It wasn’t an announcement of a next-gen game, but rather an impressive technology demo of what Square Enix’s games will look like in the next generation.

After the show floor closed for the day, Square Enix shared a three-minute trailer on its huge screen of Luminous Studio, its next generation engine for creating video games. Yoshihisa Hashimoto, chief technology officer for Square Enix, repeatedly assured that the trailer we were about to see was in real time, and not pre-rendered footage. He said it at least three times through the course of his short preamble, but once the trailer began it was obvious why he was so adamant about his real-time claims.

AMD Catalyst Driver Windows 8 Release Preview

Feature highlights of the AMD Catalyst™ feature preview driver for the Windows® 8 Release Preview

Featuring support for the new WDDM 1.2 driver model, this new driver enables customers to utilize the model’s features as applications are updated to leverage them. These features include:

    Support for the AMD Radeon™  HD 7900 Series, AMD Radeon HD 7800 Series, and the AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series.
    Native Stereo 3D support:  Windows 8 natively supports stereoscopic 3D gaming and videos via compatible applications. Middleware applications will not be required for such apps.
    Unified Video API: Video playback has been integrated into the DirectX® 11 API, enabling simultaneous video and gaming content. Transcoding performance may also be improved for supporting applications.
    Optimized screen rotation for rotation-aware devices.
    Improved sleep/resume performance.
    Optimized GPU power consumption.
    Support for AMD Features:
        AMD Eyefinity
        AMD Dual Graphics/AMD CrossFire™ Technology
        AMD Overdrive™
        AMD Catalyst Control Center/Vision Engine Control Center
AMD Catalyst 12.6 Beta Driver

With the release of the AMD Catalyst™ 12.6 Beta driver (“Catalyst”), AMD would also like to announce that we are moving away from our Monthly Catalyst release plan. Our goal is to ensure that every Catalyst release delivers a substantial benefit to our end users; as we have today with the release of the Catalyst 12.6a Beta. We will still continue with the Catalyst naming convention; Catalyst: Year.Month. You just won’t see a new driver every single month.  We are confident that this will only benefit the end user; you’ll only need to upgrade to a new Catalyst driver, when it makes sense.

We would also like to announce the introduction of our new AMD Issue Reporting Form. We made a number of improvements to the older Catalyst Crew Feedback form, making it more comprehensive, ensuring high quality feedback. Feedback is very important in every product company’s life, especially in our fast paced environment. This is not just a check-box for us – we take these reports very seriously.  We will review every report posted here and investigate every issue encountered. Please use this form whenever you encounter something worth mentioning.

It also teases the Geforce R305 driver branch (unless the screenshot with 2 different version numbers was photoshopped).

Quote from:
The very latest driver on this planet is a mobile driver and from Toshiba, miracles do happen.

Like 302.59 from CUDA5 preview this driver exposes 6 new OpenGL extensions, i'm too lazy to look them up though.
Also this driver works worse with AMD's LEO demo.

Quote from:
These came with Geforce 302.71

Brand new set, I've extracted them and have uploaded to try with other drivers.

They screwed up some links: if you catch an old sample, change the path like this

3D-Tech News Around The Web / AMD APP SDK 2.7
« on: May 18, 2012, 07:55:21 PM »
Direct downloads:

AMD APP SDK 2.7 supports development of applications using the OpenCL Specification v 1.2. As all OpenCL 1.1 APIs are Zupported within OpenCL 1.2, you also can develop OpenCL 1.1-compliant applications.

For SDK 2.7, the following values are returned when querying strings from OpenCL:

                          CL_PLATFORM_VERSION: OpenCL 1.2 AMD-APP (build.revision)
                          CL_PLATFORM_NAME: AMD Accelerated Parallel Processing
                          CL_PLATFORM_VENDOR: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.

                      •   Check the Platform Vendor string, not the Platform Name, to determine AMD hardware. For
                          example code that shows how to check and use the CL_PLATFORM_VENDOR string, see the
                         AMD APP v2 Samples.

Supported Devices

                      The following table shows the devices supported by the current version of the AMD APP SDK,

Some AMD APP SDK samples also run with IntelOpenCL (you find the latest runtimes in Intel HD Graphics Driver v2729)

This article—the thirteenth in a series—describes how to augment the fluid particle system described earlier, interact with rigid bodies with any polyhedral shape, and generate a lift-like force on those bodies.

The Imagination Engine: Why Next-Gen Video Games Will Rock Your World

The possible applications for Unreal Engine 4—augmented reality, medical simulation, even production pipelines for television and movies—seem to stretch to the horizon. At its core, however, UE4 is a videogame engine, and its first reveal outside the office is on a March morning at the 2012 Game Developers Conference.
In June, UE4 will be revealed to the gaming public...
