Download updated archive with 250 demos here

in future resolution will be 800x480 ;)

also fragment shaders will start with
#define fragColor gl_FragColor
#define fragCoord gl_FragCoord
to avoid annoying editing, i.e. only mainImage left over

some WIP shaders:

Awesome Star - NVIDIA only, AMD complains about a float command
Nightfall - compiles, but fails to render most stuff
Juggler spinoff - has 2 entry points mainText and mainImage, don't know what to do with that

Some other shaders had to be fixed because of using reserved words like "char" or "case"

 Award-winning PowerVR GR6500 ray tracing GPU tapes out   

For those who haven’t kept track of our ray tracing solution, the PowerVR GR6500 GPU is the culmination of eight years of effort from a global team of designers. The technology was originally conceived at Caustic Graphics, a startup with a vision for interactive ray tracing, going against twenty years of industry momentum.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / (WebGL) Kessler syndrome

Real-time space debris tracking with collision alerts

Quote from: Wikipedia
The Kessler syndrome (also called the Kessler effect,[1][2] collisional cascading or ablation cascade), proposed by the NASA scientist Donald J. Kessler in 1978, is a scenario in which the density of objects in low Earth orbit (LEO) is high enough that collisions between objects could cause a cascade—each collision generating space debris that increases the likelihood of further collisions.[3] One implication is that the distribution of debris in orbit could render space exploration, and even the use of satellites, unfeasible for many generations

Changes in v5.02:
  • Fixed a serious memory leak causing rising memory usage.
  • Fixed CPU usage monitoring when System Summary window is active.
  • Some minor bugfixes and enhancements.
3D-Tech News Around The Web / General Electric GRA113D Graphics Board
« Last post by Stefan on July 20, 2015, 05:39:01 PM »
For both video and graphics generation and general purpose computing (GPGPU), the GRA113 3U VPX graphics board brings NVIDIA®’s 'Maxwell™' graphics processing power to the rugged military and aerospace market.

With 640 processing cores, single- and double-precision floating point units, improved shared memory architecture and cache hierarchy, together with faster atomic operations, the GRA113’s GM107 GPU is capable of CUDA Compute Capability v5.0.

If you ever wondered about weird named GPUs in the GeForce driver's installer file, this is one of those.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / Collaboration and Open Source at AMD: LibreOffice
« Last post by Stefan on July 20, 2015, 07:27:03 AM »
This article is part of an occasional series about what developers can do when they collaborate. AMD is a real believer in open source projects. Our developers actively contribute to and maintain a variety of open source projects, from highly optimized math libraries to… well, let’s talk about LibreOffice.

In case you haven’t heard about LibreOffice, it is an open source project that provides end users with a powerful suite of office productivity software: spreadsheet, word processor, and presentation software. You can learn all about LibreOffice here.

AMD engineers contribute to this project, for good reason. Think about what happens behind a spreadsheet calculation. There can be a huge amount of math. Writing software to take advantage of a Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) for general purpose computing is non-trivial. We know how to do it. AMD engineers wrote OpenCL™ kernels, and contributed them to the open source code base.
The goal was to accelerate the math behind spreadsheets in LibreOffice.
