Device fission is an addition to the OpenCL* specification that gives more power and control to OpenCL programmers over managing which computational units execute OpenCL commands. Fundamentally, device fission allows the sub-dividing of a device into one or more sub-devices, which, when used carefully, can provide a performance advantage, especially when executing on CPUs.

The newly released Intel® SDK for OpenCL* Applications 2012 is a comprehensive software development environment for OpenCL applications on 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processor family-based platforms. This SDK also provides developers with the ability to develop and target OpenCL applications on Intel CPUs of previous generations using both the Windows* and Linux* operating systems.

The Escape Short movie

Our first short movie.

Just a nice short CG movie  :)

Here are some screenshots from the benchmark the NVIDIA boss talked about at NGF Shanghai, release is scheduled for May.

EDIT: someone already posted the video at Youtube

Cloth moving in the wind, electrical sparks

Explosions with particles and shockwave (look at he tower in the background)

Dark Meadow: The Pact – Live The Nightmare on NVIDIA Tegra 3
Ever had one of those nightmares from which you couldn’t wake up? You twist and turn through narrow halls facing unimaginable horrors, hoping only to wake up from this terrifying phantasm. Only this is no nightmare, it’s all too real. That’s how it goes in the latest Tegra 3 gaming title, Dark Meadow.

Direct Playstore link

This is the second Android game powered with Unreal Engine in 2 years (as opposed to Unity3D where you see a dozen new games each week)

Briefly it's a horror game is like "Silent Hill", the most scary thing though is the german localization  :P

3D-Tech News Around The Web / TechPowerUp OSD Server: new beta build

TechPowerUp OSD Server: new beta build

Over the last weeks I've been secretly working on reviving this project.
Added the ability to select any font from the system and customize colors etc.
It will enable the OSD in all 32-bit DirectX games (no OpenGL, no 64-bit).
You can change settings by clicking the icon in the systray.
If you have GPU-Z running it will pick up the GPU-Z sensors and add them to the OSD

The video is now available at

At first they show a new game "Passion leads army" (if i understood the title correctly) which claims to be the "most advanced PhysX game ever".

Then they talk about Crysis 3 engine and a new technology "Geforce experience"

Finally they expose GTX690 and give one away.

Performance Perfected: Introducing the GeForce GTX 690

The new GeForce GTX 690 is NVIDIA's flagship graphics card. Powered by two Kepler GPUs, it’s both a record setter in 3D performance and incredibly power efficient. In fact, the GeForce GTX 690’s performance is almost identical to a pair of GeForce GTX 680s in SLI, but with significantly reduced power and noise.

At a MSRP of $999, it's not a graphics card for everyone. But for enthusiasts who demand the very best and gamers who want a graphics card that will last for generations, the GeForce GTX 690 represents the ultimate in gaming from NVIDIA.
