Khronos announces OpenGL ES 3.1 Conformance Test

The Khronos OpenGL ES Working Group is pleased to announce the launch of the OpenGL ES 3.1 Adopter Program. The program gives participants access to the OpenGL ES 3.1 conformance test, and allows them to submit implementations for conformance certification. The OpenGL ES 3.1 conformance test builds on the latest version of the ES 3.0 test, which includes greatly enhanced shading language coverage contributed by drawElements Ltd. It adds eighteen new test categories covering the new features of ES 3.1, including compute shaders, image and buffer object load/store, atomic operations, and indirect drawing. In addition to the conformance test, the working group has released updated API and shading language specifications, containing many corrections and clarifications.

More information about the Adopter program can be found in the Adopters’ Agreement and the . The updated specifications are available in the Khronos OpenGL ES Registry.

Khronos Finalizes and Releases OpenVX 1.0 Specification 
for Computer Vision Acceleration

The Khronos Group today announced the ratification and public release of the finalized OpenVX 1.0 specification, an open, royalty-free standard for cross platform acceleration of computer vision applications. OpenVX enables performance and power-optimized computer vision processing, especially important in embedded and real-time uses cases such as face, body and gesture tracking, smart video surveillance, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), object and scene reconstruction, augmented reality, visual inspection, robotics and more. In addition to the OpenVX specification, Khronos has developed a full set of conformance tests and an Adopters Program, that enables implementers to test their implementations and use the OpenVX trademark if conformant. Khronos plans to ship an open source, fully-conformant CPU-based implementation of OpenVX 1.0 before the end of 2014. The full OpenVX 1.0 specification and details about the OpenVX Adopters Program are now available. The Khronos Group would like to hear what you think about this new Specification.

Xilinx SDAccel development environment for OpenCL, C, and C++, achieves Khronos Conformance

/assets/uploads/news/news_graphics/Xilinx-logo.png

Xilinx, Inc. announced that the SDAccel development environment for OpenCL, C, and C++ is now Khronos OpenCL 1.0 standard compliant. The OpenCL standard provides a uniform programming environment for software developers to write efficient, portable code enabling a rich range of algorithms to be easily accelerated on Xilinx FPGAs. SDAccel, the newest member of the SDx family, includes an architecturally optimizing compiler for OpenCL, C, and C++ and is proven to deliver up to 25X better performance/watt compared to CPUs or GPUs and 3X the performance and resource efficiency of other FPGA solutions.
