GPU battle continues
Thursday, April 22, 2004 | Permalink

There have been some info leaking about the R420, though much of it have been contradicting, so it's hard to know what's true and not. But now a photo of the card has hit the net, and it seems credible. The cooling looks a little bit larger than what we're used to from ATi, but at least it seems to be single slot. It will be very interesting to see what this beast will manage once it's launched. Rumors say that it's going to be launched on Monday (April 26), but other dates such as May 3 and May 5 have also been mentioned. Personally I'm very excited and can hardly wait to see this thing in action. Rumors say it's going to kick the NV40's ass.

Received my work permit

Finally, after long time waiting, and way too much bureaucracy, I finally got my canadian work permit today. This means I will relocate to Canada and begin working at ATI in the very near future.

Time for another GPU battle
Tuesday, April 13, 2004 | Permalink

Interesting times are ahead of us. Another generation of GPUs are just around the corner.

As many of you may know, the NV40 is according to rumors going to be presented later tonight. Maybe around midnight some say, which would be early morning for us in Europe. It will be interesting to see what this beast can manage. Some info has already leaked out, but the reviews due tomorrow will certainly be an interesting read. Some photos have also hit the net. It seems that the dustbuster story will be repeated. One can only hope there will be more silent versions around.

In another couple of weeks the R420 will also be presented. Not as much information has leaked about it, but it seems to be quite a beast too. Recent rumors say it's a 16 pipeline badass, but as we all knows, the battle will not take place in technical PR numbers but in the benchmarks. And for us who write our own apps the feature battle will be just as interesting if not more.

Bring it on!

It's been a while, but now I've got a another demo up. Enjoy!

I've been a little dry on ideas lately, so I'm open for suggestions. If you got any great ideas, or any particular effects you'd like to see, please write a comment.

Yet another self shadowing bumpmapping demo update
Wednesday, January 28, 2004 | Permalink

This time I have added global shadows through shadow mapping, which combined with offset mapping further enhances the depth.
