The Android Extension Pack also includes support for compute shaders, and Adaptive Scalable Texture Compression (ASTC).

OpenGL ES mobile hardware database powered by OpenGL ES CapsViewer for Android

• Tags:

The free OpenGL ES CapsViewer app is now available for Android. This tools reads out all hardware capabilities of Android devices and can upload them to an online database that developers can access to check out OpenGL ES 2.0 and OpenGL ES 3.0 capabilities for the various devices out on the market. The database contains OpenGL ES information including extensions, compressed texture formats, capabilities, EGL extensions, device features and available hardware sensors. You can compare up to 8 different devices at once, so developers can easily check out what features are supported by their targeted devices.

Chrome and Firefox for Android both now support WebGL

• Tags:

This enables vastly improved performance as well as Construct 2's awesome shader effects such as this ripple transition example. This alone can make for a much more mobile gaming experience in the browser. Firefox appears to support WebGL on all devices. However Chrome have taken a stricter approach, and only enable it on relatively new devices.
