GPUBench benchmarking of programmable graphics hardware for OpenGL API shader programs

Oct 06, 2004 | Categories: Processors | Comments

GPUBench is a benchmark suite designed to analyze the performance of programmable graphics processors in areas of particular importance to general purpose computation. Included in the suite are tests that rigorously exercise a system’s GPU, determining statistics such as memory input/output bandwidth to floating point buffers, texture cache bandwidth, data download and readback rates, instruction throughput, and instruction precision. Information included in GPUBench reports is useful in accurately estimating the performance of OpenGL shader programs as well as determining if a particular GPU is a viable target platform for a particular computation.

Croquet uses OpenGL API for 3D visualization with massively multi-user peer-to-peer collaboration

Oct 04, 2004 | Categories: Developers | Comments

Croquet is a combination of computer software and network architecture that supports deep collaboration and resource sharing among large numbers of users within the context of a large-scale distributed information system. Along with its ability to deliver compelling 3D visualization and simulations, the Croquet system’s components are designed with a focus on enabling massively multi-user peer-to-peer collaboration and communication.  Croquet utilizes an OpenGL API-based graphics engine and a semi-retained graphical engine pipeline, with a rendering hierarchy based upon dynamically composeable objects, with each of these objects having full access to the OpenGL API libraries. Developers have the ability to make direct calls to the OpenGL library at any of the nodes making it possible for them to extend the rendering engine in virtually unlimited ways.

HVox terrain engine uses OpenGL fragment shaders

Oct 01, 2004 | Categories: Applications | Comments

The HVox terrain engine is unique from other engines because it can render arbitrary terrain with caves and overhangs. The approach is based on Voxels in combination with continous level of detail. The engine uses OpenGL Fragment and Vertex shaders, so at least a GeforceFX or Radeon 9600 are required.
