Update: The webinars from GDC are now available for viewing online here. Get your hands dirty and experience the latest and greatest tools for modern game development. Join us at GDC'14 for a set of hands-on labs, using content and technology from Croteam's Serious Sam 3, to learn the skills required to debug and optimize your game title for the latest gaming hardware for Desktop and Android. Multiple sessions are scheduled each day and each lab runs approximately 80 minutes.
In this presentation, Cass Everitt and John McDonald talk about some newer extensions to OpenGL and how they can reduce (or even eliminate) driver overhead. We'll discuss where performance goes, fundamentals of the graphics driver stack and specific GL extensions--such as Bindless rendering and MultiDraw commands.
By now you’ve probably heard about the Tegra K1. A family of power efficient SOCs that leverage the same Kepler GPU technology used in GeForce and Tesla graphics cards for mobile. The white paper goes over the SOC in more detail.
Last night, ahead of this year’s International Consumer Electronics Show, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang introduced Tegra K1. The fifth-generation of NVIDIA’s Tegra line of mobile processors, it’s the first mobile SoC to support next-gen graphics capabilities. It does so by unleashing 192 Kepler graphics cores. These are the exact same cores used in GeForce graphics cards and Tesla supercomputer accelerators.
The International Consumer Electronics Show begins next week in Las Vegas, and we’re getting an early start. We’re holding a press event on Sunday at 8 pm Pacific Time. Tune in: we’ll be live blogging the event, here, and serving up a live video feed through Twitch.tv.
