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.


This presentation covers:

  • Dynamic Buffer Generation
  • Efficient Texture Management
  • Techniques for Increasing Draw Call Counts
