Vulkan becomes world’s first graphics application programming interface (API) to support a formal memory model for optimization progressive performance in parallel processing on GPUs.
Akiko Ashley covers the recent SIGGRAPH computer graphics show from Vancouver, noting the highlight announcements in 3D software and VR/AR/MR technologies along with key hardware from Nvidia.
Hybrid rendering fundamentally changes computer graphics by fusing Real-Time Ray Tracing with AI, Simulation, and Rasterization.
The Bulgarian software developer gives the world its first look at ‘Project Lavina’ — a new rendering technology rendering up to 90 frames per second on twin Quadro RTX cards.
Top line performance boosts using Intel’s Coffee Lake processors with up to 6 cores, plus iPad Pro and iMac Pro features aim this generation more firmly at Mac Professsionals.
Gaming hardware specialist Razer has a new eGPU for the Mac audience in the new Core X.
Continuing our coverage from the 2018 NVIDIA GTC Conference, Akiko Ashley profiles how CannonDesign—one of the architectural presenters at the GTC—utilizes NVIDIA GPU Technology across a range of virtualized desktop infrastructure and workstations powering everything from Revit to Unreal.
NVIDIA’s GPU Technology Conference (GTC) has rapidly become a must-attend event for those on the leading edge of technology. Beyond graphics, GPUs are powering and transforming Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning, VR/AR/MR (realities) across a broad array of fields.
At this year’s SIGGRAPH show returned to Los Angeles, the show gained momentum in the midst of the burgeoning VR/AR explosion happening across various 3D industries as well as foundational shifts happening at the developer level as game engines grow more important and low-level graphics APIs bloom further. Lurking in the background of this year’s SIGGRAPH is AMD’s resurgence as well as Apple’s promised return to pro markets at the workstation level.
Chaos Group announces new benchmarking app to test GPU and CPU strength—new benchmark will join tools like Maxon’s Cinebench.
Consortium releases Vulkan features, WebGL 2.0 and new OpenXR working group; group hosts series of events for the developer community.
Nvidia looks to be playing a key role in future Macs—new Nvidia Mac OS X centric job posts indicate Apple may be moving away from AMD in favor of what Nvidia is doing with AI with GPU compute.
Apple loves sexy thin…as in your computer! But these systems come with a steep price in thermal enclosure design, and access to today’s leading GPUs necessary for the Virtual Reality revolution.
Esri and NVIDIA pair on new virtualization solution for GIS users and professionals utilizing VMware Sphere 6 technology and Dell rack-mount 3D workstation hardware. The solution benefits field users who need access to GIS data.
Khronos Group makes further positive momentum with Vulkan API, but Apple is missing from the roster of industry supporters. This is an early signal that Apple may be pushing for Metal for Mac’s graphic future as aging OpenGL lingers as available cross-platform API.
