Chromium uses a multi-process1 architecture. Each webpage has its own rendering process, which runs in a sandbox and is very restricted in what it can access. This makes it much harder for malicious web content to mess with your computer. However, this is bad news for GPU acceleration since the renderer doesn't even have access to the GPU. This is solved by adding an extra process just for the...
This article describes the OpenGLBox sample in the Multi-OS Engine. This is a truly cross-platform sample. On the screenshots below you can see that the same Java-based application on iOS and Android looks and behaves the same way. Applications for different platforms share the data and part of the source code. How is this achieved? Scroll down!
In January we brought the Intel® Buzz Workshop series to Montreal for the first time.

Seth presents the Graphics Frame Analyzer for OpenGL. Learn the basic features and functionality of this extremely powerful analyzer.
In this tutorial, we will give an in-depth presentation of the architecture and micro-architecture of the media and graphics accelerator. We will explain the tradeoff between general purpose compute and hardware fixed functions. We will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of on-die integration. We will present the various programming models that are supported. We will present some...
