OpenGL Headline News
Around 2 years in development experimental real-time ray tracing, with polygons and OpenGL 4.6. Used mostly compute shaders. However, the project is very actively changing and developing. At moment in refactoring stage.
In early August the Khronos team was at SIGGRAPH in Los Angeles, where we celebrated OpenGL’s 25th anniversary at the BOF Blitz Party. We also announced a new website, as well as OpenGL 4.6, a growing glTF ecosystem, and the Vulkan Portability Initiative. Learn more about BOF Blitz.
The Khronos Group has updated the Birds of a Feather schedule and speaker list. If you will be at #SIGGRAPH2017 be sure to visit the BOF Blitz and After Party! BOFs include: OpenVX, NNEF, OpenCL and SYCL; COLLADA; glTF; WebGL; OpenXR; and Vulkan, OpenGL & OpenGL ES to wrap up the day. glTF has just posted their list of speakers, and what a line they have for you in store for you. At the end of the day, be sure to hang around for the BOF Blitz After-Party. The BOFs will be live streamed with video available afterwards, and t-shirts available online, for all those folks not attending.
Khronos wants to hear from you; what you see as important in the industry, developments, trends, tips, and new practices from your perspective. Learn more about what’s involved and how to contact us to submit your blogs.
GPU Caps Viewer 1.33.0 adds the support of some recent GPUs and fixes a crash in Vulkan demos with recent NVIDIA and AMD graphics drivers. All Vulkan code has been recompiled with latest Vulkan headers (v1.0.42). GPU Caps Viewer is a graphics card information utility focused on the OpenGL, Vulkan, OpenCL and CUDA API level support of the main graphics card.
