Mixing Graphics and Compute with Multiple GPUs

Watch Alina Alt explain compute API interoperability with OpenGL (using CUDA and OpenCL APIs) and delve into interoperability at a system level (or review the slides). Alina explains challenges and benefits of dedicating one GPU for compute and another for graphics, how different system configurations affect data transfer between two GPUs, and how it translates into application design decisions helping to enable an efficient, cross-GPU interoperability between compute and graphics contexts.

Khronos Releases ASTC Next-Generation 
Texture Compression Specification

The Khronos Group today announced the immediate release of the royalty-free, Adaptive Scalable Texture Compression (ASTC™) LDR extension specification, defining a new, highly flexible texture compression scheme for developers using both the OpenGL® ES and OpenGL® 3D graphics APIs. ASTC is an exceptionally efficient compression technology which allows encoding of for a wide variety of texture formats at bit-rates of 8 bits per pixel to below 1 bit per pixel. ASTC is published as a Khronos extension, KHR_compressed_texture_astc_ldr, which is available from the Khronos website.
