3D-Tech News Around The Web / Vulkan SDK 1.0.49 Released
« on: May 19, 2017, 06:56:39 PM »
  This SDK supports Vulkan API revision 1.0.49.  The prior SDK supported Vulkan API revision 1.0.46.

Drivers: LunarG recommends that you update your Vulkan-capable hardware drivers to the latest recommended version from your hardware vendor.  A list of Known Driver Issues appears at the end of this document with more information.
SDK Libraries have moved -- As of the 1.0.42 SDK, the SDK library files were moved out of <VK_SDK_PATH>/bin into <VK_SDK_PATH>/lib for 64-bit libraries and <VK_SDK_PATH>/lib32 for 32-bit libraries. This will require you to update your project files to point to the proper location if you are updating from an older SDK.  The change was performed to avoid 32-bit compatibility issues.
Valid Usage ID Changes Coming -- Starting with the next major SDK release the valid usage identification numbers will be changed to accomodate the official valid usage ID management process, presumeably for the final time. If you are currently using these IDs to filter messages or for debugging purposes they will need to be remapped.

The studio of Blender Institute releases ambitious three-minute teaser for full-length animated feature based on Dutch artist Martin Lodewijk’s classic comics

Amsterdam, Netherlands (May 15, 2017) – It has created a string of award-winning shorts, raised over a million dollars in crowdfunding, and helped to shape development of the world’s most popular 3D application. But now Blender Institute has embarked on its most ambitious project to date. The studio has just released Agent 327: Operation Barbershop: a three-minute animation based on Martin Lodewijk’s cult comics, and co-directed by former Pixar artist Colin Levy – and the proof of concept for what it hopes will become a major international animated feature created entirely in open-source software.

  • Fixed a bug that caused the GLX_EXT_buffer_age buffer age extension to return incorrect values for stereo drawables when using passive stereo modes 5 through 9.
  • Fixed a bug in Vulkan direct to display where DP1.2 monitors were not being enumerated.
  • Improved compatibility with recent kernels.
  • Fixed a bug that caused "nvidia-settings --query all" to print many duplicate entries.
  • Fixed a bug that caused applications to crash in some situations when calling glXMakeCurrent while OpenGL threaded optimizations were enabled. This frequently occurred when Steam was attempting to make a video appear full-screen.
  • Fixed a bug that caused VDPAU applications to use the blit presentation queue when a previous VDPAU application didn't shut down cleanly.
  • Fixed hangs and crashes that could occur when an OpenGL context is created while the system is out of available memory.
  • Fixed a bug that caused corruption when OpenGL windows were moved or resized.
  • Fixed a bug that caused X screens that use Option "UseDisplayDevice" "none" to be resized to 640x480 when using "xrandr -s" to change the screen configuration.
  • Fixed a kernel crash that occurred when attempting to map large user memory allocations into CUDA.
  • Disabled OpenGL threaded optimizations by default, initially enabled in 378.09, due to various reports of instability.
  • Added support for the following Vulkan extensions:
    • VK_EXT_acquire_xlib_display
      VK_EXT_display_control
      VK_EXT_display_surface_counter
      VK_EXT_direct_mode_display
      VK_KHX_external_memory
      VK_KHX_external_memory_fd
      VK_KHX_external_semaphore
      VK_KHX_external_semaphore_fd
    These extensions require a Vulkan loader version >= 1.0.42.
  • Removed the X driver's logo splash screen and the corresponding NoLogoand LogoPath xorg.conf options.
  • Added the "ResamplingMethod" MetaMode option, adding support for bicubic resampling methods when scaling screen transformations are in use.  See the README for more details.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / NVIDIA GameWorks Flow - in DX12
« on: April 22, 2017, 03:25:07 AM »
NVIDIA Flow is a realtime fluid simulation - in this demo, simulating fire and smoke. The simulation is based on an adaptive sparse voxel grid, allowing the simulation to focus compute and memory resources around regions of interest, and track shifts in the region of interest over time.

With the fire, the combustion process is simulated per voxel, generating elevated temperatures and smoke, which influences the visual appearance and produces buoyancy and expansion effects on the fluid simulation.

An adaptive sparse voxel grid is also used to compute self-shadowing on the smoke, increasing both the realism and visualizing the structure of the smoke. The fluid simulation supports real time collision with objects in the environment, along with fuel emitters than can be modified in real time, making the simulation fully interactive.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / Microsoft - Introducing Power Throttling
« on: April 19, 2017, 06:04:49 PM »
Most people running Windows like having multiple apps running at the same time – and often, what’s running in the background can drain your battery. In this latest Insider Preview build (Build 16176), we leveraged modern silicon capabilities to run background work in a power-efficient manner, thereby enhancing battery life significantly while still giving users access to powerful multitasking capabilities of Windows. With “Power Throttling”, when background work is running, Windows places the CPU in its most energy efficient operating modes – work gets done, but the minimal possible battery is spent on that work.
...
Developer note: Power throttling is designed to work well with applications out of the box, but we recognize that in some cases, application developers may be able to provide additional power savings by having more fine-grained control over Power Throttling. We will have APIs to provide more fine grained control in upcoming flights. Please make sure to watch out for API updates on MSDN.
