We introduce a new hardware-accelerated method for constructing Deep G-buffers that is 2x-8x faster than the previous depth peeling method and produces more stable results. We then build several high-performance shading algorithms atop our representation, including dynamic diffuse interreflection, ambient occlusion (AO), and mirror reflection effects.
 Our construction method s order-independent, guarantees a minimum separation between layers, operates in a (small) bounded memory footprint, and does not require per-pixel sorting. Moreover, addressing the increasingly expensive cost of pre-rasterization, our approach requires only a single pass over the scene geometry. Our global illumination algorithms approach the speed of the fastest screen-space AO-only techniques while significantly exceeding their quality: we capture small-scale details and complex radiometric effects more robustly than screen-space techniques, and we implicitly handle dynamic illumination conditions.  We include the pseudocode for our Deep G-buffer construction in the paper and the full source code of our technique in our supplemental document.

The binary demo contains broken shaders  :(

  Google supercharges machine learning tasks with TPU custom chip

Machine learning provides the underlying oomph to many of Google’s most-loved applications. In fact, more than 100 teams are currently using machine learning at Google today, from Street View, to Inbox Smart Reply, to voice search.
 But one thing we know to be true at Google: great software shines brightest with great hardware underneath. That’s why we started a stealthy project at Google several years ago to see what we could accomplish with our own custom accelerators for machine learning applications.
 The result is called a Tensor Processing Unit (TPU), a custom ASIC we built specifically for machine learning...
Linux 4.5 contains over 21 million lines of code. Around 4,000 developers and at least 440 different companies contribute to the kernel. There are over 10,800 lines of code added, 5,300 lines of code removed and over 1,875 lines of code modified. Every. Single. Day. That amounts to over 8 changes per second.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / AMD FireRays 2.0 SDK goes to Open Source
« Last post by JeGX on May 18, 2016, 06:15:32 PM »
FireRays is ray intersection acceleration library provided by AMD which makes the most of AMD hardware and allows for efficient ray queries independently of the generation of underlying AMD hardware.

After the success of the first version, FireRays is moving to another major milestone. We are open sourcing the entire library which allows complete integration and contribution from the entire developer community to bring improvements in the rendering world. In fact FireRays 2.0 brings support for Windows, OSX, Linux, AMD, NV, Intel GPUs and CPUs with many back-ends.

Radeon Software Crimson Edition Highlights
    • Performance increase by up to 35% on AMD Radeon R9 390 series products in Doom™ versus Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.5.2
  • Testing conducted by AMD Performance Labs as of May 16, 2016 on the AMD Radeon™ R9 390, on a test system comprising Intel i7 5960X CPU, 16GB memory, AMD RSCE 16.5.2 and AMD RSCE, Windows 10 x64 using the game Doom™.  PC Manufacturers may vary configurations, yielding different results. At 1920x1080 AMD RSCE 16.5.2 scored 70.29 and AMD RSCE scored 95.11 on the AMD Radeon™ R9 390, which is 35% faster performance.
