NVIDIA demonstrates high-end virtual reality car rendered with OpenGL

NVIDIA demonstrated at GTC Europe a high-end virtual reality demo of a complete car model.  You can explore every detail of the complete car model in virtual reality.  To accomplish this, the demo harnesses the NV_gpu_multicast OpenGL extension so two Quadro P6000 can render the left- and right-eye views in parallel and then handles the massive geometric detail with the NV_command_list OpenGL extension.

Khronos DevU in Seoul Korea: Vulkan All-day Tutorial

Khronos is pleased to present a full-day workshop on Vulkan in the upcoming DevU in Seoul, Korea. This session will go in depth into Vulkan, providing you with an important overview, then quickly diving deep beyond the basics into its use and structure, followed by a few case studies with code walkthroughs. There will be ample opportunity to speak with the instructors both during, and after the event in a social get together. This DevU session will be taught by Khronos working group members who specialize in Vulkan and who participated in its creation. Beginners are welcome, but the session is intended for experienced developers with knowledge of 3D graphics and rendering. In addition to a full day of Vulkan training, the session will include all course materials, a Vulkan Quick Reference Guide, a Vulkan t-shirt, and a buffet lunch. For more information and to register your spot, please visit the DevU session page.

Efficient GPU Rendering of Subdivision Surfaces using Adaptive Quadtrees

How does Pixar represent objects rendered in their movies?  With subdivision surfaces. Now researchers at Activision, NVIDIA, and Stanford have published a new adaptive quadtree approach to rendering subdivision surfaces on modern GPUs.  Using OpenGL tessellation shaders, their system efficiently renders subdivision surfaces by streaming the surface patches without needing to split the patches the way prior approaches, such as OpenSubdiv 3.0, operate.  Their accompanying YouTube video shows their technique rendering state-of-the-art video game assets.

The Vulkan Interview

Red Gaming Tech had an interview with Tom Olson chair of the Vulkan Working Group, and Neil Trevett President of the Khronos Group. Tom Olson commented “We’re really eager to hear from first-generation developers about what kind of experiences they are having.” Neil Trevett wrote “the rate of Vulkan adoption has been faster than any API that Khronos has ever produced.” There’s a lot of good information on many aspects of Vulkan, head on over and read The Vulkan Interview.

Khronos Establishes Advisory Panel to Create Design Guidelines for Safety Critical APIs

The Khronos Group today announced the formation of a Safety Critical Advisory Panel to create guidelines for the design of safety critical graphics, compute and vision processing APIs. The Safety Critical Advisory Panel will be open to both Khronos members and invited experts from the industry. Markets such as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), autonomous vehicles, robotics and avionics increasingly need advanced acceleration APIs that are designed to provide reliable operation and enable system safety certification. The guidelines will be openly published and adopted as part of Khronos’ proven API design process. Experienced practitioners in the field of safety critical system design are invited to apply for Advisory Panel membership, at no cost, with more details at the Khronos Safety Critical working group page.
