NVIDIA: Vulkan Memory Management

• Tags:

NVIDIA just posted the next installment of their Vulkan tips blog series. This episode talks about memory management. Vulkan offers another key difference to OpenGL with respect to memory allocation. When it comes to managing memory allocations as well as assigning it to individual resources, the OpenGL driver does most of the work for the developer. This allows applications to be developed, tested and deployed very quickly. In Vulkan however, the programmer takes responsibility meaning that many operations that OpenGL orchestrates heuristically can be orchestrated based on an absolute knowledge of the resource lifecycle.

EGL Eye: OpenGL Visualization without an X Server

• Tags:

This post by Peter Messmer on the NVIDIA Parallel Forall blog provides the basic steps to create a (full) OpenGL context using EGL in a headless environment, with code examples. EGL context creation is particularly relevant for accelerated rendering on HPC systems or in a cloud environment, where context management via X11 is often times impractical. Applications include in situ visualization and CUDA/OpenGL interoperation.
