3D-Tech News Around The Web / AMD FirePro Technology SDK
« on: August 27, 2012, 03:17:51 PM »
AMD FirePro SDK is a repository of samples with complete source code intended for educational purpose. The base code is up to date with the latest specification and can be seen as a guideline for good coding practice, to achieve the best performance from your graphic card.

                        This document describes the environment, organization, and program state of the
                        AMD Southern Islands series of devices. It details the instruction set and the
                        microcode formats native to this family of processors that are accessible to
                        programmers and compilers.

                        The document specifies the instructions (including the format of each type of
                        instruction) and the relevant program state (including how the program state
                        interacts with the instructions). Some instruction fields are mutually dependent;
                        not all possible settings for all fields are legal. This document specifies the valid

                        The main purposes of this document are to:

                        1.   Specify the language constructs and behavior, including the organization, of
                            each type of instruction in both text syntax and binary format.

                        2.  Provide a reference of instruction operation that compiler writers can use to
                            maximize performance of the processor.

Fragmentarium is an open source, cross-platform IDE for exploring pixel based graphics on the GPU.

It is inspired by Adobe's Pixel Bender, but uses GLSL, and is created specifically with fractals and generative systems in mind.


    Multi-tabbed IDE, with GLSL syntax highlighting
    User widgets to manipulate parameter settings
    High-resolution (tile) renderings
    Progressive rendering, for high quality AA, and distributed ray tracing.
    HDR (RGBE .HDR) support and tone mapping
    Support for simple animations
    Modular GLSL programming - include other fragments
    More than 100 examples, including 3D fractals (Mandelbulb, Mandelbox, Quaternion, Kaleidoscopic IFS), 2D fractals (Mandelbrots, Ducks, spherical Julias), Heightmaps, Knots and Hyperbolic Tesselations.

Liquids are one phase of fluids in that that they take the shape of their container on all sides but one. This article explains how to turn polyhedra inside out to make containers. It also demonstrates one way to use lock-free atomic operations, exposed through Intel® Threading Building Blocks (Intel® TBB), to allow thread-safe parallelization.

This article—the 14th in a series—adds rudimentary containers to the fluid particle system described earlier.

Sundog Software, LLC has enabled realistic time of day effects and 3D clouds in games and simulations, with the launch of Android support in its SilverLining Sky, 3D Cloud, and Weather Software Development Kit. SilverLining for Android brings the same sky simulation technology already popular with PC developers to handheld devices.

Be patient, depending on the speed of your device you will see a black screen for a while.
