What extra coding is required for knl?
Could you please describe it for me?
Look at all the comments from people who have some experience with Phi.
Not a single positive...
How would you program the FPGA?
There is a lot of CUDA code out there right now. Phi+FPGA would face this sunk cost mountain and I don't see how...
Does GP102 (the one in consumer titan x) have double precision? How fast is it? 1/2 rate, 1/3 rate, 1/32 rate?
They seem to have a new tessellation path. They seem to have replaced the vertex shader with a compute kernel. And gotten rid of geometry shader...
VR might prove to be the killer app for ray tracing, with foveated rendering and all.
May be IMG's ray tracing efforts aren't doomed.
What do you think about getting rid of manual paging management and letting the GPU fetch pages from CPU memory upon a page fault, just like...
That link 404's for me
A remote rig is going to much more expensive vs an enclosure. PSU +cpu+ram+ssd+mobo+...
You make a good point about being CPU limited, especially with a 15W CPU driving a 250W GPU.
Let me make two points.
a) For me, there is a great...
Better Call Saul.
There is opportunity to ray trace only certain tiles. Practical optimization for reflection.
Hope springs eternal...
And as great as Carmack is, his endorsements mean what?
There is no business case for investing in ray tracing apps without consumers owning the...
IMGTEC cannot push ray tracing, no matter how much they want it. They sit too far from devs/users for that.
Only a soc owner with a lot of dev...
This is great. :)
It's a shame no one seems to want it since it to use ray tracing one has to re write the renderers.
Only apple seems to be in...
Slide 23 is probably unit share, instead of revenue share.
Importance of sorting draw calls by state in vulkan/dx12?
Is it still important? IMG used to recommend sorting by state changes instead of depth...
let's make that vulkan for os x, whenever vulcan is ready.
It's pointless to bet virtual beer over schedules into which I have no insight. :)
the g buffer values could be exposed as workgroup shared memory.
The space per pixel could be computed by the API. The workgroup size for such a...
I'll take you up on that.
My bet, Vulkan for os x at wwdc 2015.
Why? Mac is not a priority platform. A simpler API with most of the heavy...
Look at their patents.
As Simon said, a TBDR won't shade the fragments that fail the z test. It's performance is triangle submission order independent as long as all the...
My guess is that they woke up around 2010-2011, just after ipad killed the netbooks and the PC market started tanking. The rest, is just the usual...
My hope would be next year.
I would hope so.
AFAIK, the VoLTE should be entirely in the modem/transceiver/baseband and not in the apps processor, except as a sw.
I could be wrong about this.
The SOC TDP remains the same. hence the GPU power budget remains the same, roughly speaking. Thus any power efficiency differences convert...
If there is a 12" ipad pro with active digitizer out, I'll like it
The GPU is a validated portable synthesizable IP. How is a 4 cluster part more conservative than a 6 cluster one?
My guess would be they ran out of mem bw to feed the 6 cluster GPU. The additional area is not much and it's not like Apple can't handle a bit...
More L3 bw then?
I know this is a windows tablets thread, but since so much discussion on handwriting happens here, I think I'll pose my question here as well....
Anybody have experience of handwriting on ipads?
What's the verdict?
I saw that after I posted. It seems to me that the dual issue is at the alu vs ld/st vs sfu level, but not dual issue of ALUs instructions themselves.
AFAIK, Maxwell is not dual issue.
Because they are still selling it in developing countries.
It seems to imply on token forever.
Your existing physical cards have the same token forever and they work fine (from a security point of...
My bad, I was referring to privacy aspects here, not security.
That's not what Macworld says.
The macworld article says that there is one token per device forever.
No idea what apple said in their presentation.
The banks and the...
It's better than Google and carrier's implementation.
It's no better than existing physical cards.
If they can steal your credit card numbers they can steal your apple pay tokens. If they have them, they can use them since the tokens...
It can be, but won't be with apple pay.
Yes, but that's not the first implication one gets from it. I had to read it twice very carefully to parse...
That article is seriously misguided about the privacy bits.
There is no more privacy that using your current cards. The actual card number is...
So new graphics features beyond dx12.
They have filed patents for it though.
IMG doesn't do HSR before tessellation.
HSR obviously happens after tessellation.
My thoughts on shader programming, exactly.
We need system level programmability for this stff.
