Image2D variables play a very important role in OpenCL because they use the texture caching and samplers of the GPU and thus are very suitable to store large arrays and/or data that has to be accessed very often.
The Image2D tutorial covers how to manipulate Image2Ds and how to reinterpret a vector as a Image2D variable, with useful C99 source code to retrieve vector data from a Image2D.

OpenCLTemplate 1.13 changelog
- Added support for OpenCL Image2D objects that can be loaded from Bitmaps, byte[], int[] or float[];
- (OpenCLCodeChecker) Added highlights for Image functions.

Jason Sanders is coauthor, with Edward Kandrot, of CUDA By Example: An Introduction to General-Purpose GPU Programming. When he's not putting pen to paper, Jason is a senior software engineer in NVIDIA's CUDA Platform Group, where he helped develop early releases of CUDA system software and contribute to the OpenCL 1.0 specification. On the eve of his book's release, Jason took time to talk with Dr. Dobb's.

New Features

                 This section provides information on new features found in this release of the ATI
                 Radeon™ Display Driver. These include the following:

                  ATI Eyefinity - HydraVision enhancements
                  Enhanced Pull-down detection
                  ATI CrossFireX™ technology – support for rotated displays
                  ATI Radeon GPU acceleration of VLC 1.1.1 Media Player

        ATI Eyefinity - HydraVision enhancements

                  Maximizing a window across displays will now take user defined bezel compensation
                     into account
                  Automatically adjusts window position when dragging and dropping windows to
                     ensure title bar visibility
                  Proper dialog box placement - dialogs do not cross displays, are not hidden behind
                     bezels, and can be designated to be shown on the users “preferred” display

         Enhanced Pull-down detection

                  The Pull-down detection algorithm has been enhanced for higher visual quality on
                     certain types of video content
                  Supported on the ATI Radeon™ HD 5000 Series

        ATI CrossFireX™ technology – support for rotated displays

                  This release of ATI Catalyst™ enables end users running supported ATI
                     CrossFireX™ configurations to rotate their displays (single or ATI Eyefinity display
                     configurations) and still enjoy the performance benefits of ATI CrossFireX™
                     technology

        ATI Radeon GPU acceleration of VLC 1.1.1 Media Player

                  Enables GPU acceleration of h.264 video content when using the VLC 1.1.1 Media
                     Player – delivering a better user experience by consuming less system resources
                  Supported on the ATI Radeon™ HD 5000 and ATI Radeon™ HD 4000 Series of
                     products
                  Requires VLC version 1.1.1 and later

Performance Improvements

                 The following performance gains are noticed with this release of Catalyst™ 10.7:

                  Borderlands
                      Performance increases 3-5% on ATI Radeon™ HD 5800 and ATI Radeon™ HD
                          5700 series single card and CrossFire™ configurations when anti-aliasing and
                         anisotropic filtering is enabled
                      Performance increases 3-8% on ATI Radeon™ HD 5970 single card and
                         CrossFire™ configurations when anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering is enabled
                      Performance increases 2-6% on ATI Radeon™ HD 5600 and ATI Radeon™ HD
                          5500 series single card configurations when anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering
                         is enabled
                      Performance increases 2-10% on ATI Radeon™ HD 4800 series single card and
                         CrossFire™ configurations when anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering is enabled

The NVIDIA® Tesla™ C2050 / Tesla C2070 computing processor board is a PCI Express 2.0 full-height (4.376 inches by 9.75 inches) form factor computing add-in card based on the NVIDIA Tesla T20 graphics processing unit (GPU).
This board is targeted as high-performance computing (HPC) solution for PCI Express systems.
The Tesla C2050 / Tesla C2070 is capable of running 515 GFLOPs/sec of double precision processing performance. Tesla C2050 comes standard with 3 GB of GDDR5 memory at 144 GB/s bandwidth. Tesla C2070 comes standard with 6 GB of GDDR5 memory.
Both the Tesla C2050 and Tesla C2070 can be configured by the end user to enable or disable ECC or error correcting codes that can fix single-bit errors and report double-bit errors. Enabling ECC will cause some of the memory to be used for the ECC bits so the user available memory will decrease to 2.625 GB for Tesla C2050 and 5.25 GB for Tesla C2070.

Fermi Tuning Guide Version 1.2

For CUDA Driver API applications, the use of 32-bit device code within a 64-bit host application is no longer recommended, as support for this mixed-bitness mode will be removed in CUDA 3.2.  (Note that the CUDA Runtime API already requires that the device code and host code have matching bitness.)

CUDA C Programming Guide Version 3.1.1

Removed from Sections 3.1.6 and 5.2.3 the paragraph about loading 32-bit
device code from 64-bit host code as this capability will no longer be supported
in the next toolkit release.
In Section 3.2.6.3, removed the reference to the canMapHostMemory property
and mentioned that all devices of compute capability greater than 1.0 now
support mapped page-locked host memory.
Mentioned in Section 3.2.7.1 that host   device memory copies of a memory
block of 64 KB or less are asynchronous.
Fixed the maximum size of a 3D texture reference for devices of compute
capability 2.0 (2048 instead of 4096) in Section G.1.
Updated the paragraph about __fdividef(x,y) in Section C.2.1 to clarify
behavior depending on compute capability and compilation flag.

The popular foliage middleware SpeedTree's latest version, 5.2, has just launched, bringing the total species count of broadleaves, shrubs and other plants in its library to over 125.

The new edition contains a number of new features: First, it lets developers add rolling wind effects and individual leaf motion, like the random twitch of single leaves, that can be exported via point caching for cinematics and animations. It has added a world-building toolset to its SpeedTree Modeler utility, which it says will help developers fill large areas quickly by setting the necessary number of placement rules, such as by slope, water location or the locations of other trees. In the Modeler, developers can see their changes in real-time.

Version 5.2 also adds the ability to develop and grow branches, trunks and leaves from arbitrary meshes. Finally, developers can now freely convert SpeedTree models to their chosen size and units. At the same time,the company says it's reduced the tool's memory demands by 40 percent over version 5.1.

“Version 5.2 delivers options that have been requested by both our game and animation customers,” said IDV President Michael Sechrest. "These new features ensure an even faster, more efficient path to bringing precisely-modeled, naturally-animated trees quickly to vast virtual areas.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / Blender 2.53 Beta Released
« on: July 22, 2010, 07:46:53 PM »
The Blender Foundation just released 2.53, the first ‘Beta’ of the Blender 2.5 series. While the excellent 2.50 release log  has been updated with 2.53 features, there’s no ‘changelog’ since the previous version available yet (this may follow later). What *is* clear is that lots of bugs have been fixed, there’s a new ‘addons’ system  in place and there’s been a major overhaul in the sculpting tools. Also remember that this is the version that ‘Sintel’ was produced with. Go ahead and download now, we’ll follow asap with more information!
