Seeing some really impressive improvements on early Vulkan drivers with native code, will win big when Unity and Unreal get support.
Twitter is building a new feature that will allow users to tweet things longer than the traditional 140-character limit, and the company is targeting a launch date toward the end of Q1, according to multiple sources familiar with the company’s plans. Twitter is currently considering a 10,000 character limit, according to these sources. That’s the same character limit the company uses for its Direct Messages product, so it isn’t a complete surprise.
NVIDIA DRIVE PX 2 allows the automotive industry to use artificial intelligence to tackle the complexities inherent in autonomous driving. It utilizes deep learning on NVIDIA's most advanced GPUs for 360-degree situational awareness around the car, to determine precisely where the car is and to compute a safe, comfortable trajectory.
Created to address the needs of NVIDIA's automotive partners for an open development platform, DRIVE PX 2 provides unprecedented amounts of processing power for deep learning, equivalent to that of 150 MacBook Pros.
Its two next-generation Tegra processors plus two next-generation discrete GPUs, based on the Pascal architecture, deliver up to 24 trillion deep learning operations per second, which are specialized instructions that accelerate the math used in deep learning network inference. That's over 10 times more computational horsepower than the previous-generation product.
The VR Ready Program will be a new branding/badging initiative from NVIDIA, that similar to past branding initiatives, is being created to label components and systems that the company considers to be VR ready. NVIDIA’s press release notes that they see a need to make it clearer to consumers which systems and components will be suitable for VR, which is why they are launching this program. Meanwhile more pragmatically speaking, this is also the latest effort by NVIDIDA to build up an ecosystem around VR and head mounted displays, as the company sees VR as a major market for high-end GPUs in 2016 and beyond.
While countless millions of us take great pleasure spending hours racking up high
scores in our favourite games, few of us are ever exposed to the delights of making them in the
first place. It’s far from easy, but learning to code your own shoot-’em-up is infinitely more satisfying
than beating any end-of-level boss.
Although this book is designed to help you learn many of the essential skills you’ll need to make
games with Python and Pygame on your Raspberry Pi, it’s by no means definitive. Frankly, you could
read a dozen books on the subject and still not have the skills you need to succeed. As with most things,
nothing replaces good old-fashioned practice. I should know: I have 30 cookery books lining my shelf
and I still burnt my toast this morning.
Making games is a brilliant way to learn to code, though, so I hope this book helps you to get started
on your next big adventure.
Oculus VR is going to make a “special announcement” this Thursday during The Game Awards, which is an annual livestreaming show that attempts to recognize excellence in game development.
