Online Diagram Software and Flowchart Software - Gliffy Data Visualization Software | Tulip Press Releases - Imagination’s PowerVR Series6 is the first mobile GPU to pass OpenCL 1.2 conformance Bringing highly efficient GPU compute to industry’s leading mobile and embedded GPU London, UK – 31st March, 2014 – Imagination Technologies (IMG.L) announces its PowerVR Series6 Rogue GPU technology is the first mobile GPU to pass OpenCL 1.2 conformance with Khronos The OpenCL 1.2 standard is an open, royalty-free standard for cross-platform, parallel programming of modern processors in a broad range of devices. PowerVR Series6 primarily targets the OpenCL 1.2 EP (Embedded Profile) specification, enabling developers to take full advantage of the rich capabilities in OpenCL 1.2 within the constraints of mobile and embedded form factors. Says Peter McGuinness, director of multimedia technology marketing, Imagination: “Imagination is a long-time member of Khronos and a leading contributor to GPU compute standards efforts such as OpenCL 1.2.

HTML5 is not ready yet – and will never be (and that is a good thing) – HTML5 Question #1 One of the big questions I repeatedly got at events lately is this: Is HTML5 ready yet? The answer is no, because HTML5 is not a bowl of spaghetti that you know when they are ready by flinging them against the wall. You see, even HTML4.01 or XHTML for that matter was never “ready”. Standard compliance on the web is a means to an end. We used spacer GIFs and   for padding and margins before CSS got support, we used tables for layout, we used image maps, we used image replacement, we used HTML generated from JavaScript for different browsers and whatever it took to get the best out of what we had in order to achieve the goal we set ourselves. The goal was always the same: deliver the best possible experience in an unknown, always changing environment. You don’t know what browser in what setting on which operating system with which security settings the end user has. What needs killing is the close-minded limited way we think about web applications. HTML is now a living standard.

Main Page/cms/security - WebGL Public Wiki The WebGL API provides a low-level, shader based, 3D graphics API based on OpenGL ES 2.0 that renders directly into an HTML5 Canvas element. As an API for the World Wide Web, WebGL necessarily conforms to the security principles of the web platform, and was designed with security in mind from day one. This white paper provides an overview of some of the security aspects of the WebGL specification and its implementations. Undefined Behavior In the OpenGL ES 2.0 specification, behavior is left undefined in various circumstances, generally in order to achieve the highest performance for native applications on the system. On the web platform, undefined behavior makes it impossible to write strong conformance tests, and may introduce security vulnerabilities. As one concrete example, consider the readPixels API. Out of Range Memory Accesses Access to Uninitialized Memory Shader Validation and Transformation Denial of Service Solutions already exist to this problem on some operating systems.
