The YOUi Labs test stresses GPU shader floating point accuracy since it is critical to smooth and fluid NUIs that blend visually rich graphics content with gesture. Products compared in their QA labs alongside the GC4000 include Nvidia's Tegra 3, Imagination's SGX544, ARM's Mali-400 MP4, ARM's Mali-T604, Qualcomm's Adreno 225, and a reference discrete GPU based on Nvidia's GeForce GT 630M. Compared to all products, the Vivante GC4000 came at the top in accuracy with no artifact or rendering errors, and even surpassed the results of the discrete mobile GPU. For further details on the test results, please visit http://youilabs.com/blog/mobile-gpu-floating-point-accuracy-variances.

"Rendering accuracy based on GPU shader precision is one critical area where GPU vendors can differentiate themselves from the rest of the pack," stated Dr. Jon Peddie, of Jon Peddie Research, the industry's market research firm. "Modern mobile GPUs have transitioned into fully programmable processors using the latest graphics APIs and high-level shading languages, which can showcase unlimited rendering effects. However, even though products follow the same standard API specification, they are not created equal due to variations in shader design. Therefore, it is good to see a company like YOUi Labs help standardize the testing process with their GPU compatibility and quality test suite. This brings real value to the marketplace and consumer."

Floating point accuracy and performance is extremely important for image quality, shader-based user interfaces, 3D game rendering using the latest OpenGL® ES or DirectX® APIs, and GPU Compute using OpenCL™ or native Renderscript/Filterscript for vision processing in consumer and embedded devices. The same GC4000 shader core and unified driver stack scales across the full range of Vivante's mass market and mainstream offerings, including the smallest licensable OpenGL ES 3.0 core* at 3.5 mm2 (total silicon footprint using TSMC 40nm LP), and the latest extreme performance multicore GPU IPs like the released GC6000 Series and upcoming GC7000 Series targeting 14nm/16nm FinFET production.

"The YOUi Labs test result further demonstrates our commitment to delivering products that focus on rendering accuracy, quality, and innovation. From the beginning, we defined image quality and performance as two of the most important attributes in our GPUs and made sure they deliver the most life-like graphics to differentiate our products in the mobile GPU space. The results of this test and others evaluating mobile GPU IP shows we made the correct decision in our architecture. We look forward to building on our strengths and innovating-the-future of visual user experiences and 3D graphics," said Wei-Jin Dai, President and CEO of Vivante Corporation.

Every successful software product evolves from an idea to an enterprise system. Notably, the same way is passed by the product owner's company. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Oleg Lola, CEO of MobiDev, will provide a generalized overview of the evolution of a software product, the product owner, the needs that arise at various stages of this process, and the value brought by a software development partner to the product owner as a response to these needs.
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, introduced the technologies required for implementing these idea...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Big Data engines are powering a lot of service businesses right now.
