Quotes

...full potential of heterogeneous computing," said Manju Hegde, corporate vice president, Heterogeneous Applications and Developer Solutions, AMD. "We are excited to see SPIR continuing to evolve to support OpenCL 2.0 and provide an improved platform for other heterogeneous language innovation. SPIR 2.0 provides the industry with a much needed standard binary format with sufficient flexibility to enable compiler and languages vendors with a common cross-platform target."
...an efficient standard for multiple platforms and vendors in Khronos," said Johan Andersson, technical director at Frostbite - Electronic Arts. "This work is of critical importance to get the most out of modern GPUs on both mobile and desktop, and to make it easier to develop advanced and efficient 3D applications - enabling us to build amazing future games with Frostbite on all platforms."
...5. Khronos also unveiled a new project called the Next Generation OpenGL Initiation, in turn asking for participation in the project to help "define a future standard for high-efficiency access to graphics and compute on modern GPUs."
"Out of all of the APIs we've ever designed at Khronos, including the original OpenGL ES, this is the most positive energy and momentum that I've ever seen" Trevett said. ®
