3D-Tech News Around The Web / AMD Vega GPU architecture whitepaper
« Last post by JeGX on August 15, 2017, 11:17:00 AM »

Vega is the most sweeping change to AMD’s core graphics technology since the
introduction of the first GCN-based chips five years ago. The Vega
architecture is intended to meet today’s needs by embracing several
principles: flexible operation, support for large data sets, improved
power efficiency, and extremely scalable performance. Vega
introduces a host of innovative features in pursuit of this vision, which
we’ll describe in the following pages. This new architecture promises
to revolutionize the way GPUs are used in both established and
emerging markets by offering developers new levels of control,
flexibility, and scalability.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / Vulkan API specifications 1.0.58 released
« Last post by Stefan on August 14, 2017, 05:07:18 PM »

Change log for August 14, 2017 Vulkan 1.0.58 spec update:

  * Bump API patch number and header version number to 58 for this update.

Github Issues:

  * Update the <<interfaces-resources-descset,Descriptor Set Interface>>
    section to allow multiple variables with the same descriptor set/binding
    decorations, and require that all variables that are statically used
    must be consistent with the pipeline layout. Allow
    ename:VK_DESCRIPTOR_TYPE_COMBINED_IMAGE_SAMPLER to be used with texture
    and sampler variables (public issues 522, 524).

Internal Issues:

  * Replace networkx package used for extension dependency generation with a
    homegrown network dependency traverser (internal issue 713).
  * Specify in the <<interfaces-fragmentoutput, Fragment Output Interface>>
    section that if a fragment shader writes integers that cannot be
    represented in the format of the colour attachment, then the result is
    undefined (internal issue 893).
  * Separate malformed valid usage statement for
    slink:VkPipelineRasterizationStateCreateInfo into two (internal issue
    918).
  * Fix cases where the term 'pNext chain' is incorrectly used in reference
    to functions, rather than their parameters. Replace 'pNext list' with
    'pNext chain'. Fixed typo in the example code of
    +VK_KHR_dedicated_allocation+ (internal issue 944).
  * Fix typo in elink:VkExternalSemaphoreHandleTypeFlagBitsKHR enum
    descriptions, replacing
    etext:VK_EXTERNAL_SEMAPHORE_HANDLE_TYPE_FENCE_FD_BIT_KHR with
    ename:VK_EXTERNAL_SEMAPHORE_HANDLE_TYPE_SYNC_FD_BIT_KHR, and make the
    description more consistent with
    VK_EXTERNAL_FENCE_HANDLE_TYPE_SYNC_FD_BIT_KHR (internal issue 950).

Other Issues:

  * Clarify how pipeline stage masks affect
    <<synchronization-pipeline-stages-masks, access and synchronization
    scopes>>.
  * Clarify that dedicated allocations do not allow aliasing in the
    flink:vkBindBufferMemory and flink:vkBindImageMemory valid usage
    statements.
  * Correct specification of pname:dynamicCount for push_constant token in
    slink:VkIndirectCommandsLayoutNVX.

New Extensions:

  * `VK_EXT_shader_viewport_index_layer`
