We will talk about Q2VKPT, the Vulkan-based renderer for Quake 2 that uses hardware accelerated path tracing and advanced spatiotemporal denoising. We will cover some of the implementation details, including things like importance sampling, lighting, materials, and the denoising filters. In addition, we will discuss the challenges of using a physically based renderer with the assets from a game released over two decades ago.
In the first part of the talk we'll present the VK_NVX_device_generated_commands extension, which allows the GPU to generate the most frequent rendering commands on its own, including pipeline changes.In the second part well introduce new Vulkan VR extensions, discuss their usage and provide short samples for common use cases. We also give a brief update on the new OpenGL VR SLI extension, plans for new API interoperability and shortly touch on new Vulkan Nsight functionality.
This talk will feature an update on what's happening in the professional VR space at NVIDIA. We first introduce OpenGL and Vulkan VR functionality, and then will talk about how to drive dual-input HMDs from two GPUs efficiently.
Discover how over 100 companies cooperate at the Khronos Group to create open, royalty-free standards that enable developers to access the power of the GPU to accelerate demanding compute, graphics, and vision applications. Learn the very latest updates on a number of Khronos cross-platform standards, including the newly announced OpenXR for portable AR and VR, Vulkan, SPIR-V, OpenVX, OpenGL, and OpenCL. We'll also provide insights into how these open standards APIs are supported across NVIDIA's product families.
