In this article you'll gain valuable insight into how to exploit the capabilities of the new 256-bit instructions from the Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel® AVX).
These instructions are part of the new microarchitecture found in the 2nd Gen Intel® Core™ Processor Family (code-named Sandy Bridge). Starting from a humble, non-tuned "release mode" compilation and progressing to the full 256-bit Intel® AVX version, you'll read how code performance improves by more than an order of magnitude.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / Merry Christmas using OpenCL OpenGL Interop
« on: December 13, 2010, 06:33:12 PM »
Quote
We at CMSoft would like to share with everyone our best wishes. To do so, we have created a new OpenCL OpenGL Interop example showing how to manipulate vertex coordinates and element indexes of OpenGL VBOs to create a derivation of the Sierpinski Gasket, which is a Sierpinski Tetrahedron.

This video shows CMSoft's OpenCL "Christmas tree".

Download the sample code here.

For some reason it runs only on my ATI/Win7 rig



but fails on my Vista/NVIDIA rig, i don't have a "cloo" why  ::)

3D-Tech News Around The Web / Introduction to OpenCL
« on: December 12, 2010, 08:19:31 AM »

Despite its flaws, OpenCL holds great promise as an open, compatible and standards based approach to parallel computing on GPUs and other alternative devices. At present though, OpenCL is still in the very early stages with limited hardware and software. However, it has broad support throughout the PC and embedded ecosystems, and is just starting down the path to maturity as a common API for software developers. Judging by history though, OpenCL and DirectCompute will eventually come to dominate the landscape, just as OpenGL and DirectX became the standards for graphics.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / dEQP-Mini OpenGL ES 2.0 benchmark for Android
« on: December 10, 2010, 10:09:11 PM »
Quote
dEQP-Mini includes use case tests for rendering approaches that are commonly used by game developers, as well as feature tests that go into the details of selected OpenGL ES 2.0 shader operations. Although it contains only a small subset of the tests included in the commercial product (and none of the debugging and analysis tools) dEQP-Mini provides an easy way to learn more about the quality of the graphics support in your device.

Details:

    * Around 400 OpenGL ES 2.0 tests (a fraction of the tests in the full version of dEQP)
    * Use case tests including combinations of shadow mapping, vertex skinning, blending, alpha testing and post processing effects.
    * Feature tests touching on the shader compiler pre-processor, loops, user-defined functions, array indexing, basic operators and built-in functions.

System requirements:

    * Android 2.1 or later
    * ARM9, ARM11 or Cortex-A CPU
    * HVGA (480x320) screen resolution or higher
    * OpenGL ES 2.0 support
    * SD card for temporary storage during benchmarking

Unfortunately i have no Android cell phone yet.

How do I create a DirectX .NET application in Visual Studio 2010? I can’t find Microsoft.DirectX to add to my project but I have the DirectX SDK (June 2010) release installed.

Chuck Walbourn from MS has the answer.

Recent driver for Cayman GPUs (and other desktop GPUs with unified shaders).
Again, don't get fooled by timestamps and version numbers: this driver doesn't support OpenGL 4.1 (you can overwrite atioglxx.dll with that from 8.80 EDG)

Here are the magic numbers for ZoomGPU etc.

The Need for Multiprocessing

Mobile devices perform a wide variety of tasks such as Web browsing, video playback, mobile
gaming, SMS text messaging, and location-based services. Due to the growth in the availability
of high speed mobile and Wi-Fi networks, mobile devices will also be used for various
performance-intensive tasks that were previously handled by traditional PCs.
...
NVIDIA Tegra is the only mobile processer that not only has a dual core SMP capable CPU but
also a console class Ultra Low Power (ULP) GeForce™ GPU. The architecture of the GPU in
the Tegra processor is similar to that of desktop GeForce GPUs and therefore games that were
originally developed for SMP-capable desktop CPUs and desktop GPU architectures can be
easily ported to run on NVIDIA Tegra and will deliver the best gameplay experience on Tegra
based mobile devices. Table 1 shows some of the popular game engines and the number of
threads used by each engine.   

Game/Engine         Number of Threads
Unreal Engine 3     4+
Id Tech 5           6+
Frostbite           14
Civilization 5      2
Mafia 2             4
Crysis              8
Uncharted 2         8
Killzone 2          8+

3D-Tech News Around The Web / Microsoft DXWEBSETUP Update
« on: December 01, 2010, 04:34:39 PM »

We’ve republished the June 2010 DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer, which now shows a release date of “11/30/2010”. This deploys all the same binaries as the June 2010 version, but the setup itself has been updated to resolve a few key issues.

For the June 2010 DirectX SDK release, we switched over to the Visual C++ 2010 compiler toolset which generates binaries that are not compatible with Windows XP RTM, Windows XP Service Pack 1, or Windows Server 2003 RTM. Attempts to run the installer on these older versions of Windows resulted in a strange error about a missing EncodePointer() entry-point in KERNEL32.DLL. This updated installer will now display an error about that version not being supported. Windows XP RTM, Windows XP Service Pack 1, and Windows Server 2003 RTM along with Windows 2000, Windows 98, and Windows ME are not supported by the current DirectX End-User Runtime Installers. See "Not So DirectSetup" for more information about the state of DirectSetup.

There’ve been several long-standing international font display issues in the End-User Runtime installer, particularly for languages that do not make use of Codepage 1252 (Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Czech, Japanese, Korean, Polish, and Russian). This has been corrected for most of the dialogs and prompts, although some problems persist in the status strings due to limitations of the underlying install technology. This ensures the EULA and the dialog UI is displayed correctly on all supported languages on Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 with the appropriate language pack installed.

The .NET 4.0 Runtime has deprecated the GetCORVersion() entry-point, and the Managed DirectX 1.1 installation would trigger an error message if the system had .NET 4.0 but did not also have the .NET 1.1 or 2.0 Runtime available. This case was limited to Windows XP machines as Windows Vista and Windows 7 both include .NET 2.0. With this update, the error message is no longer triggered. Note that Managed DirectX 1.1 is not compatible with .NET 4.0, so it will not get installed on systems that only have the .NET 4.0 Runtime available.

We are currently evaluating when we might update the DirectX End-User Runtimes (stand-alone) with these fixes.

In addition to correcting these issues, the DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer will offer users the option to install the Bing™ Bar for non-Server versions of Windows if it is not already installed.
