3DLabs OpenGL2.0 Support for Wildcat Realizm
3DLabs Accelerates Advanced Shader Programs With Full OpenGL 2.0 Support For Wildcat Realizm Graphics Accelerators
"3Dlabs continues to lead the workstation graphics industry in OpenGL 2.0 implementation and development," said Neil Trevett, senior vice president of market development at 3Dlabs. "Designed to accelerate the next generation of professional applications, Wildcat Realizm graphics accelerators beat the competition in raw performance and are the industry’s most comprehensive platform for OpenGL 2.0-based application development and deployment."
OpenGL is the only non-proprietary and open graphics Application Programming Interface (API), which is used by most professional graphics application developers. Released in September 2004, OpenGL 2.0 was ratified by the OpenGL Architecture Review Board (ARB), which controls the progression of the leading graphics API. Graphics professionals who use a Wildcat Realizm graphics accelerator with OpenGL 2.0 will be able to process large, complex datasets and highly realistic scenes with full 32-bit floating-point precision.
"3Dlabs led the OpenGL Shading Language effort from the beginning and was instrumental in helping us complete our latest software release, LightWorks 7.5, which brings the power of the LightWorks shading architecture and LightWorks Archive material formats to next-generation programmable graphics hardware," said Woll Newall, product manager at LightWork Design. "By sharing its OpenGL expertise with its software partners, 3Dlabs propelled the evolution of OpenGL 2.0, which has enabled LightWorks to become a practical solution for CAD software developers who want to take full advantage of the OpenGL Shading Language."
In addition to making OpenGL 2.0 drivers available for the Wildcat Realizm product family, 3Dlabs has also released several OpenGL Shading Language development tools. The tools below are available for download from the 3Dlabs Developer website at http://developer.3dlabs.com:
3Dlabs, a leading innovator in professional visual processing, supplies a broad range of graphics accelerators to Computer Aided Design (CAD), Digital Content Creation (DCC), and visual simulation professionals. Its award-winning Wildcat graphics solutions are available in industry-leading OEM workstations, in the channel through an international distributor/reseller network, and directly to end-users at 3Dlabs' online store.
