AMD published two new OpenGL extensions today, both of which are written against the OpenGL 4.4 specification. The first extension, GL_AMD_gpu_shader_int64 was developed based on the NV_gpu_shader5 extension to allow implementations supporting 64-bit integers to expose the feature without the additional requirements that are present in NV_gpu_shader5. The second extension is GL_AMD_transform_feedback4. This second extension enhances OpenGL’s transform feedback in allowing multiple TF streams to be captured and allows any combination of streams to be rasterized.
