PowerVR SDK v3.5 is live, adds support for Android Extension Pack

PowerVR SDK v3.5 marks our first release for 2015 and is now live on our community page. We’ve made some significant improvements to several of the utilities and the SDK. In this release, support has been added to PVRVFrame for Android Extension Pack (AEP) as well as new hardware profiles including the Google Nexus Player, Dell Venue 8 3840, Lenovo K900 and Onda V972. In PVRTune, a new set of counters has been defined for the PowerVR Series6 family to make both high-level and low-level analysis easier. Additionally, the counters are now categorized under Overview, GPU Advanced, Renderer, Shader for simplified navigation.

New Mali GPU developer tools released

New release: OpenGL ES Emulator v2.2 with Android Extension Pack
The OpenGL ES Emulator now supports all the extensions in the Android Extension Pack. The emulator can be used on Windows and Linux to run applications using all the versions of OpenGL ES from 2.0 to 3.1, including many extensions (it also includes an EGL emulator).

3D-Tech News Around The Web / NVIDIA PostWorks TXAA 2.F
« on: Today at 04:58:39 PM »
NVIDIA PostWorks TXAA is a film-style anti-aliasing technique designed specifically to reduce temporal aliasing.

NVIDIA PostWorks consists of different post process technologies, e.g. TXAA is a new film style anti aliasing technique designed specifically to reduce temporal aliasing (crawling and flickering seen in motion when playing games). TXAA has improved spatial filtering over standard 2xMSAA and 4xMSAA. For example, on fences or foliage and in motion, TXAA starts to approach and sometimes exceeds the quality of other high end professional anti aliasing algorithms.

Pre-compiled sample crashed with GTX 750 Ti, i guess some API is missing in Vista :P

Geometry instancing with WebGL 2

WebGL, based on OpenGL ES, brings hardware accelerated OpenGL to your browser, and version 2.0 is around the corner...
WebGL 2.0 adds some interesting new features, with geometry instancing being one of them, so I sat down and wrote a small demo that shows how to render the same instance of a single mesh with differing shader attributes using instancing and only one drawcall

CryEngine Gets Its First DirectX 12 Game at BUILD 2015

King of Wushu, earmarked to be the first DX12 title in China, is also the first CryEngine-based game to take advantage of the next-generation graphics API.
It took just two engineers just six weeks to port King of Wushu from DirectX 11 to DirectX 12, and its performance improvements are stunning.

DirectX 12 Multiadapter: Lighting up dormant silicon and making it work for you

Are you one of the millions of PC users with a laptop or a desktop system with an integrated GPU as well as a discrete GPU?  Before Windows 10 and DirectX 12, all the performance potential from the second GPU goes unused.  With DirectX 12 and Windows 10, application developers can use every GPU on the system simultaneously!
We used Epic Games’ DX12 Unreal Engine 4 to split the rendering workload across an integrated Intel GPU and a discrete NVIDIA GPU to showcase how it is possible to use two disparate GPUs simultaneously to maximize performance.

Square Enix, Microsoft, NVIDIA Point Way Through Uncanny Valley at Microsoft BUILD

Game Companies Speed Up Development with Intel® Sample Code

All game developers from indie to lifetime professional will, at some point, benefit from code that someone else wrote. Whether it is to understand a new feature, fix a previously unsolvable problem, or saving time rather than writing it from the ground up, permissively licensed sample code is an invaluable tool. Intel provides a wealth of game sample code at the Game Developer section of the Intel® Developer Zone.

Over the past few years, Intel has worked with many game developers to optimize the performance of their games on Intel® hardware. Our engagements often produce insights or functions that should be shared with the world in the form of sample code. Sometimes we create the samples based on requirements from developers to perfectly fit their needs. In the past few years, samples we’ve created have been adapted for use in games published by Blizzard and Codemasters – specifically Adaptive Volumetric Shadow Maps (AVSM), Conservative Morphological Anti-Aliasing (CMAA), and Software Occlusion Culling.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / AMD CodeXL 1.7 is here
« on: April 29, 2015, 04:56:09 PM »
Spring time – the flowers are blooming, the bees are buzzing, and we have a new AMD CodeXL release to show off what we’ve been working on through the winter.
So here is what’s new in CodeXL 1.7.

Beta-level support for Microsoft Windows® 10 Technical Preview
CodeXL 1.7 is the first CodeXL release to support the new operating system from Microsoft. All CodeXL functions are enabled, but this is still a beta-level feature as Microsoft is regularly releasing  new builds of Windows 10.

New version of OpenGL Extensions Viewer is now available : 4.3.5
 - Display CPU Information improved (Model, Family and Architecture Name).
 - Fixed OpenGL 3.0 rendering test.
 - Support for Bindless Graphics (requires nVidia, in rendering tests)
 - Other bug fixes and improveds

Doesn't yet support "forward context 4.5"

If you have Windows 10 (technical preview 2) installed, get it from Windows update.
If not get it from here and copy runtime files manually.
