AMD releases the FirePro 2270 GPU

Jan 31, 2011 | Categories: Processors | Comments

AMD just released two new FirePro GPUs. The FirePro 2270 using only 15W at full load fully supports OpenGL 4.1. Designed for professional use in CAD workstations and rendering systems, the budget-end FirePro 2270 card has a low-profile design, passive cooler, and is intended to replace the actively-cooled FirePro 2250.

GLM 0.9.0.7 update released

An in-depth introduction to OpenGL in three parts

Jan 31, 2011 | Categories: Developers | Comments

An in-depth introduction to OpenGL and OpenGL ES is underway on db Interactively blog. First up is coverage for the basic concepts of #D and OpenGL for beginners. Next up, though not online yet, will be OpenGL ES 2.0 in depth, with the promise of lots of code, followed by advanced OpenGL ES 2.0 and 3D.

3D Fluid Simulation with GLSL

Jan 24, 2011 | Categories: Developers | Comments

The Little Grasshopper now has a demo showing how to perform Eulerian-based fluid simulation with 3D textures and OpenGL 3.1+.

3D Shape generator using OpenGL3 and OpenCL

Jan 21, 2011 | Categories: Developers | Comments

The Belgian scientist Johan Gielis discovered a mathematical formula to describe many shapes existing in nature. This formula is called the “Super Formula”. To demonstrate GPGPU and to show that it can be used for many purposes including simply having some fun, we developed the “SuperShaper”. A tool that uses OpenCL to create very high-detail 3D models using the Super Formula.

Drishti - OpenGL based volume exploration and presentation tool updated

Jan 18, 2011 | Categories: Developers | Comments

An update for Drishti is available for download at the google code site. Drishti works on GPUs having OpenGL 2.0 capability. The update includes many newer additions such as unlimited Undo/Redo facility, inbuilt help for various dialogs and panels, modulate color and opacity for one volume based on other volumes, reslicing volume at different orientation, color legends, thickness profile and much more. Drishti allows scientists visualize and explore volumetric datasets.

Mesa supports more OpenGL 3.0 extensions

Jan 18, 2011 | Categories: Developers | Comments

Support for GL_ARB_draw_instanced, GL_ARB_instanced_arrays, GL_ARB_draw_buffers_blend and GL_EXT_texture_sRGB_decode has been added to Mesa. Much work is yet to be done!

Equalizer 1.0-alpha delivers scalability and flexibility for OpenGL applications

Jan 14, 2011 | Categories: Applications | Comments

Equalizer is the standard framework to create and deploy parallel, scalable OpenGL applications. Collage is a cross-platform C++ library for building heterogenous, distributed applications, used as the cluster backend for the Equalizer. This release is intended for application developers to provide feedback and preview the Equalizer 1.0 release. Please check the release notes on the Equalizer website for a comprehensive list of new features, enhancements, optimizations and bug fixes.

RTGU 3d technical demonstration released

Jan 13, 2011 | Categories: Developers | Comments

A technical demonstration showing an interactive virtual model of an hotel lobby, is available for download. RTGU is a realtime 3d rendering pipeline - composed of a set of tools, ranging from 3d content export/conversion to realtime 3d rendering using OpenGL. The model is completely designed using 3dsMax and V-Ray, then exported and lit using RTGU tools, and rendered using OpenGL 3.x features : rendering uses FBO to do HDR rendering in RGBA16F textures ; tone mapping relies on ARB_texture_multisample extension to resolve MSAA ; linear rendering is achieived by using sRGB textures and framebuffers ; lighting is stored in HDR textures (2D/3D) as lightmaps and spherical harmonics.
