3D-Tech News Around The Web / Quake 2 Realtime GPU Pathtracer
« Last post by JeGX on Today at 12:18:33 PM »
Quote
This is a from-scratch GPU-based pathtracer created specifically for Quake 2. It has several optimisations which are only viable due to the typical characteristics of Quake 2 such as support for parallogram-shaped lightsources, BSP ray traversal, and special handling of sky 'surfaces' (portals). It doesn't officially have a name, but you can call it Raylgun.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / Tor Browser 6.0 released

The Tor software protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location, and it lets you access sites which are blocked.

The Tor Browser lets you use Tor on Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux without needing to install any software. It can run off a USB flash drive, comes with a pre-configured web browser to protect your anonymity, and is self-contained (portable).

The ShadowFX library provides a scalable and GCN-optimized solution for deferred shadow filtering. Currently the library supports uniform and contact hardening shadow (CHS) kernels.
Version 2.0 of the library now supports both DirectX® 11 and DirectX® 12. The ShadowFX API is unified across D3D11 and D3D12, allowing an easy transition to D3D12. Samples are provided for both D3D11 and D3D12 versions.

Prerequisites for DirectX 12
  • AMD Radeon™ GCN-based GPU (HD 7000 series or newer)
    • Or other DirectX® 12 compatible discrete GPU with Shader Model 5 support
  • 64-bit Windows® 10
  • Visual Studio® 2015[/l][/l]
Demo didn't knock my socks off...
