The sample demonstrates shallow water solver implemented with the OpenCL™ technology. The Shallow Water sample relies on flux splitting method for solving the approximated Navier-Stokes equations. The algorithm operates on 2D maps of velocity and height, calculates updated maps for the next time step. The updated maps are rendered with pixel and vertex shaders (Microsoft DirectX* 10).

3D-Tech News Around The Web / NVIDIA CUDACasts Episode 18: CUDA 6.0 Unified Memory

CUDA 6 introduces Unified Memory, which dramatically simplifies memory management for GPU computing. Now you can focus on writing parallel kernels when porting code to the GPU, and memory management becomes an optimization.

The CUDA 6 Release Candidate is now publicly available. In today’s CUDACast, I will show you some simple examples showing how easy it is to accelerate code on the GPU using Unified Memory in CUDA 6, and how powerful Unified Memory is for sharing C++ data structures between host and device code.

Chrome web Browser with WebCL™ now Available for Download
WebCL™ 1.0, soon to be published by the Khronos group, is a JavaScript API providing access to OpenCL™ acceleration, a sibling to the now quite popular WebGL™ API. AMD has been working on implementing WebCL™ inside a Chrome browser, enabling web programmer access to compute acceleration, including interop between WebCL™ and WebGL™.

It seems to be incompatible with NOKIA's WebCL?

ASUS GPUTweak 2.5.7 for WinXP32/64, Win7 32/64, Win8 32/64, Win8.1 32/64

No changelog available, but it contains ROMs for unreleased GPUs.
"LN2" = liquid nitrogen or marketing goof?

AMD_LN2_P.rom - ASUS_MATRIXR9290X_DC2T_4GD5_2DIS_LN2
NV_LN2.rom - MATRIX-GTX780TI-3GD5


edit: here is a PR that explains it
Meet Your Matrix! (Pick: R9 290X or GTX 780 Ti)
"LN2 Mode / STD Mode Jumper Switch: Unleash the maximum GPU power."

3D-Tech News Around The Web / CSAA has been removed from NVIDIA Maxwell

Quote from: Manuel Guzman
I verified with our software team and indeed CSAA has been removed from Maxwell GPUs. Any mixed GPU systems that have both a Maxwell and an older NVIDIA GPU (i.e. Kepler) will also not display CSAA modes.

It’s fractal time again! Reynante M. Martinez shared this Fibonacci fractal and also offers the .blend file for download.

Reynante writes:

    I was just able to finish this piece that’s been lurking in my space for quite awhile now. During the past weekend (can’t remember which one), I had the pleasure of creating a procedurally- inspired (sort of) Blender piece, with great influence from nature and mathematics.

    Attached here is the result of that experiment.

    The .blend file is also available, giving the community a chance to tinker with it as well and would love to see what they can come up with using the technique illustrated in the file.

    Fibonacci .blend and Hi-res image download

FYI: This formula is also "used" by the Romanesco broccoli (sic!)
