AMD Publishes New OpenGL 4.4 Extensions
« on: April 04, 2014, 11:25:26 PM »
AMD published two new OpenGL extensions today that the graphics giant has developed.

Both of the new extensions are written against the OpenGL 4.4 specification.

The first extension, GL_AMD_gpu_shader_int64, for supporting 64-bit integers in an easier manner than NVIDIA's NV_gpu_shader5.

The second new AMD OpenGL extension published today 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.
